It’s no surprise that engaged employees are proven to be more focused work harder and enjoy their jobs more than those who aren’t stimulated by their day-to-day work. In fact, highly engaged teams show a 21% increase in profitability.
Employee retention and engagement should always be top of mind for employers, but it’s even more important today. The way a company treats its employees during “trying times” can pave the way for how the organization is viewed not only by employees, but also by potential and current clients.
It’s not only large brands that are vulnerable to this increased visibility. COVID-19 forced layoffs, furloughs, and reduced salaries around the world that few businesses were able to remain immune from. Customers and potential new hires are watching brands during this time to see how difficult situations are handled. “How did you handle the crisis?” is likely to become a frequently asked question from customers and potential employees.
Virtual fatigue is a real and pressing issue that many employees are facing as they have transitioned into a work from home structure. More than ever, employees are questioning the “why” behind their work as they feel increasingly more drained by video conference-packed days.
COVID-19 aside, employee retention and engagement aren’t new issues. A poll by Gallup that was taken pre-COVID-19 revealed that only 33% of American workers felt energized by their jobs. 52% said they’re “just showing up,” and 17% described themselves as “actively disengaged.”
