I Read a Great Book – It was not about Wellness
Believe it or not, the book was not about wellness. The theme was how to overcome organization drag to unleash your team’s productive power. The authors are Michael Mankins and Eric Garton of Bain & Company Inc.
I couldn’t help aligning the results of an effective corporate wellness plan with the research and results of the book titled Time Talent Energy. See what you think of the following highlights.
- The top producing companies have over 40% more productive power at their disposal.
- These companies often experience a 30-50% higher operating profit margin.
- Over an extended period of time these companies produce more than 30x the output of other companies.
Why? It is about people and the management of time, talent and energy. “The more energy people bring to the marketplace, the higher the quality of output they produce”.
An employee who is satisfied with his or her work is 40% more productive than an unsatisfied employee.
Engaged and inspired employees are measurably and consistently more productive. The research goes on to identify how the most productive organizations deploy these engaged and inspired employees in the most critical roles of the business.
How do we connect with the research of this book?
This research allows us to reflect on the connectivity of overall employee wellness and the successful operation of a business. As the markets gather more and more information regarding productive, industry-leading businesses, we continue to connect the lines and dots of productivity to healthy and active employees. An employer’s commitment to the evolution of the culture reinforces a need to infuse the organization with a consistent application of communications, events, rewards and measurements commensurate with the basic underpinnings of a corporate wellness program.
Invite your employees, your prospects and your customers to take care of the critical aspects of their business by a continued focus on their most productive employees and the effort to maintain, develop and expand this core resource of every company
