The dilemma of the bored employee

Primary tabs

Why is it that your employees who start out excited about
their jobs lose interest so quickly? Is it a problem with their age, a cultural
phenomena

or just fate? Can their experience be enriched by savvy
managers?

The dilemma begins with most leaders who compare employees
to cars and their jobs to long-term parking spots. In other words, all they
need to do is slot people into positions and leave them. From that point on,
the person is expected to perform the role faithfully and occupy the position
indefinitely.

Unfortunately, that‘s not how things work. As you may know,
there are a startling number of staff who merely go through the motions: “It’s
just a job.” Long gone are the challenges which kept them up at night. All
that’s left is a routine they can now do without thinking.
