In partnership with the Association for Training & Development, this video explores just how damaging it can be to tolerate Actively Disengaged employees on your team. I should know. My former account stole $110,000 from my company over the years. But even worse, she sabotaged a deal I teed up to sell the company. (The potential buyer was an auditing firm and she was scared the transaction would unearth her secret, so she stopped at nothing to avoid being caught.) This shows how employees who don’t have the company’s best interest at heart cannot be tolerated. You must learn to look for the core characteristics of these workplace arsonists and gossip mongers, and then transition them out of your organization. All best-in-class employers actively migrate these worst workers out of their organizations. Does yours?
