Mark Graban wrote an excellent blog post about Gallup’s recent survey of strength usage at work… or lack thereof. Only 30% of people really are engaged at work, which means 70% of them are not engaged or actively disengaged! I’ve seen past reports for other countries (UK and Australia namely) and the results are similar. I haven’t seen results for France, but I guess they would be similar.
Mark’s point is that Lean can help with increasing engagement at work. I would even dare to say that it can make employees thrive and flourish provided it’s done for good reasons (improve work conditions and serve clients better, in this order, then money will follow).
I couldn’t agree more. Read his post here:
