When it comes to bridging the engagement gap, are your managers part of the problem or part of the solution?
If you weren’t able to attend Ann Herrmann-Nehdi’s recent HRDQ-U webinar, “Developing ‘Thinking Managers’ to Bridge the Engagement Gap,” here’s a taste of what you missed:
- Survey after survey shows that a large portion of the workforce is either only partially engaged or totally disengaged.
- US businesses lose $11 billion annually as a result of employee turnover.
- Managers account for as much as 70% of variance in employee engagement scores.
- Everyone processes information differently based on how they prefer to think, and these preferences affect what will engage them, what will frustrate them, how they prefer to get work done, and what kinds of work will inspire them to give it their all.
