This article from Forbes highlights the fact that more employees are prone to “disengagement” than perhaps ever before. I quote from the article, ” Research claims “disengagement” (burnout, boredom, lateness, lackluster performance and workplace conflict) affects as many as 9 in 10 employees. Turning the equation around saves millions of dollars, to the tune of perhaps as much as $50 million for a company of 500 employees.” What then is the solution? I am so happy to find that many actions I advocated as a People Development professional for many years find mention in the strategies suggested by “Re-engagement” experts, Ron Hirshfeld and Irit Oz. If you flip through this blog you will find many posts that emphasize just how important it is to know your people as people to get the best out of them.
You can find more material in helping you improve the engagement levels in your organisation at the website of Oz and Hirshfeld.
