ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Employees who are disengaged from their jobs cost companies over $260 billion a year according to Terri Kabachnick, an international HR expert. Some of this lost productivity from employees is often the employer’s fault. According to Kabachnick, 92% of companies do not identify and deal with poor performers. She adds that 38% of employees are actively disengaged from their jobs and another 32% are not as productive as they could be. Many employees cite frustration because of lack of resources to do their job correctly and others have no sense of how their jobs benefit others in the organization-they lack purpose. Kabachnick says the best thing employers can do to ensure productivity is to match people with positions. To do this employers should look at more than just skill and expertise-they need to understand what their employees value, she said. For example, creative people will fail in structured positions that don’t provide outlets for their passion. She told the true story of a renowned brain surgeon in San Francisco who one day walked out on his job and his family. He went on to become a musician, a passion he had since a child, but got caught up in parental expectations to be a doctor.
