Employee Engagement
Lessons from the Mouse House

Having highly engaged employees moves an organization from good to great—conversely, diminished engagement reduces productivity and hinders an organization’s ability to reach minimum goals necessary for success in themousehouse1 marketplace.  

According to Gallup, Inc.’s State of the American Workplace: 2010-2012 report, 70% of America’s workforce is either not engaged (52%) or actively disengaged (18%) - leaving the bulk of productivity, necessary for corporate growth, to be done by 30% of the workforce.

Making employee engagement a part of an organization’s overall strategy is as important as the emphasis placed on growth and profit. This course will help organizational leaders ensure that their employees are actively engaged in their work.

Three Types of Employees
Engaged Employees work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.
Disengaged Employees are essentially “checked-out.” They’re sleepwalking through their workday, putting time—but not energy or passion—into their work.
Actively Disengaged Employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day these workers undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish.
