Seven reasons for employee demotivation | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Employee engagement and motivation is essential in managing a productive and efficient workplace.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Are you unconsciously demotivating your employees - scary stats out there - look at Gallup's research that indicates 50-70 percent of your workforce is disengaged - they DO NOT care they work for you. They are trying to get by doing the absolute minimum necessary so you will continue to keep them on the payroll. Disengagement leads to demotivation. What are you doing to re-energize your workforce and allowing your employees to self-motivate?

Past performance does not guarantee future success. That is a rule of thumb that most hiring managers should have when interviewing talent. Everyone wants to hire and retain top talent, but how do you determine what top talent is?
Barry Deutsch's insight:

I have to agree with the author in this article on measuring talent = the number one trait is high self-motivation. We could use lots of different words to describe what that means - including drive, initiative, proactivity, passion, focus on self-improvement, anticipatory behavior, striving to constantly get better.

 

Measuring these elements are easy. The best have an abundance of them = and can share specific examples to illustrate them. The weak ones will struggle to come up with anything of substance around self-motivation with specific examples.

 

There are many factors that go into measuring someone's ability to achieve your expectations - the issue of self-motivation is number 1.
