The statistics on workforce engagement are shocking.
According to research, only 29 percent of employees are motivated and energized. What, then, is happening to the other two-thirds of people working in organizations?
This is an even worse scenario than the old joke in which a manager is asked how many people work in his company and he responds, “About half of them.”
What is causing all these people to lose their enthusiasm and commitment? Almost everyone joins an organization with engagement. What is it that extinguishes that initial engagement after the first years of working in an organization?
Here are some possible causes:
– Little or no feedback or guidance from those in charge
– Lack of opportunity to discuss problems
– Lack of opportunity to provide ideas and input
– Lack of resources to solve problems or to do a job well
– Little or no rewards or recognition
– Little opportunity to develop one’s potential
– Pressure to perform and achieve more with less
– Lack of opportunity to interact socially
– Interpersonal conflicts left unresolved
– Little joy or humor except for office gossip and cynicism
– Stress in balancing work and home responsibilities, leading to energy
