Lack of engagement in the workplace is
one of the biggest issues
affecting businesses today.
Unhappiness in the workplace costs
businesses more than they know.
- Only 13% of the global workforce is engaged—that is where they are emotionally committed and bringing the highest performance to the organization. That means 87% are disengaged or even worse, actively disengaged. Research shows this is having a huge negative financial impact on businesses.
- A worker’s disengagement costs the company about 1/3 of the worker’s salary on average.
- Up to 70% or more are not happy at work and are dreading Mondays.
- 84 percent of employees in a recent poll said they plan to look for a new position within a year.
Effectively managing employee engagement
is critical to your team success, not to mention the health of your entire organization.
Engaged employees are more likely to be happy employees
Benefits of having a happy employee versus an unhappy one is staggering:
1. Happy people work better with others
2. Happy people are more creative
3. Happy people fix problems instead of complaining about them
4. Happy people have more energy
5. Happy people are more optimistic
6. Happy people are way more motivated
7. Happy people get sick less often
8. Happy people learn faster
9. Happy people worry less about making mistakes – and consequently make fewer mistakes
10. Happy people make better decisions
It’s clear that a key goal for most
businesses should be increasing

What Is the Cost?
The more important question is what is the cost of your company’s engagement dilemma?
You can calculate that with the following formula:
A company’s cost of employee disengagement:
(Number of Employees) X (Percentage of Disengaged Employees) X (Your Average Employee Salary) X 1/3
Let’s say your company has 1,000 employees, and your company falls in line with the average of 87% employee disengagement and that your average employee salary is $30,000. This formula calculates the annual cost of your employee disengagement at a staggering $8.7 million!
Imagine even if you were simply able to improve employee engagement to 50%. All of a sudden, that $8.7 million annual cost becomes $5 million, a savings of $3.7 million to your company.
This training could easily cost you $50,000, but we’re not charging $50,000. Or $20,000. Or $10,000. Or even $5,000.
As a token of appreciation for you getting in on the inaugural opening of the ICES™ Online Certification Program, you can get this valuable certification and training experience at the one-time cost of only $1,995.
Yes, that’s less than 0.1% of the savings from transforming your company’s employee engagement in that example we gave.

Evoloshen: Bringing Joy to the workplace with a new business model through innovation with corporate training and cultural hacking.
While many look at global problems like economic growth, workforce effectiveness, employee turnover, chronic skills gaps,…and focus their time and energy fixing the problem, we take a different approach. How? By embodying the philosophy of the great scientist and awesome futurist, Buckminster Fuller who once said: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
And that’s exactly what we’re doing—helping our clients to create an engaging and purposeful business culture where employees are thriving.
We work with our client companies to build new engaging models that make today’s problematic models obsolete, and at the heart of our approach is “culture hacking.” Thus, “culture hacking” is the art of involving people and education in smart effective ways to rapidly “recode” and advance culture, altering in the process the behaviors of everyday individuals to make them adopt smarter practices that elevate their lives.
