Are you on that wheel and can’t get off? Are your staff on that wheel and are too worried to step up and say they want to get off. Staff sickness costs the economy billions of pounds each year, and smaller companies suffer considerably when staff take time off. The reasons behind staff sickness is often morale, when incentive to perform has been forgotten the company picks up the bill.
Busy managers are sometimes too caught up in trying to cover lost working hours and using the manpower of other workers who are there at the time. The resulting resentment within the workforce can be difficult to identify, few workers would put themselves in a position where it would appear they have stepped out of the team or do not want to cover the work of an absent colleague. Once, maybe, but several times is known to have a knock on effect of poor or low level working practice and commitment. Low morale stretches loyalty and the remaining employees can become ignored and taken for granted. If you ask your staff if they are happy, would they in the majority of situations, say yes, in independent surveys employees who remain anonymous are frequently found to say no.
So what happens to disillusioned workers, they either leave, they reduce their commitment by providing the minimum as opposed to the maximum, they search for alternative employment, they voice their unhappiness to other workers or family members, and they are now on the wheel.
