The impact of employee engagement on an organization’s success has become increasingly evident in recent years. Studies show that companies with highly engaged employees are 20% more profitable than companies with less engaged employees (Gallup, State of the Global Workplace). What’s more, high engagement within an organization reduces turnover, wastage, friction, and customer complaints. Unfortunately, 85% of employees report that they are not engaged in their roles, leaving a huge gap in potential.

With many organizations going through changes amid the COVID-19 pandemic and with some merely trying to hang on, employee engagement is more important than ever, and yet more difficult to achieve than before.

Psychometrics have been used for decades by large, global organizations to select top talent and lead their teams and now smaller organizations are also adopting the practice and benefitting from the data and insights. Join Marnie Kiel to learn more about psychometrics and how their use can assist leaders in engaging their people and strengthening their companies.
