Motivate your "Actively Disengaged" Employees

I recently read an article in About.com titled "Two Musts For Employee Motivation" written by Susan M.Heathfield. The article is based on an attention-getting Gallup Poll about disengaged employees which was highlighted in a recent Wall Street Journal. Here is the paragraph.

Gallup found 19 percent of 1,000 people interviewed "actively disengaged" at work. These workers complain that they don't have the tools they need to do their jobs. They don't know what is expected of them. Their bosses don't listen to them. Based on these interviews and survey data from its consulting practice, Gallup says actively disengaged workers cost employers $292 billion to $355 billion a year. Furthermore, Gallup concluded that disengaged workers miss more days of work and are less loyal to employers.

Gallup polls helps us realize the importance of employee motivation in organizations today. We will discuss more on motivation in the forthcoming posts.
