Are Your Employees Among the One-Fifth That Undermine Their Employers?

A recent poll released by Gallup, (the State of the American Workplace: Employee Engagement Insights for U.S. Business Leaders), has discovered that more than half of the U.S. workforce is dissatisfied with either their job or their managers. The poll further indicates that up to 20% of these employees are not only unhappy, but are also actively undermining the companies they work for by lowering the morale of their colleagues and draining organization resources.  biometric time clock to stop time theft

The Cost of Actively Disengaged Employees

According to the poll figures, Gallup interviewed more than 150,000 full and part-time employees over the course of the last year. The end result concluded that 18% (nearly one-fifth) of U.S. employees could be distinguished as “actively disengaged.” The showcasing of “disengagement” can be found in various ways such as frequent sick-leaves, wasting management’s time, spreading unhappiness to co-workers, being unproductive and sabotaging one’s work environment.

“Actively disengaged employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish,” the report concludes (http://media2.kjrh.com/html/pdfs/unhappyemployees_gallup.pdf), p. 21). Gallup estimated that U.S. businesses are suffering a staggering loss each year ranging from $450 billion to $550 billion in terms of lost productivity – all as a result of unhappy employees.

The woes of U.S. employers are not just limited to unhappy workers. They also face another menace in the form of time theft. An earlier survey by Harris Interactive concluded that more than 5% of U.S. workers actually admitted to falsifying their time records. An even bigger percentage of the employees polled admitted to punching in for absent buddies. The lost productivity figures as a direct result of time theft practices were reported around $450 billion annually. It is anybody’s guess that among the list of activities used by employees to undermine their employers, time theft is bound to be at the top.

biometric time and attendanceEmployers can deal with this particular problem following just a few easy steps. First, implement a biometric time clock system to prevent time theft and guarantee that your employees are getting paid strictly for the hours they have worked. A second way to deal with the issue is to address unhappy employees and try to boost their morale. This can be achieved by hiring better managers, implementing HR policies that encourage employees to be engaged, asking employees what you can do for them to improve work environments, and making sure they know you consider their contribution as being important to your organization.

With this two-fold strategy, your business can avoid both employee disengagement and time theft. Learn more about biometric time and attendance systems by visiting uAttend.com.
