David Osborne Owns Profitable Personnel and is presenting this Tuesday evening. David will be talking about the importance of retaining employees.
The number of employees who are thinking of leaving their jobs is up by 23% from 2005 (1)
If you were thinking of leaving any business, how interested would you be in the businesses long term goals? The chances you would have little or no interest in the goals and aspirations of the organisation, you just want to leave. This is called disengagement.
If an employee is disengaged they refocus their thinking on where they would prefer to be and why they no longer want to work for you. The employee might still come to work on time and appear busy doing something, however research indicates that a disengaged employee is less productive and five times more likely to be involved in a safety incident.
The basic cost is $3400 for every $10,000 worth of salary you are paying the employee. (2)
That means for every disengaged employee at least one third of their salary is being wasted. Disengagement is a major cause of cash flow problems for companies and is damaging not only the potential survival of the company but also the community. An unhappy employee will take their frustrations out on their family, friends and associates. Engagement is not only a business concern it is also a community concern.
Please RSVP to this very interesting presentation.
