When we file our taxes at 34 Strong, we’re listed under the “organizational consulting” professional service section. While this may be accurate enough for the IRS, we want you to know that our clients get a lot more than organizational consulting when they work with us.
We build strengths-based organizations.
When organizations embrace a culture of strengths they report better company culture, more communication, happier employees and greater productivity.
And we’re not here to throw a bunch of adjectives at you—Gallup® researchers completed an extensive study of companies that implemented strengths-based management practices. This study included 49,495 business units with 1.2 million employees across 22 organizations in seven industries and 45 countries.
Here are the results of increasing employee engagement at work:
- 14-29% increased profit
- 3-7% higher customer metrics
- 23-59% fewer safety incidents
- 10-19% increased sales
- 6-72% lower attrition
There’s really no argument against those numbers, but the question is:
How do you build a culture of strengths, an organization where every employee is engaged daily with tasks they excel at, in your workplace?
Taking the Clifton StrengthsFinder™ is a great start—organizations that take their employees through the assessment process and make some basic changes report a 7% increase in employee engagement. Not bad!
But when those same companies build on top of the assessment with a cohesive strategy for creating and sustaining a strengths-based culture, their employee engagement shoots up to 23%.
What is a “cohesive strategy” for creating and sustaining a strengths-based culture? We’re glad you asked!
