Have your staff retired long before they have left?



Gallup has found that a whopping 17.2 p.c of Australia’s workforce is actively disengaged staying more for what they can get rather than for what they can give – such as salary, comfort, relationships. And while the cost of keeping someone who just stays in the role till they retire can cost their organisation $3,400 for every $10,00 of salary, its no wonder many workplaces feel like the air has been sucked out of them. With staff who have seemingly retired but still turn up to work each day, seems like it may be time to forgo the three religious principles of Faith, Hope and Charity and recognise that having faith staff will not make them more engaged, hope won’t make them active and being a charity is not a business proposition.

If your staff are staying in the job till they retire just to pass the time then consider the cost of their complacency on the bottom line. If you need them to engage, it’s time you need us to support you. Call us on 03 9821 0610.
