The worksite is dynamic, competes in a global economy and requires productive employees that are engaged while doing their best work, to help achieve the mission. But often we are seeing the consequences of unhappy, stressed, and unfulfilled employes. The results can be higher turnover, higher absenteeism, disgruntled employess and less productivity. For organizations and businesses, this often means less profits and perhaps eventually failure causing them to go out-of-business. In today's economy this is a sad reality.
Fast paced markets that are highly competitive with technology that is constantly changing describes most organizations regardless of the size, location, or the product/service produced. Employees have many competing priorities such as family, caregiver roles, long work hours, and social expectations to name a few. Employees are tired, ill and often have chronic, costly health conditions which impacts their ability to be fully present at work. Many of them are looking for a life that is not so fast paced and complex with less working hours.
Employers are the heart of the organization; they must feel respected, be understood and be using their best skill sets driven by their deep passion to give 100% while at work.
