“I challenge you to take on the role of change champion as you begin redefining your company culture and make the demonstration of respect as important as achieving results.
Mark Babbitt and Chris Edmonds showed me how. They'll do the same for you.”
The Challenges You Face
48 million US workers voluntarily quit their jobs in 2021.
40% of today's employees will quit in the next 6 months.
Are you ready for that?
Even before the pandemic hit us hard, many leaders like you have been puzzled by the failure to retain top talent. Additionally, we leaders struggled to improve low employee engagement numbers, less-than-ideal customer service ratings, and many other traditional metrics. Throw in “The Great Resignation” – over 48 million US workers voluntarily quit their jobs in 2021 – and many business leaders end up feeling frustrated.
So frustrated, you may be thinking:
“It’s a sign of the times.
There's nothing I can do about it.
People don't want to work."
Wrong. People do want to work.
They just want to work for good companies and inspiring leaders.
Toxic work cultures are the top factor driving employees to quit today.
You read that right. The research that led to Good Comes First shows that workplace respect is most important to today’s employees.
In today's workplace, employees are fueled by a reprioritization of sorts. After working from home and finally having a say in where, when, and how their work got done, people – good people ready to do good work – want something different. Specifically, they want to work for managers and colleagues and employers who treat them with the respect they’ve earned.
Are you still not sure leaders should focus on respect just as much as they do results?
Consider the findings from two comprehensive studies by none other than MIT:
- September 2021: MIT Sloan Management Review found that the most crucial factor in a positive employee experience is workplace respect.
- January 2022: MIT Sloan also determined that toxic company cultures are 10.4 times more likely to contribute to attrition than compensation.
And yet too many employers still don’t prioritize workplace respect. Many, in fact, still seem to believe employees are replaceable. And too many old-school leaders still seem to think their employees have no choice but to tolerate toxic work conditions.
Don't let a toxic work culture drive your
employees out the door.
