Companies that invest in their workforce do so for various reasons – retention , staff development, productivity or just good mojo. For those who are looking for clear statistical data before making a decision, here are five reasons to invest in team building initiatives:
70 % of U.S. workers are not engaged at work
Companies with engaged employees earn 2.5 times the revenue than competitors with low engagement levels.
Problems with direct supervisors account for 49% of disengaged employees.
40% of employees who receive poor job training leave their position within the first year
$11 billion is lost annually to employee turnover
