Treat yourself to a cup a joe ― September 29 is National Coffee Day. To celebrate, we’re rounding up a list of buzzy workplace stats (for you to peruse as you sip on your java) to remind you to stay productive and engaged both inside and outside of the office.
Sure, coffee helps. But it’s up to you to make a conscious effort to be actively engaged.
Because, guess what? If you’re not engaged, you may not be in the right company (psst… we can help with that). But more than that, disengaged employees lead to workplace inefficiencies and decreased productivity.
Connected employees foster productivity. According to The McKinsey Global Institute, productivity improves 20-25 percent when colleagues work together and collaborate. Hey, it helps to be connected. #GetSocial.
Show off your skills. There’s a reason you were hired for them, after all. According to Gallup, employees who exercise their strengths daily are 8 percent more productive, and are 6 times more likely to be engaged in their work
Productivity is on the rise across the board ― although we can improve on that. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics employee productivity grew .3 percent from 2011 to 2016.
Beware of the burnout. Being overloaded with work tasks has proven to decrease productivity by 68 percent in employees who truly believe ‘there aren’t enough hours in the day,’ according to a survey conducted by Cornerstone OnDemand.
Working remote has its perks. According to Gallup, employees who spend 60 to 80 percent of their time working remotely are likely to have the highest workplace engagement.
