Globalisation and the distributed workforce are creating immense challenges
In the past, employees worked with a team of people in an office. Today they connect via email, chat, and conference calls and these impersonal, fragmented communications between workers in multiple locations lead to disengaged employees and ineffective outcomes.
Research shows that organisations with high employee engagement outperform those with low engagement by over 200%. Employee engagement and wellness, viewed in the past as the responsibility of the HR department, are becoming core to business strategy.
As we move to a primarily digital economy, businesses have a critical need to invest in tools that help them better understand when their employees are happy, have a sense of purpose, and are fully invested in their organisation’s mission and culture.
