Where’s the Passion? Employee Engagement and Money Wasted

Since the beginning of the year, I haven’t been fully engaged at work as I am beginning to see the advantages of owning your own business. That got me thinking more about passion and entrepreneurship. In the meantime, I found this great infographic that examines passion in the workplace, employee engagement, and how it affects the bottom line.

Are you fully engaged in your work? Is it time for a new job?

    For me it’s just time for a job–or least some income. When I’m working for someone else I’d say that most of the time I’m never fully engaged if the job isn’t fulfilling dreams. Being in business for oneself can fulfill dreams, but it can also have its own nightmares.

    Tossing It Out

  2. I agree that meetings are often a waste of time. My company has several Monday morning meetings at which my attendance is required. I am happy to go to a meeting to make sure I get the resources I need to accomplish my work, but much of the time is spent listening to other people’s progress reports and various day-to-day things, like keeping the fridge clean. I also have a few clients that are very meeting happy. They want me to dial into their meetings multiple times a week to keep them up-to-date on progress. I don’t mind doing progress reports, but having to listen to their planning for an hour, where I only need a couple minutes to report progress is annoying. I have told them their contract is more costly than it needed to be due to their “excessive” meeting requirements.

      Wow way to keep them honest Bryce! Unproductive meetings are when the members are more into speaking and hearing themselves flex their corporate muscles in the room.

    There’s a lot of inefficiencies in the workplace for sure. I attend a lot of meetings and know how time can get wasted, especially with external meetings.

      Thanks for sharing Sydney! I wonder if this is just part of the workplace. If you think about it, as long as there are inefficient people at work, there will always be inefficient meetings.
