The High Cost of Unengaged Employees

 In Employee Retention, Leadership
According to Gallop, a whopping 34 percent of employees are involved, enthusiastic, and committed to their work and workplace. That means—look to your left, now look to your right—only one employee in three actually gives a rip about their job and your company. In essence, that one engaged employee is carrying two other people.
To make matters worse, one in eight employees are disengaged. This means they are actively working against the company and its success. No wonder it is so difficult to move the needle!


Seven trillion dollars. That’s the figure Gallop estimates is lost each year due to a lack of employee engagement. What a tragedy. What a waste of talent. No one dreams of clocking 40 hours a week, month after month, year after year, in a dead-end job that they don’t enjoy. Employees want to be engaged in meaningful work that makes a difference.
At the end of the day, a lack of employee engagement is primarily a leadership issue, not an employee issue. This may be hard to swallow, but if your employees are not engaged, it’s probably your fault. The good news is that you can do something about it.
