WOW! transformation, a talent development consulting firm that helps optimize the return on your talent investment has a brilliant blog that is worth keeping a close eye on for insights into improving your business. We follow it regularly but this month’s post on employee engagement really caught our eye.

We all know that investing in good, talented employees is fundamental to any successful business but Jeffery Deckman’s post highlights how a company’s return on this investment can actually be hindered by poor employment engagement. He sidelines all the emotion and brings the idea right down to simple mathematics and the numbers are extremely surprising.

We diligently run our own employee surveys that we also provide our clients with to ensure company engagement and keep productivity levels high. In fact, we believe this is a key to our success despite our small numbers but even we were shocked so it is certainly worth a read.
