Employee dissatisfaction and disengagement is at all-time highs. Employee engagement is a plague because nearly all companies struggle in trying to improve it. Few do well at it. As a result, 87% of the worlds employees are disengaged. This costs the US economy 1% of the $20 trillion dollar economy, that’s at least 500 billion dollars.  This isn’t counting partially disengaged employees. Watch this employee engagement video training. It will give you seven behaviors that foster great employee involvement and morale.

Managers Cause Employee Dissatisfaction

The Plague of Employee Dissatisfaction and DisengagementManagers today have to get off their high horse to engage their teams. Especially the poor ones, which means companies have to make serious changes. This includes how they measure performance, how they promote, the culture, and the preparation and training of managers. Leadership engagement creates employee dissatisfaction or engagement.

People have to be priority one. If a manager is better at leading, the team will be more engaged. Managers and companies today have to recognize employees as partners not peons to implement their every demand. Employees are the greatest resource of a company, so why not treat them that way?  An engaged employee has higher performance, fewer days off, better customer service or sales and greater morale. What company doesn’t want that? Therefore, if you are manager, why not learn to engage your team! So, you have to study and practice to become a better leader. Review these behaviors that minimize employee dissatisfaction while improving morale.
