Those employees within an organisation who are committed to the organisation and driven to moving the organisation forward.
- Not Engaged / Disengaged Employees
Those employees, who are present at work and put in the hours, however are not passionate about their job and aren’t utilising their full potential.
- Actively disengaged Employees
Those employees that don’t have an emotional commitment to work and often distract co-workers while they try and complete tasks. This can be due to their job not being suitable or not aligning with their skill set. They are often looking for employment elsewhere.
