A grade of 15 percent isn’t close to passing in any classroom. If a wise teacher saw that figure, he would take swift action to understand the student’s problem. The same should hold true for both employees and employers when they hear global employee engagement rates are hovering at 15 percent , per Gallup’s research. Or that a mere 27 percent of workers believe in their company’s values.
These shockingly low numbers are symptoms of a larger concern. Like the high schooler failing test after test, managers and their teams aren’t doing their part. The only way to bring up their “GPAs” is to promote better habits and make different choices.
