The Millenia Old Hack to Employee Engagement
Religion teaches us how to fix employee engagement and retention.
If your employees don’t see a future at your company, they will not appreciate you for helping them pay their bills.
They will resent you for restricting their growth. And the more expensive their college education, the more they will resent you.
To solve this problem, you must objectively ask how religions, which cannot definitively promise their members anything concrete, are able to retain them so successfully:
Religions build community. If all your friends go to Church, chances are you’ll want to keep going.
Religions offer structure. Same time, same place, similar emotional story arc that leaves followers believing somebody cares, even if it’s not obvious every single day.
