19 Jun How To Spot If Your People Are Disengaged
There are very few things in the world of business that are more important than having engaged people and the reasons for it go far beyond company success. According to Gallup, 54% of disengaged employees believe their work-life impacts negatively on their physical health. Engagement, therefore, plays a significant role in every aspect of your business from its bottom line to its retention because it’s to do with the wellbeing of those at the core of your company.
Lack of Initiative
When it comes to the disengaged in your company, it’s not a one size fits all solution and can pop up from anyone and anywhere from high to low performers. An excellent place to start with solving it is by creating a culture of open communication. This means acknowledging employee successes, asking for feedback and designing surveys to gather information directly from your people on how they feel, for example, what is going right, wrong, suggestions for improvement and anything in between. By providing this kind of transparency and involvement, you’re more likely to activate that sense of community needed to keep people motivated as well as engaged with each other, their work and the company.
