Did you know that 19 million Americans plan to leave their jobs in 2013?
According to World at Work, if an employee is dissatisfied with his/her manager, there is an 80 percent chance he/she is disengaged. This puts a lot of pressure on your management team, since disengagement causes misalignment and mediocre performance among employees, on top of increasing turnover.
More importantly, engaged employees are 87 percent less likely to leave their organization1.
Can your organization afford to ignore the impacts caused by disengagement and poorly equipped managers? Doubtful. That’s why Achievers has partnered with Aberdeen Group, industry research analysts, to deliver a webinar that addresses this major challenge in today’s workplace: developing and sustaining high performing leaders.
At the end of the day, it’s the results that matter—but what factors help your business get there? Unlocking the key to your employees’ engagement, performance and success starts with high performing leaders. Today’s managers are constantly pressured to exceed expectations and lead their teams to drive outstanding results, all while trying to recruit and retain their current team members. And as we stated above, the majority of employee disengagement stems from poor management.
So what’s the disconnection between engagement and leadership?
Well, managers are a primary lever in inspiring employees to drive business results, but there are not enough tools available to develop them. Specifically, managers do not have enough information to lead their teams to success. Managers crave analytics which identify key metrics that help them understand activity within their own teams; ultimately helping them lead better and make insightful decisions faster. Unfortunately, most managers aren’t given development opportunities or existing tools don’t give them what they need to drive success—until now.
To learn more about the power of analytics and developing managers to make better decisions that empower, engage, and unleash your top talent, join Mollie Lombardi, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Aberdeen Group, and Razor Suleman, Founder and Chairman at Achievers as they reveal the key to unlocking your employees’ success.
