“The way we gather matters. Why? Because of what can happen when people come together, exchange information, inspire one another, test out new ways of being together. And yet most of us spend very little time thinking about the actual ways in which we gather … We spend much of that time in uninspiring, underwhelming moments that fail to capture us, change us in any way, or connect us to one another."
- Priya Parker, The Art of Gathering
Building an engaged, online community is not a one size fits all proposition. The platform you use, the type of interaction you enable, and the topics you focus on will all be unique to your business goals and objectives. However, by understanding some of the principles that go into building a successful online community - from harnessing the power of brand enthusiasts to engaging authentic communities at scale- you can set yourself up for success.
This is why we've collaborated with Mighty Capital to create the Countable Community 3.0 playbook. Born out of a series of Mighty Capital Podcast episodes featuring different members of our team, this playbook for building engaged and empowered communities takes all the years of knowledge and insights our team has about community building and distills them into digestible, actionable sections. Featuring Jaime Peters, VP of Client Success and Operations, Fmr Tesla Sr Program Manager William Masterson, and VP of Product Emily Bell among others.
The Business Case for Employee Wellbeing Heading into 2023
Employee engagement, measured by how much an individual feels dedicated and invested in their job and to their organization's goals, has plummeted since 2019. In 2020, the world’s workers reported stress at work had reached an all-time high, at over 44% – a data point which rose even higher in 2021 and 2022. Negative emotions at work (anger, sadness, etc) continue to surge. View that through the lens of ROI, and Gallup estimates that low engagement has cost the global economy US$7.8 trillion.
The bottom line? When employees have an improved sense of wellbeing, they work better, are more creative, stay longer, and take fewer sick days. When their wellbeing is neglected, the opposite is true, resulting in poorer quality of work, missed deadlines, and burnout. The ill effects are carried beyond the office as well. Employees with higher levels of burnout report difficulty balancing family responsibilities and a 23% increase in emergency room visits. Across the globe organizations face a stark challenge–only 9% of employees fall into the thriving and engaged category. The rest, according to studies, are 61% more likely to suffer from burnout.
So, how can your organization foster wellness among employees? Check out our newest blog post for some tips.
