Calculating the cost of employee disengagement


After more than two years of relentless change, many workers are feeling burnt out, underappreciated and undervalued. This is especially the case in sectors that rely on shift-driven, roster-based (or “deskless”) workers. Our eBook asks: How much is employee disengagement costing your business and how can the situation be improved?

How much does disengagement cost your business?

The answer will depend on how you assess the impact of disengagement. Is it through lost productivity? Perhaps it’s through absenteeism or tardiness? Perhaps there are more serious measures such as workplace safety or customer service feedback? Our eBook details the true cost of disengagement.

Can employee disengagement be fixed?

There is no silver bullet that will magically improve engagement – there are too many elements to consider, and what engages one person may not engage another. However, there are some underlying foundational blocks that, if prioritised, can improve engagement. Our eBook outlines these fundamentals, which include providing a compelling mission, providing career development and career paths, and ensuring managers have the skills required to keep people engaged.

How can technology help?

It’s time to bring deskless workers up to a similar level of digital sophistication as their deskbound colleagues. Technology can ultimately help employers deliver a more appealing employee experience by providing more effective channels for communication and collaboration. It can also help to optimise rostering and scheduling, gauge employee sentiment, and – for business leaders – provide richer, more detailed analytics.
