Did you know...only ONE-THIRD of employees are engaged at work?

Gallup Research 2016

%

Engaged at Work

%

Disengaged at Work

%

Actively Disengaged - Miserable at work and undermine others

On average, 17% of employees are actively disengaged, and cost companies $3400 per $10,000 of salary. (Gallup 2016).

So, let’s say your workforce’s median salary is $60,000. That means that each “actively disengaged employee” costs you $20,400 on average, or 34% of their salary.

If you have 500 employees and 17% are actively disengaged (86 employees) x $20,400 = costing you $1.75 million a year.

It costs a 500 person company about $1.75 million a year on actively disengaged employees.

It's costing you $20,400. Wouldn't you rather spend $100?

(Plus the $100 also helps improve an employee's engagement)

Help your employees feel more engaged, focused, confident and productive – for about $100/per person

  • Hands-on workshops for 25 – 100 people
  • 90-minute, half-day and full-day programs available
  • Fees vary, but it breaks down to about $100 -$150 per person – for a great return on investment
  • Includes interactive program, workbook and materials
  • Can deliver the program at your offices or offsite at the private UMass Club – 32nd Floor, One Beacon Street, with gorgeous views overlooking Boston
  • The “Summer Atop the City Series allows you to send a smaller group of women to a workshop, and join in with other Women’s Resource Groups, for a more affordable program

Erin has it figured out

Erin has it figured out – this is the big show, not a tryout. What, precisely, are you waiting for? She was amazing when I worked with her 25 years ago and she’s still making a ruckus.”
