INTRODUCTION

Is your organization being affected by one or more of these problems?

  • whining, dissatisfied, de-motivated and disenchanted staff
  • job-hopping employees and low retention
  • disappearing (or disappeared) loyalty
  • stressed or burnt-out workers
  • increase in suspicious/questionable medical leave


Many organizations are suffering from widespread dissatisfaction in a workforce where those who can get up and leave do so while the mediocre remain.

Those who are in first-line or middle management are key – the talented employee may join a company because of its charismatic leaders, its generous benefits and its worldwide training programmes but how long that employee stays and how productive he is depends on the immediate superior.
