Disengagement has been plaguing the workforce for years, showing little improvement in recent times. When your employees are not motivated by their work and feel stuck, they may become mindless clock punchers and start to look for work elsewhere. What’s worse, your company may be stuck with a high turnover rate.

According to the 2015 Human Capital Trends report by Bersin for Deloitte, leadership development should be a top priority for companies. The report shows that fewer than 50 percent of C-suite executives feel they are receiving any development at all and only 6 percent of survey respondents report they have “excellent” programs in place to develop Millennials, despite the fact that 53 percent of Millennials aspire to become the leader or senior executive of their own organization.

This leads to a weak leadership pipeline that will have a negative impact on employee engagement in the years to come, considering that managers account for as much as 70% of variance in employee engagement scores (Gallup).

How can employers give their staff a boost and get them engaged in their work? The infographic by MyWorkNinja, a service that connects people with ICF certified executive coaches, shows how leadership coaches can empower employees with the tools they need to set personal and professional goals, develop new skills, and achieve a better work-life balance, all through individualized career development strategies.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • 67% of American employees say they feel disengaged at work.
  • 57% of employees say they prefer corrective feedback, and 72% said their performance would improve if managers provided corrective feedback.
  • 70% of people who send weekly updates to friends and write down their goals achieve success. Leadership is the hardest skill to find in employees.
  • 41% of job seekers want more work-life balance.

When you create a team of committed employees who want to evolve, the possibilities for company growth are endless.
