Here’s how to take the guesswork
of motivation, and create engaged
employees with credibility and class.

Our whole focus is taking the subjectivity out of motivation, as well as all the risk. We have found that many business leaders avoid any attempt to improve their employees' engagement level ... but not because they think "motivation" is unnecessary, rather they simply don’t know how to measure their return on investment.
If Any Of These 6 Problems Sound
Familiar, Then You're In The Right Place:
  1. You feel your people have huge hidden potential, but you can't seem to generate sustained productivity.
  2. People are fearful of the current "economic crisis", and it has become a distraction in your organization.
  3. You are feeling stress and anxiety because your current plan for inspiring and motivating your team is inconsistent and unfocused.
  4. You have a shrinking budget, and are seeking creative solutions to maximize your training dollars.
  5. Your credibility and image are on the line, and you need measurable data to support your decisions for investing in your people.
  6. You’re short on time and have limited resources, so creating a plan is difficult.


A recent comprehensive study of over 85,000 people working for large and mid-sized companies revealed only 14% of employees were fully engaged on the job and were willing to "go the extra mile" for their employers. The study's conclusion stated, "There is a vast reserve of untapped employee performance potential that can drive better financial results, if companies can successfully tap into this reserve." 1

This is further supported by these statistics:
  • 59% of workers are "not engaged", 14% are "actively disengaged", and only 27% of workers are described as "engaged" in their work. 2
  • Research from over 1.5 million employees, 87,000 business units, and 30 industries concludes that actively disengaged employees cost the economy between $292 billion and $355 billion a year. When injury, illness, turnover and other factors associated with negativity or active disengagement are included, the cost quickly approaches a trillion dollars, almost 10% of the U.S. GDP. 2
  • 70% of employers thought their employees felt good about their workplace, but only 44% of the workers agreed. 3

In a study on the effects of employee attitudes and behaviors on financial performance, the results were no surprise: “There is a direct link between employee satisfaction and customer satisfaction, and between customer satisfaction and improved financial performance.” 4

Staggering research reveals that stock prices of companies with highly engaged employees outperformed similar companies in the same industries by more than 2.5 to 1 during 2004. The stock prices of companies with disengaged employees lagged behind others in their industry by almost 5 to 1. 5

84% of highly engaged employees believe they can positively impact the quality of their company’s products compared to 31% of the disengaged. 72% of the highly engaged believe they can positively affect customer service compared to 27% of the disengaged. 68% of the highly engaged believe they can positively impact costs in their job or unit compared to 19% of the disengaged.
