Over 50% of Employees Say They Are Unhappy
Problems in the workplace begin when people don’t have a clear direction from their leaders and their values and purpose have become just some fancy words written on paper that have been filed away and forgotten. They are no longer alive and helping grow a thriving culture.
Take the first step by investing in your employees.
Companies are quickly learning the best way to invest in employees is by helping them become future ready. In addition to training, that includes helping them recognize untapped talents and skills and making them feel like a valued team member. Instead of spreading misery to their other co-workers, they’ll spread their positivity and energy for the company they love to work for. Not only will you see a boost in morale, you’ll also see the profitability of your organization increase.
What will 2025 look like for your business?
Let’s face it, today Millennials make up 50% of employees globally. And your Baby Boomers are reaching age 65 quicker and quicker. How will you continue to attract the skilled or future workforce you desire? One of the big benefits of a program like this is it highlights the diversity of your employees and creates an atmosphere of inclusion while helping you tap into hidden talents from committed employees.
Avoid a talent shortage.
If you have an engaged workforce with strong personal career brands, you can avoid a talent shortage.
The reviews posted will be talking about how you prepare them for their next steps, how you have a strong mentoring program, the excellent training you provide and the meaningful work that is done. Your employees become your best hiring ads and recruiters.
You’ll find yourself the employer of choice because in building your employees personal brand, you are highlighting all of the things that appeal to today’s emerging workforce.
Your people are your problem solvers.
It’s an investment in your company.
They are the ones to help you identify ways to save money and create better customer experiences.
Wouldn’t you rather have those employees on your team versus someone who just goes through the motion and punches a clock every day?
Building your employees personal career brand can turn an unprofitable environment into a revenue generator.
Give Employees Hope
When you show an employee you are willing to invest in them and their future, you’re giving them HOPE.
In their mind, that’s a signal you are preparing them for the next step or next promotional opportunity that comes available. Without HOPE, they’ll start looking for it elsewhere. It’s vital you make them see themselves as a part of the future vision of your organization.
When you do, you’ll see results like:
- Increased growth as leaders and teams
- Increased innovation
- Increased profits
- Repeat customers
- Decreased absenteeism
- Improved workplace morale
- Increased ability to recruit and retain high performing employees
- A decrease in inefficiencies
It’s a new approach to employee engagement…
Think of the competitive advantage you’d gain and how you’ll outpace your competition, if your workforce felt invested in and they tied their personal mission to that of your company?
I’ve been on the flip side. I’ve worked in an environment where employees felt unappreciated and unheard. Where no one is generating ideas and doing the bare minimum required to get by day after day.
Creating personal career brands for your employees’ means….
- No more wasting money on rehiring and retraining
- Overcoming a negative or lacking onboarding experience
- Aligning individual missions with their work or tasks to create an almost 50% boost in engagement and productivity
- Build strong teams
- An in-house team of brand ambassadors
Generate Excitement In Your Employee Base
By providing an employee-focused culture and setting up structures that foster career development opportunities through training, you reduce turnover and build loyalty. Studies show engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave an organization than those who are disengaged. The problem with unhappy or disengaged workers is their dissatisfaction spreads like cancer throughout a company. It creates issues company-wide and you see adversarial relationships develop inside your teams.

What’s The Value of an Engaged Employee?
We feel it’s priceless. When an employee is engaged, they are more productive, your customers have a better experience, retention is increased, and the culture of the organization becomes one people thrive in. Imagine if your company became the one everyone wanted to work for, and no one wanted to leave.
