A highly engaged workforce translates to measurable business results in an organization, but not without a price. In today’s always-on world, the line between work and life is increasingly blurred. Recent research from Yale shows that one in five highly engaged employees is significantly stressed and at risk of burnout.
Organizations seeking to maximize engagement and minimize burnout must focus on the entire employee experience. From values and culture to rewards and recognition, positive employee experiences contribute to several business outcomes, including greater diversity of leadership, lower turnover in critical roles, and more positive employee engagement.
