April Drink & Think Topic: Employee Engagement: Capitalizing on Strengths in a World of Fixing Weaknesses
In a 2017 survey, Gallup discovered that about 70% of Americans are not engaged at work, which results in an economic payout of about $450 billion every year to cover the costs of disengagement in the workplace. However, when leading and operating out of a strengths-based mindset, you create a company culture of high engagement, retention, loyalty, and positive growth.
