Are you a Monday or a Friday person?

Monday people wake up at the start of the week full of energy. They spring out of bed in anticipation of the week ahead, and look forward to getting into work. Once there, they thrive in the workplace environment with their colleagues and gain great satisfaction from the contribution they make to their team and organisation. Friday people on the other hand drag themselves out of bed at the prospect of the week ahead and focus what energy they have, on getting through the week. They more than likely feel frustrated by a lack of purpose, autonomy or recognition which affects their drive to succeed and passion for the workplace.

The difference between the two is about how engaged they are with their employer. Winning organisations are full of engaged employees or Monday people. Engagement therefore can make the difference between a winning organisation and one that struggles to meet its objectives and revenue targets. How do you know however if your employees are engaged? Engagement itself is complex to measure as it’s made up of a number of components all of which contribute overall to how engaged a person feels. An engaged person will have high levels of energy at work, a commitment to deliver in their role, they will thrive on the challenge their work brings and will take pride in what they do. They will most likely feel positive, fulfilled, inspired and motivated which in turn drives overall productivity and therefore the success of the business as a whole.

Unsurprisingly, winning organisations recognise the importance that their people make to the ultimate success of the organisation and invest in creating a business of Monday people not just through their initial recruitment but through everything they do. Those that get it right recognise that what is really important to people at work are the relationships they have with others, the role that they do and the rewards that they receive. Businesses then drive engagement by supporting and trusting their staff, encouraging and listening to ideas, setting clear goals for their employees, providing enjoyable work with the freedom to make decisions, praising their staff and providing opportunities for development.

In return, businesses have been found to experience 18% higher productivity, 12% higher customer advocacy, 2.5 times greater revenue growth, twice the annual net profit of those with low scores and 40% lower turnover rates.* The benefits of measuring engagement in the workplace therefore speak for themselves. Only then can a business identify where its vulnerabilities lie, address them and improve the performance of the business as a whole.
