Disengaged workers 'must be motivated to prevent loss of talent'

11 September 2012

The motivation of those workers who have become disengaged from corporate beliefs should be seen as a high priority if companies wish to keep hold of their top talent.

Research carried out by BlessingWhite has revealed that up to 35 per cent of staff are now working for their present employer simply because they are biding their time and waiting for something better to come along.

Indeed, the main reasons given for this were the unstable jobs market that is continuing to be seen and a lack of opportunities in their present role.

"Senior managers need to work with their teams to spot disengaged employees and implement tools to fix it," commented BlessingWhite marketing manager Zoe Allen.

Research published by the Boston Consulting Group in partnership with the World Federation of People Management Associations recently highlighted how firms that have HR departments that are rated as highly efficient in core practices are able to deliver revenue growth at 3.5 times the rate of their less-skilled counterparts.
