INFOGRAPHIC: Boost Employee Engagement & Drive Better Business
August 5, 2013 / Employee Engagement / Virgin Pulse
Did you know that 60 percent of employees think their employers don’t care about their overall wellbeing, and only 30 percent say they’re actively engaged at work? As a result, 80 percent of employers underperform on S&P when engagement is low – a startling number and major obstacle for today’s employers.
Over the past few months, we’ve kept our eye on keys trends and statistics, collecting facts and figures on employee engagement, company culture and health and wellness. The key takeaway? Poor engagement and unhealthy employees have a direct impact on an organization’s bottom line.
But hey, it’s not all bad news! Companies that support employees’ overall Total Quality of Life (mental, physical, emotional, financial health) drive engagement and actually improve workplace culture and engagement. In fact, 87 percent of prospective employees say that health and wellness offerings play a key role when determining an employer. Organizations that address employees’ Total Quality of Life through a robust workplace wellness program are poised to reap the benefits from a healthier, happier, more engaged workforce.
So, what are some of the other benefits of a highly engaged workforce? Check out our infographic below.
