5 Things that Ruin Employee Engagement


Posted by Insightlink on 02/26/14

Employee surveys tell you everything that is going well and not so well within an organization. They are crucial to helping identify issues that affect employee engagement. However, they do not normally explain how the employees became disengaged in the first place. Below are five things that could cause disengagement in most employees:

Not enough training, or problems with training. Most employees expect to be trained for their job. Just telling them what to do is not enough. Continuous training with the ability to expand their knowledge helps to keep employees engaged in their job.

Overpaying employees for engagement. If you throw money at employees, it’s only going to temporarily fix engagement. At first, employees will be happy with the extra pay, but in the end the problems in the organization are still there. Engagement cannot be bought; it must be earned.

Poor management skills. When the wrong person becomes manager, nothing else can fix the impact that the employees feel. This causes disengagement. In fact, most employees leave jobs due to management, not pay or benefits.

Inability of a company to share information spreads distrust. Employees feel like they cannot trust their company when information that can help them do their jobs better is not shared. This information includes how the company is doing, overall, and the annual outlooks.

Bad hiring practices. Hiring people who are not right for the job will eventually weigh heavily on a company. Employees who feel they do not fit in or do not have the right skills for the job are generally disengaged.
