We learned a long time ago that you have three types of employees:
§ Engaged Employees: The engaged employees are those who work with full passion and are emotionally attached to the organization. They are innovative and provide new ideas and consistent performance to move the organization forward. They personalize the company's goals and objectives, and always work above and beyond their job requirements for the betterment of the organization.
§ Not Engaged Employees: Such employees do put in their time, but not passion and energy into their work. These are the ones who do only what is asked of them. These employees can hold either a negative or positive attitude towards the organization. They consider their job as a paycheck, nothing more.
§ Actively Disengaged Employees: These employees are unhappy, resentful, and spread negativity within the organization. However, despite doing less than the minimum, these employees last longer in the firm by removing employees whom they perceive will attain higher positions soon.
It's those actively disengaged that have to cause problems EVERY SINGLE TIME! Thanks for being one of the engaged, Carl! Not everyone gets it.
