Scientists globally warn about the effects stress has on employees and encourage companies to teach their employees to manage stress better. When an employee feels satisfaction and enthusiasm about his or her job, it “turns on” all learning centers in the brain, providing a greater focus, creativity, innovation, inspiration and smarter decisions.

A positive work environment is a prerequisite for people in any company to be proud ambassadors.

Companies with engaged employees have 6% higher profit margin (Towers Perrins) and 5 times higher shareholder returns over a 5-year period (Kenexa).

​According to Hay Group; Engaged staff in a good working environment will:

  • ​increase KPIs by up to 60%
  • contribute to increased profit by 4.5 time
  • staying in the company, 54% more likely
  • live relatively to expectations, 50% more likely

When we know that disengagement directly affects corporate earnings, its troublesome to find that only 13% of the global workforce is engaged at work (Gallup).
