Gallup Organization talks about the cost to business of disengaged employees that is that employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged co-workers accomplish. Actively disengaged employees made up 18% of the Australian Workforce in 2006 costing some $AU32.7 billion. (We are the second least engaged after the French- ouch that hurts.)
- But this quote sums it up from a famous ‘business commentator’:
“If Adults don’t like their jobs they don’t go on strike, they just go in every day and do it really half-assed.”
You never know where you’re going to find the gold.
