Quiet Quitters – They are at Your Company
After trending up in recent years, employee engagement in the U.S. has declined over the last several years. In 2020, Gallup showed 36% of employees were engaged which dropped to 34% in 2021. This pattern continued in 2022 with 32% of employees polling as engaged and 18% being actively disengaged.
The key to raising their performance level is to determine what motivates them. The other key is making sure you have employees doing the job that they are good at and truly passionate about. Right People, Right Seat is a concept explored in two books I recommend: Good to Great, by Jim Collins, and Traction by Gino Wickman. It’s amazing how many people are in jobs who don’t like what they do. Employees in that situation really can’t be blamed for being disengaged. People spend too much time at work to not enjoy what they do. Try to find a position that aligns with a person’s passions. If that’s not possible at your company, then it might be best that the employee moves to another company that aligns better with their interests.
