Helping stressed Employees

Consequences of having unsatisfied Employees

Did you Know?

Some factors that are influenced through the satisfaction and engagement of your employees are more obvious than others. Here, we give you a look into some influenceable factors and the side effects of dissatisfaction in the workplace that you probably did not expect:

  • Unsatisfied employees have less intercourse than people who are satisfied and motivated, which is greatly influenced by listlessness stemming from work.
  • 79% of employees name the absence of appreciation as the main reason for quitting.
  • The cost of replacing an employee, depending on his or her level, can be up to 400% of the employee’s yearly salary.
  • People who are dissatisfied with their position weigh on average 2.5 kg more than those who are satisfied with their jobs, as stress increases appetite.
  • Unsatisfied employees produce an incomprehensible amount of negative oral propaganda which not only rapidly spreads throughout the employee’s immediate surroundings, but also across public social networks.
  • Employees want to have a voice and be heard. Listening can be so simple. The release of concerns, anger and desires is simply solved by the implementation of employee surveys.
  • 82% of the time, company loyalty is achieved by offering flexible work hours.
  • Non-engaged and unsatisfied employees leave a company at a rate of 54% for a job that only offers a <20% higher salary, whereas only 37% of engaged employees take this step.
  • People who are unhappy with their management have double the probability of falling victim to a stroke or heart attack.

As you can see, employee engagement comprises a wide spectrum of factors that can be negatively influenced if employees are demotivated, unproductive and unsatisfied with their jobs. The lack of an investment in employees can have a much wider influence on personal factors than simply the loss of success and profit. As an employeer, one should really consider which path one takes to increasing profits because the simplest way has been scientifically proven to be the investment in employees.
