Employees are more likely to be engaged to learn new things, try out new skills and discover new ideas when they feel comfortable and happy within their environment.
Ray Dalio explains in his book Principles that organisations should "create a culture in which it is okay to make mistakes and unacceptable not to learn from them" - Ray Dalio
With this in mind, it's essential to create a supportive culture and develop 'safe spaces' at work or team building activities, where employees feel it's okay to experiment and take risks without fear of blame or shame. 😳
Encouraging and developing your employee experience is not merely important for the future success of your business, but for your employees development, personal growth and engagement. 📈
A recent study from Gallup found that:
🖌️ Engaged employees take an average of 2.7 sick days per year, compared to disengaged employees who take an average of 6.2 days per year.
🖌️ Engaged employees are 17% more productive than their disengaged counterparts.
🖌️ Highly engaged business teams achieve 21% greater profitability.
In today's fast-paced disruptive world, being able to nurture and retain top talent might just be the key to set your business apart from the rest of the competition.
Are you providing your employees with the tools and environment they need to learn, grow, and succeed? 💭
