The Great Resignation is one of the biggest issues affecting many businesses today.

Disengagement in the workplace costs businesses more than they know.

  • Only 20% of the global workforce is engaged—that is where they are emotionally committed and bringing the highest performance to the organization. That means 80% are disengaged or even worse, actively disengaged. Research shows this is having a huge negative financial impact on businesses.
  • In Sweden, it’s even less. Only 18% of the Swedish workforce is engaged. Up to 32% experience daily worry and 36% experience high stress levels.
  • A worker’s disengagement costs the company about 1/3 of the worker’s salary on average.
  • Up to 70% of employees worldwide are not happy at work and are dreading Mondays.
  • 84 percent of employees in a recent poll said they plan to look for a new position within a year.
  • The Great Resignation is taking its toll on companies and people are actively looking for companies with great cultures

Effectively managing employee experience and your company culture are critical to your team success, not to mention the health of your entire organization.

Engaged employees are more likely to be happy employees creating a great culture where people want to stay

Benefits of having a happy employee versus an unhappy one is staggering:

1. Happy people work better with others 2. Happy people are more creative 3. Happy people fix problems instead of complaining about them 4. Happy people have more energy 5. Happy people are more optimistic 6. Happy people are way more motivated 7. Happy people get sick less often 8. Happy people learn faster 9. Happy people worry less about making mistakes – and consequently make fewer mistakes 10. Happy people make better decisions

It’s clear that a key goal for most businesses should be actively and strategically working on the company culture, which has shown to have a 756% increase in net income growth!

As a leader you may think about:

What if you could dramatically improve and validate the effectiveness of your employee experience and enhance the culture? What if you could teach yourself, your team members, and your organization to become more engaged and contribute significantly with higher performance and productivity? What if you could stop struggling with high employee turnover, low productivity, and high sick leave, and actually see the mindset shift employees need to make in order for the organization to thrive?

What Is the Cost?

The more important question is what is the cost of your company’s engagement dilemma? You can calculate that with the following formula: A company’s cost of employee disengagement: (Number of Employees) X (Percentage of Disengaged Employees) X (Your Average Employee Salary) X 1/3 Let’s say your company has 1,000 employees, and your company falls in line with the average of 80% employee disengagement and that your average employee salary is $30,000. This formula calculates the annual cost of your employee disengagement at close to a staggering $8 million! Imagine even if you were simply able to improve employee engagement to 50%. All of a sudden, that $8 million annual cost becomes roughly $5 million, a savings of $3 million to your company. This training could easily cost you $50,000, but we’re not charging $50,000. Or $20,000. Or $10,000. Or even $5,000. Registering for the ICES™ Live Certification Program is an investment in yourself personally and also in your company and the positive impact you will have.  You can get this valuable certification and training experience at the one-time cost of only 36.000 SEK (~$3,800). Yes, that’s less than 0.1% of the savings from transforming your company’s employee engagement in that example we gave.

About Us

Evoloshen’s Purpose is Bringing Joy to the workplace, with a new business model through innovation with corporate training and cultural hacking. Evoloshen Academy was recently recognized as one of the Top 10 Organizational Development Companies in Europe. While many look at global problems like economic growth, workforce effectiveness, employee turnover, chronic skills gaps,…and focus their time and energy fixing the problem, we take a different approach. How? By embodying the philosophy of the great scientist and awesome futurist, Buckminster Fuller who once said: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” And that’s exactly what we’re doing—helping our clients to create an engaging and purposeful business culture where employees are thriving. We work with our client companies to build new engaging models that make today’s problematic models obsolete, and at the heart of our approach is “culture hacking.” Thus, “culture hacking” is the art of involving people and education in smart effective ways to rapidly “recode” and advance culture, altering in the process the behaviors of everyday individuals to make them adopt smarter practices that elevate their lives.
