The Limeade platform unifies employee well-being, engagement, and inclusion solutions with industry-leading communications capabilities
Fremont, CA: Employee experience software company, Limeade released findings from its latest study, "2020 employee Care Report: The Hidden Causes of Employee Turnover." The study discovers the insights on how a lack of employee care manifests in the workplace, unpacks key issues fueling unwanted turnover, and leverages new data to make recommendations to improve corporate efforts to retain top talent.
One thousand full-time U.S. workers were surveyed to uncover the state of care in the workplace. The findings included
Employees don't feel their employer cares for them as individuals
• Only 31 percent of employees strongly agree that their employers care about them as individuals
• 47 percent of employees who have disclosed a mental health issue in the workplace has experienced a negative consequence by doing so
• 44 percent of burned-out employees constantly or often resent their employer
• Nearly half (48percent) of employees don't believe their employers' Diversity, and Inclusion efforts are genuine
And they are quitting because of it
• 1 in 3 employees have left a job because they didn't feel their employer cared about them as a person
• 38 percent of employees have been asked by a colleague to leave a job with them
• 25 percent of employees left a job because they were not treated with dignity by company leaders
"Employers are beginning to believe in the business value of caring for their people as human beings, but struggle to understand how this manifests on a daily basis," said Dr. Laura Hamill, Limeade Chief People Officer and Chief Science Officer of the Limeade Institute. "The 2020 Employee Care Report benchmarks the state of employee care and underscores the need to make improvements immediately. By understanding what care does and doesn't look like, employers can begin to improve recruitment, retention, and business results through an increased dedication to organizational care."
The Limeade Institute developed a framework to help organizations demonstrate care to their employees to help employers take action. These aspects of care can be introduced at scale to employees with Limeade Well-Being, Engagement, and Inclusion solutions and is available as an integrated platform or individual solutions.
