Disengaged employees are expensive. They cost your organization time and money either in workplace nonproductivity, turnover costs, training, and lost opportunities. They also suck the vital life force out of your organization and can ruin the dynamics of a once functioning and flourishing team. Happy employees or those that are engaged and active do the exact opposite. They are responsible for moving an organization forward and can be the reason a product launch or organizational change succeeds.
