Ever wonder what your employees are doing behind their computers? Are they working or playing games? Tweeting or sharing photos with friends on Facebook? What’s that costing your organization in lost productivity?
Nearly 66% of employees are dis-engaged. 55% want out. In the meantime, on your dime, they’re playing games and in some cases, sleeping as shown in this Infographic by industrial/organizational psychology research institute NBRI.
But, that’s only half the story. This infographic also shows the critical skills managers and leaders can use to engage their workforce:
