why

Employee engagement is our passion.

It’s why we started this business, and why we’re driven to deliver exceptional insights and service for
each and every client. Why? Far too many employees are disengaged—and at a high cost:

7-10

 

 

Seven out of 10 workers in the U.S. are
either actively disengaged or not engaged
in their work*

11B

 

 

U.S. businesses lose $11 billion annually
as a result of employee turnover**

Now some good news:

202

 

 

Companies with engaged employees outperform
those without them by up to 202%*

 

64

 

 

64% of Millennials would rather earn $40,000 a
year at a job they love than $100,000 a year at
a job they find unfulfilling***

400

 

 

Companies with a higher sense of purpose
outperformed others by 400%***

And we can help you find and engage your most passionate employees. We have a track record of transforming internal communications—with proven results.

Why And Then Communications?

“I have had the pleasure of working with Sharon for the last several months on internal communications. I met her at a Ragan conference and knew I needed to tap into her expertise and passion for communications. Her wealth of past experience reflects in the quality of her work. We developed a best-in-class communications program that used her excellent storytelling skills, tremendous creativity and data driven decisions.

Sharon is personable, strategic, smart, motivated, very passionate about communications (and data) and overall someone you want on your team for any project. Highly recommended.
