Is Your Organization Bleeding Internally

For years, I have said that disengaged employees are the biggest cost factor to an organization. When you are bleeding externally, you see blood. Internal bleeding is much harder to diagnose because you cannot see the effects as easily, but it can be deadly.

A recent Gallup workplace study found in 2012, only 30% of U.S. workers were “engaged.” This means 70% of workers are not engaged in their work.

It is estimated that lack of employee engagement is costing between $450 billion to $550 billion each year in lost productivity.

Here are 5 suggestions to stop the bleeding in your organization:

  1. Hire the right people.

  2. Make expectations clear.

  3. Empower others to do their job.

  4. Let employees play to their strengths.

  5. Show appreciation and value team members.
