A recent gallup poll discovered some amazing statistics about workers in Australia, which is reflected around the world. 4 out of 5 of people haven’t matched their talent to their job. This has a flow on effect for productivity, as well as worker satisfaction, which leads to increased cost to hire new staff.
When your workers aren't engaged, it affects productivity and profits.

The tool also helped in coaching the National Sales Manager, who was formerly promoted from a product specialist background, to be more effective in driving sales results through the team.
