Did You Know?

  • Over 70% of employees are NOT fully engaged and have withdrawn their emotional commitment
  • Many CEO’s have begun to question whether their employees really have their hearts in their work
  • This reduction in employee engagement costs US businesses over $270 billion dollars a year
  • Increased engagement can lead to 2-3% increase in operating margin while a reduction in engagement results in a 1-2% decrease in both operating margin and net profit

Current research points to the erosion of employee engagement as the single greatest business challenge that organizations face today. The majority of employees are working hard, but new harsh work realities are taking their toll: longer hours, fewer resources, more time in the reactive firefighting mode rather than thinking strategically and celebrating success, seemingly arbitrary constant change and on-going uncertainty is having an adverse affect on today’s workforce.

It’s easy to believe that your employees are engaged when they work long hours, and you have low turnover. However, people often put in long hours begrudgingly and stay in their jobs for reasons other than being fully engaged.

Revenue, profitability, sales, service, productivity, customer retention, quality, efficiency, and bottom line performance are all compromised if you have a workforce in which engagement is less than what it should be.

Is there a way to help your people avoid disengagement given the business challenges you face? The answer is, yes! Our Employee Engagement  training shows leaders and managers how to create an environment in which employees are engaged in spite of business obstacles and challenges they face.

But Engaged in What?
While Employee Engagement is on the minds of most HR and business leaders today, an important question is not being asked often enough: “You want your employees to be engaged, but engaged in what?”  We believe that Employee Engagement is worthless and even detrimental if your employees and teams are focused on priorities that don’t align with your key business priorities.

Research shows that over one third of the workforce does not understand or buy into their organization’s business strategy.  This makes successful strategy execution a Herculean task. In contrast, enabling your workforce to be fully engaged in your business strategy drives strategy realization and increased competitiveness.

Employee Engagement Training Program Description
Employee Engagement Training provides your managers with proven tools and strategies to enable them to mobilize their employees’ energy and commitment to be engaged and aligned with your business strategy, mission critical priorities, and improvement initiatives.

Research has identified over 300 engagement drivers and confirms that only a “vital few” create significant engagement gains. We have synthesized these top drivers into the ACE™ meta-model that acts as the cornerstone of Leading for Employee Engagement.

We reviewed the top Leadership Development offerings and selected LSA’s 12-month Leadership Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the program, approach, and results was phenomenal. While other programs may be better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.
