Disengaged employees are costing the United States $370 billion annually. On the flip side, engaged employees can actually make their companies money by becoming a walking, talking billboard for them.
Employees who identify with being ‘engaged’ are 78% more likely to recommend their companies product or service. Whereas the employees who are unengaged are only recommending their companies product or services 13% of the time.
If you improve your employee engagement to a 4:5 ratio – you’re looking at a 65% increase in employee recommendations. That is a substantial increase from the 28% which was previously said to be the standard.
Start showing your employees you care by implementing a social knowledge sharing tool to increase all around engagement.
