Employee Disengagement and the Problem of Workplace Complacency | The Engage Blog

Employee Disengagement and the Problem of Workplace Complacency | The Engage Blog | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Employee disengagement is a huge concern for businesses in 2019. Only 21% of the workforce is very engaged, yet most employees plan to stick around.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

This article should be raising the hairs on the back of your neck about your workforce - what action steps are you going to take to engage the 80 percent who are just getting by doing the minimum necessary so you'll tolerate them without firing?

 

Just did a couple of workshops on this subject with 2 groups of CEOs and Key Executives in Honolulu - little bit of a shock over the need to engage folks and actively retain people. Are you ready to start losing some of your best talent? The issue is not as much about finding people now as it is about keeping people.

Do you think it's an intuitive ability or one that can be coached and trained?

 

Do you measure empathy - caring - listening when evaluating managers. Why do we make the false assumption that if you carry a manager title, you must obviously have these traits?

Seth Meyers gives LinkedIn his advice on retaining employees — | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
The comedian shared his tips on "Hello Monday," a new LinkedIn podcast.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Seth Meyers breaks the mold holding people in a traditional box around their job - he actually encourages and supports side gigs and opportunities to spread their wings and realize their dreams while still working for him.

 

Are we moving in this direction with the younger generation?

 

Are we stuck in a mindset about careers and jobs based on 1970s assumptions?

 

Can supporting employees taking on other assignments outside of their job with you only work in creative fields - or can it be broader across more traditional disciplines like HR or finance?

 

I'd love to hear examples of bosses and companies that are supportive of helping their employees achieve their dreams.
