Team Engagement and Wellbeing – the power of Music to increase team engagement
Managing mental health
Leadership post lockdown
In our recent Webinar we addressed the issue of “cabin fever” – how to identify symptoms when engaged with team members remotely, and how to open up a wellbeing conversation. Our emphasis was on one to one but what about the whole team if you are a team leader. How do you maintain engagement and why is that important?
In this new Webinar we want to expose you to the power of music as a means to increase team engagement when working remotely. We may have dates for lifting lockdown restrictions, but that does not mean that employee wellbeing will suddenly improve and that after a year in lockdown team members will be completely engaged with other team members and their employer organisation. We will also reprise some of the techniques and tools you can use to spot signs of anxiety (or cabin fever). So rich content to take away and a real time music experience during the webinar to show how a music intervention can support renewed engagement. Be prepared!
What is the context? Before Covid-19 there was evidence about engagement published by Gallup with North American data.
Disengaged employees cost the US between $483 and $605 billion each year in productivity loss. (Gallup, 2017).
Here are some advantages when companies successfully manage engagement versus those plagued with non-engaged employees: • Absenteeism: 41% lower • Turnover: 59% lower • Employee safety incident: 70% fewer • Productivity: 17% higher • Sales: 20% higher • Profitability: 21% higher
Companies with engaged employees outperform the competition by as much as 202%! (Gallup, 2017) High engagement measures also have great impact on: • Creativity and innovation • Quality for products and services • Image and reputation • Talent retention • Motivation • Team spirit • Consumer Relationship • Employee well-being.
Fast forward to 2020 at the height of the pandemic, and Gallup were closely tracking the engagement and wellbeing of the US workforce during this unprecedented time of disruption. In early May 2020, employee engagement in the U.S. accelerated to a new high.One month later, Gallup tracking revealed the most significant drop they have recorded in their history of tracking employee engagement in the U.S., dating back to 2000.
