Want Higher Engagement & Lower Turnover? Try a Little Compassion!
Wednesday 1:55 – 2:55 PM
According to Gallup, just 33% of American workers are engaged in their jobs. What’s worse, 52% say they’re “just showing up,” and 17% claim to be “actively disengaged.” Many of the reasons for low engagement center around poor relationships, lack of connection, and a toxic company culture. Employees who aren’t engaged are more likely to leave. It’s a vicious cycle that has been a perennial problem in businesses.
You may think you’ve tried everything – but have you tried compassion?
Compassion isn’t a soft skill… it’s a skill we can teach, and it has hard science to back it up.
