Learn How You Can Recognize the Symptoms of Disengaged Employees and How You Must Respond


Reengaging the disengaged employee is a challenge and by the time you see the problem it may be too late to salvage the employee. Reengaging disengaged employees is different from creating an engaged workforce.

Consider an example: In the beginning, Justin was a good employee. However, lately, he has been lacking the drive and dedication that he once had. Now, his performance and quality have dropped, and his attitude is sour. As his supervisor, you have been thinking that he either needs to step up to the plate or move on to something different. The company has invested a lot in Justin and doesn’t want to lose him. However, his behavior is no longer acceptable. What do you do?

In this case, the employee was engaged and now, he has somehow fallen off the rails. When it spirals out of control, either the employee resigns or he is terminated. In either case, nobody wins. One thing is clear, corrective action isn’t usually the answer. It, usually, just serves to further alienate the employee.

Join this session where HR consultant Wes Pruett will explore the reasons why employees become disengaged and will discuss the options employers have for turning the situation around. Wes will look at the symptoms of disengagement, the potential causes, and possible employer responses to the situation so that you are more confident in dealing with your disengaged employees.
