Were you wondering why there has been all this recent buzz about engagement? Looking at studies from 2017, Gallup found that in Luxembourg approximately 80% of the respondents felt disengaged in their work and in addition 12% felt actively disengaged – and Luxembourg is among the countries that had better figures than most! This means that a lot of companies have to deal with disengaged and actively disengaged employees, who do not perform to their best ability, all of which inevitably has a direct impact on their productivity levels. In the case of Germany, Gallup estimated the loss in productivity due to actively disengaged employees at between €73 billion and €95 billion per year . This explains why it has become so crucial for companies to consider engagement and to ask themselves how they can turn things around and motivate their employees.
Capability building may be a term you have not encountered yet, so perhaps a short definition will help to set the scene: to quote Norm Smallwood and Dave Ulrich in the Harvard Business Review it is
“These capabilities—the collective skills, abilities, and expertise of an organization—are the outcome of investments in staffing, training, compensation, communication, and other human resources areas. They represent the ways that people and resources are brought together to accomplish work. They form the identity and personality of the organization by defining what it is good at doing and, in the end, what it is. “
MindForest is delighted to invite you to its virtual BrainBreakfast “Working Remotely? How to Navigate towards Increased Engagement!” which will take place on 15th April 2020 from 9:00 to 10:00 online.
