Productivity worldwide has been declining for 20 years
There is one thing enlightened leadership will understand
To reach higher engagement is to have greater access to consciousness within the individual. You can not learn it, you can not push it, you can not pull it, nor dangle incentives in front of it. To increase its flow, you must become it, by letting go that which is restricting its flow.
Look at the numbers
A recent Gallup Report*
Only 14 per cent of employees in Australia and New Zealand are ‘engaged’ in their jobs. Employees who work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organisation forward.
An overwhelming 71 per cent are ‘disengaged’. These employees are essentially “checked-out”. They’re sleepwalking through their workday, putting time – but not energy or passion into their work.
Actively disengaged employees
As many as 15 per cent are ‘actively disengaged’. These employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged co-workers accomplish.
Those in leadership positions fared even worse
With ‘only one in five leaders engaged in the jobs’. That is 80 per cent of key decision-makers across the organisation. (* State of the Global Workplace Gallup Report 2017)
86 per cent of our organisation is struggling and the cost is…
Also according to Gallup, disengaged employees have 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity and 15% lower profitability. When that translates into dollars, you're looking at the cost of 34% of a disengaged employee's annual salary, or $3,400 for every $10,000 they make. That is a lot of money!
Worldwide research shows that pervasive tension occurs within individuals, at all levels throughout the organisation.
When tension is ignored, it denies organisations millions in unrealised revenues; resulting in massive employee disengagement and unreached productivity, staff health issues, and absenteeism.
We now know that the degree of negative tension constraining the individual – is equal to the degree of disengagement that they are experiencing at home and in the workplace.
Managing or seeking relief from inner-tension sounds great in the short term. Let’s face it - disengagement is still contained. The individual has to be willing to learn how to release it and let it go.
Clarity is an incredibly simple yet effective method for ‘releasing or letting go’ of pervasive inner-tension – at the same time increasing receptivity – starting from just 5-minutes a day on a regular basis.
We can show you how easily leadership. managers and employees ‘buy into’ Clarity, as a personal life skill that they value – and the organisation can quickly gain new levels of productivity…
A reality check for leadership & stakeholders
As a leader, you need to take action to address employee disengagement. If not, the vision you have for your organisation can turn into a blurry outline, rather than the clear progressive steps – you had envisioned.
The Gallup Reports referred to paint a sad picture for both leadership and stakeholders, one being that every Monday morning you are paying your employees, including all levels of leadership the equivalent of a full tank of fuel, and only receiving around 14% of the fuel in the tank.
Therefore your vision for the organisation, along with potential new growth opportunities will be seriously restricted, denying you a healthy return on investment. Why? Because all of your old and new strategic planning, initiatives, and technical training, still need to get through this internal pipeline that is around 86% restricted by leadership and employee disengagement.
However, to the enlightened leader, all the above points to a golden, golden opportunity - but only if action is taken!
