Looking to have high-performing employees?
Employee disengagement is costly. According to a Harvard Business Review report, unhappy employees cost employers anywhere from $450 billion to $550 billion every year.
Happy employees deliver up to 50% higher performance and drive on average 20% more profits.
The stats are clear: highly engaged employees drive more business.
With 25 years of experience in leadership & culture strategy, Annicken R. Day is helping leaders create empowered and engaged employees.
