It is said that luck results from preparation meeting opportunity. But organizations not wanting to leave success to chance would be well served to recognize that getting the most from their people results from employee engagement meeting employee enablement. That is, leaders not only need to motivate employees but also to position them to succeed. Unfortunately, Hay Group employee opinion norms suggest that in a typical company today, more than half of employees are lacking in engagement (the “want to”), enablement (the “can do”), or both.
What are the implications for organizational leaders? To provide answers, we conducted a longitudinal study involving over 130,000 employees in a diverse set of companies. We examined where engagement and enablement levels changed and where they stayed the same, which employees remained with their organizations and which left, and the work environment shifts that triggered improvements in engagement and enablement.
In this webinar, we’ll reveal:
The consequences of inattention to engagement and enablement gaps, in terms of the erosion of employee commitment and increased employee turnover;
The business case for getting in right, through enhanced individual and organizational performance; and
Data-backed strategies for increasing the percentages of employees in your organization who are both willing and able to make maximum contributions.
