Get Insights on Engaging and Revitalizing Apathetic Employees at Your Workplace


Do you have talented people on your team who are apathetic, but you tolerate them because they do good work? Do some employees imply that they couldn’t care less whether they leave or stay? To maintain a competitive advantage in today’s fast-paced world, organizations need to address apathy and engage all of their employees. Is it really possible to convert apathetic employees? The answer is “yes,” but it takes time and know-how.

Apathetic employees are a wildcard in every employment environment, but they are not necessarily lost causes. Your success as a leader depends to a great degree upon the performance of your employees and how they feel about the organization, their jobs, and their managers. Although hope is not a strategy, it’s often considered an underlying factor in building a highly engaged workplace.

Employee apathy is the leading cause of below average results in today’s workplaces. The negative impact on the bottom line can be huge! Recognize the link between engaging your employees and keeping them for the long haul.

Focus on creating an engagement-focused culture that brings purpose and meaning to your employees’ lives. They want to believe that they’re working in a great organization, for a great leader, not a dead-end job and a lousy boss. Now let’s make it happen!

This session by expert speaker Carol Hacker is about revitalizing apathetic personnel. An individualized approach to communication, career development, and management is the key to harnessing employees’ energy and commitment. You’ll walk away from this session with practical tips for revitalizing disengaged employees. You will get the know-how and dozens of great tips for dealing with employee apathy that you can put to use immediately and share with colleagues and members of your team.
