You’ve seen the numbers. According to Gallup, up to 85% of the global workforce is not engaged, and over 21% of those not engaged are actively disengaged. In addition, according to Willis Towers Watson, more than 25% of employees expect to leave their current job within the next two years. Lack of engagement is frequently cited as a contributing factor.
Lack of engagement puts a drag on morale, image and reputation, and ultimately, sales and revenue. Employee turnover produces additional cost burdens associated with recruiting, selecting, training, and retaining new employees. On the other hand, a fully engaged and satisfied workforce translates into loyal clients and sustained sales growth.
While the solution may seem obvious, it has proven difficult to implement in practice. There are several reasons for this, which we will go into during the course of the webinar. The good news is that some of the most effective approaches for dealing with employee disengagement are based on a simple premise: meeting basic human needs. And at the top of the list are recognition, growth and contribution.
This webinar will show you how to create a culture in which every employee becomes a mentor to someone else, thereby not only raising the level of engagement, but overall satisfaction as well. It is called structured mentoring programme, which addresses the shortfalls typically associated with traditional mentoring, which tends to be more unstructured and ad hoc.
The cost of employee disengagement is growing, putting a drain on all aspects of your enterprise, whether it be commercial, public, or nonprofit. On the other hand, the benefits of creating and sustaining a culture of growth and contribution through a structured mentoring programme are significant.
These include: increased employee attraction, engagement, satisfaction, and retention; increased innovation through the generation of new ideas at the working level; increased revenues, profits, customer satisfaction, and market share.
This webinar is based on over 13 years of university-based research and direct application in organizations of all sizes, spanning the public, private and non-profit sectors all around the globe. Help your organization become part of the top 15 percent by having a fully engaged workforce.
