What is your biggest challenge?

The Gallup Organization estimates that there are 22 million actively disengaged employees costing the American economy as much as $350 billion dollars per year in lost productivity including absenteeism, illness, and other problems that result when employees are unhappy at work.

Employees with low morale will display signs that include: increased absenteeism, conflicts with co-workers, insubordination, decreased productivity, disorganized and unkempt work environments, routinely complaining about seemingly insignificant work-related issues, and increased complaints in regards to the employee’s behavior (Contemporary, 1999)

A study by the Society for Human Resource Management states that the average cost to hire an employee is $4,129, with around 42 days to fill a position.

According to Glassdoor, the average company in the United States spends about $4,000 to hire a new employee, taking up to 52 days to fill a position. U.S. employers are experiencing the lowest job satisfaction rate in 20 years.

Time-to-hire has jumped from an average of 27 days to 41 days to onboard a new employee, but top candidates are taken off the market within 10 days. Source: Paycor

According to Forbes, employee satisfaction is the top factor behind customer satisfaction. When employees don’t feel happy, their interactions set the tone for a negative customer experience and loss of brand loyalty.
