The pressures on corporate leaders are unlike any we’ve seen in recent memory. A global pandemic, new work-from-home realities, childcare and eldercare pressures, and social and racial justice movements are accelerating a re-think of what it takes to create an emotionally well, engaged, high performance workforce.
Leaders from Kumanu and Willis Towers Watson shared brand new data from a nationally representative survey of employees conducted by The Harris Poll on Wednesday, October 21st. Featured research was completed both prior to and during the COVID19 pandemic that reveals:
- 3 ways that dignity plays a powerful role in determining how your employees feel about work
- 6 core work purpose typologies in play in your workforce today, from the brand new Harris-Kumanu Purpose Index
- 12X the employee engagement and half the rate of depression when these two factors are combined
