Earlier today I participated in a call with Marcus Buckingham, author of Now, Discover Your Strengths and Go Put Your Strengths to Work. This summer he’s presenting a Summer of Development series of telephone calls to promote the concepts from Go Put Your Strengths to Work.
Today he was asked – What’s the #1 fact or statistic that I could share with my boss so she can understand the power of strengths?
His response ought to be given to every CEO in the world.
The Gallup organization asked 198,000 employees working in 7,939 business units within 36 companies: At work do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?
When they compiled the findings and compared business units, they found that when employees answered STRONGLY AGREE to that question, they were….
- 50% more likely to work in business units with lower employee turnover
- 38% more likely to work in more productive business units
- 44% more likely to work in business units with higher customer satisfaction scores
Currently, only 17% of organizations have a majority of employees who agree that they apply their strengths at work every day.
If you don’t do what you do best every day,
it’s time to make some changes.
