A lot of conversation has taken place surrounding employee engagement as a way of retaining top talent. Here are some signs of a disengaged employee every manager should look for:
- The employee that was formerly an evangelist for your organization’s products and services now evangelizes for your competition.
- An employee who had enjoyed consuming information about the company’s products and services is now bored of the topic and can’t be bothered to learn more.
- A formerly conscientious employee no longer goes out of their way to welcome new employees or volunteers to help out.
- The employee stops attending or participating in company activities and functions.
- Less outside the box thinking or alternative ideas come from the employee than they used to.
- A normally competitive employee loses their drive to compete.
- The employee is not as focused on bottom line results as they had been.
If at least three of these signs are prevalent, perhaps it’s more than a coincidence. The manager should step in to address and fix them.
