Did you know only 13% of employees are engaged in their work? Staff's lack of productivity & engagement, absenteeism costs and sick leave cost Australian businesses over $28b per year, and up to 85% of staff say they're dissatisfied with some aspect of their work, according to recent studies.
A happy worker = a productive worker. The question above runs much deeper. Being an employer of choice attracts high performing talent, unified and productive teams, and cultivates seamless leadership that inspires, motivates and increases efficiency.
