End the Workplace Disengagement Epidemic (1 Employee at a Time)

RevolutionHR started this petition to Business Owners, Business Leadership, Board Members Business Leaders Worldwide

We spend 1/3 (or more) of our lives at work. According to Gallup, 900 million people are "not engaged", meaning they lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in organizational goals or outcomes. And 340 million are "actively disengaged," indicating they are unhappy and unproductive at work and liable to spread negativity to coworkers.

The Global Economy is Impacted:

The result of this negative work experience for so many is "the quality of their workplace experience is inevitably reflected in the quality of their lives".

This of huge importance when considering "why the global recovery remains sluggish, while social unrest abounds in many countries".

Who Needs to See the Power of the People:

1. Board Members and Business Leaders

Gallup reports "Business leaders worldwide must raise the bar on employee engagement. Increasing workplace engagement is vital to achieving sustainable growth for companies, communities, and countries --- and for putting the global economy back on track to a more prosperous and peaceful future." 

We need Board Room discussion and a special committee formed for Engagement. It's no longer working to only have a committee for Compensation/Benefits.  The people need more. We need leadership incentives and budgets focused around moving the needle one employee at a time. 

2. Human Resources Technology

Many times HR Technology is focused on outsourcing, administration and other big corporate initiatives rather than individual employee engagment and growth. This is simply where the dollars are within corporate buyers. The individual employee has all but lost his or her voice in the matter outside of engagement surveys like Gallup. 

It's time we focus on empowering people with the tools to take control of their own engagement, happiness at work and their career. The world is increasingly mobile with over 4.5 billion mobile subscribers and 64% of workers using smartphones at their desk while at work. It was also recently reported that the average person checks their phone 150 times a day (Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers Internet Study).

HR technology has the power to reach people (right in the palm of their hand) like never before. If business leaders support budgets or simply prioritize internal intiatives that build employee engagement and individual growth (not simply salary/merit increases), then this will allow HR technology providers to focus on solutions for the epidemic.
