Employee Engagement in Australia
Current statistics from Conscious Work show that 70% of the workforce are disengaged at work. Alarming figures for employee health & wellbeing, organisational productivity and our overall organisations bottom lines.
While organisations are looking to be proactive in increasing employee engagement levels, with new initiatives such as yoga, fruit boxes, etc they are clearly not working to fix the fundamental problems. In 2016 the Huffington Post ran an article ‘Less than half of Aussies are happy with their job’. Traditionally the figure has sat at 50% of the workforce being unhappy or disengaged at work. In recent years this figure has risen to 70% which suggests new more meaningful approaches are required, including more bottom up approaches rather than just the top down initiatives. It is human nature to want to achieve and be successful in our employment. No one wakes up thinking I want to go to work today and perform badly, this thinking goes against our fundamental human drive to succeed. Whether you look at Maslow’s theory of self-actualisation, or Martin Seligman’s PERMA model (Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Achievement’ this model shows people need to have these five core elements met to achieve psychological wellbeing and happiness.
Given the average employee spends 1/3 of their life at work, 1/3 sleeping and a 1/3 in other pursuits, it makes sense that employees look to achieve a lot of these five core elements through their employment. We know people want to show up at work feeling great about themselves most of the time. The new world of work and living can be overwhelming for people, leaving them unsure how to navigate their work and life.
