- 30% Engaged
- 54% NOT Engaged
- 16% Actively Disengaged
According to the Gallup Organization, the problem usually begins in the first six months when an average of over 60% of employees switch off. This is basically due to the perceived realization that their expectations are not going to be met.
How to avoid disengagement?
- Don't obsess over financial results (vs. creating an enviroment that enables results)
- Don't obsess over control and micromanagement (vs. trusting them to get the job done)
- Don't obsess over avoiding responsibility (vs. your responsibility to lead)
- Don't obsess over logic (vs. emotion)
