Signs that your employees are becoming disengaged

Keeping your employees engaged is critical to your company’s success. Not only is it directly linked to productivity, but you’ll be able to cultivate a better work culture when your employees are engaged with their work. 

If you want to make sure you don’t end up with a disengaged team, look out for some of the following signs of disengagement: 

  •     Increased complaints or sarcastic/dry humor about disliking position. 
  •     Increased tardiness both in attendance and work performance. 
  •     Use of technology for non-work purposes.

Instead of criticizing the behavior, try to approach it from another perspective.

Tell the employee you notice they seem distracted, and you wanted to see if there was anything you could do to be supportive. You don’t need to pry, just let them know you support them and watch their demeanor change to one that wants to reciprocate that energy.
