How to Engage a Disengaged Employee

Nothing is more frustrating than when an employee quits and a team member tells you they could sense the employee was about to leave. You probably ask yourself if they could have been saved. 

There is typically a phase of disengagement before an employee quits. In today’s tight labor market, it’s more important than ever to quickly identify that stage, get to the root of the cause, and, ultimately, develop a resolution. 

Disengagement Does Not Equal Under Performance 

A disengaged team member is not necessarily an underperformer, though their performance slipping can be an indicator. Often, they are employees who were once advocates for the company. You may notice they no longer like or share company social media posts. They start using vacation days.
