The saying “a happy employee is an engaged employee” isn’t as true as we once thought. Many business leaders are striving to make their workforce happier in order to retain their top talent and increase productivity. But a happy employee doesn’t mean and engaged employee, and making culture decisions to drive happiness (think snacks and happy hours) won’t produce sustainable ROI. In fact, Gallup states that actively disengaged employees actually cost the US $450 to $550 billion per year in lost productivity.
In this webinar, join Nikki Lewallen, Head of Partnerships at Emplify, and Ellyn Ludden, Chief Visionary Officer at Team Summit, LLC, to understand why creating a culture centered around meaning is the key to increased engagement for lasting business impact. You’ll learn:
