Gallup reported today that 71% of Americans are disengaged at work.

As an HPT practitioner, it’s difficult to pinpoint a distinct cause for a national issue. Despite the overall trend, it comes down to individual issues at each organization. Disengagement can be caused by a business’s culture, how it handles employee motivation, career advancement, etc. But, as Gallup reports, disengagement creates problems for organizations that gravely affect the bottom line. In sum? If your employees aren’t engaged, you need to bring in an expert. Slapping a one-size-fits-all solution certainly won’t work.
