Why Your Employees Aren’t Engaged
No, it’s not all leadership’s fault; however, as leaders, knowing WHY they are disengaged and HOW to help them shift to highly engaged is your responsibility.
Disengagement, at best, leads to employees leaving your organization. Why do we say “at best”? Because despite the high costs associated with turnover, the costs associated with disengaged employees remaining in the organization are astronomical. These costs include lack of productivity and innovation, giving your competitors an advantage – and that cost could be catastrophic.
Being more fully engaged means employees’ needs are met, which allows them to meet (and often exceed) the needs of the organization. Engaged employees provide the “extra” effort organizations and leaders value, and keeps the advantage where it belongs. With you.
