‘Many people are starting to realize that they work a lot and that working on stuff they believe in (and making things happen) is much more satisfying than just getting a paycheck and waiting to get fired (or die).’ Seth Godin

Do you know if your employees are engaged? Do you know if they are aligned with the values and purpose of your business? Do you know how much unhappy, disengaged employees are costing you and your business?

With disengaged employees costing Australian businesses an estimated $54.8 billion per year, people are fast becoming one of the biggest challenges facing business leaders, outside of strategy, this includes you. Recent estimates indicate that between 50% and 70% of employees are disengaged from the organisations they work for. This means up to 70% of those people working for you don’t want to be there. Like other businesses, are you feeling the implications of this across profits, productivity, turnover, and employee health and wellbeing?

Do you know what a happy and engaged employee looks like? Employees who are engaged with managers, leaders and organisations are those who:

  • Believe in the purpose of the organisation and their own contribution
  • View their work as being about more than just a paycheque
  • Are thanked and acknowledged by their managers
  • Feel their employer cares about their health and well-being
  • Feel trusted with a level of autonomy and empowerment
  • Feel a sense of belonging and a sense of having a good cultural fit in the workplace
  • Are supported and offered growth and career opportunities.

If you aren’t satisfying these needs, employee levels of disengagement increase, and your bottom line suffers. Tech startup is aiming to help bridge this gap between organisations (that’s you) and employees, to create a more engaged and fulfilled workforce.
