Avoid Employee Disengagement in 2011 - Stephan MR Covey
Research by the Gallup organization estimates that only 28 percent of U.S. employees are engaged, and in many other countries, the figure is even lower. Employees who “quit and stay” are not giving their talents, creativity, energy, or passion to their jobs and are exacting an immeasurable tax on the organization.
There are many reasons for disengagement, but one of the greatest is a lack of feeling trusted. Distrust followed by disengagement is a self-perpetuating cycle that cripples any organization and can even grind it to a halt.
