How many of your health club’s employees are truly engaged at work? Unfortunately, it may be fewer than you’d think.
According to a Gallup poll, just 32% of U.S. employees reported being engaged at work. The majority (50.8%) of employees said they were "not engaged," and another 17.2% reported that they were "actively disengaged."
While these statistics are grim, they also point the way to an opportunity for club owners.
“If a leader and a club were able to increase engagement to 50% or 90%, this could be the untapped competitive advantage,” says Luke Carlson, CEO of Discover Strength in Chanhassen, MN. “On a deeper level, overcoming the barriers that lead to disengagement (job misery) is one of the true callings of effective leaders and managers.”
