The crisis becomes zombies to the best employees

As it stands out from the consultant emerges, “grab the Chair” does not always mean more productivity. The crisis brings with it a new tribe, called employed zombies, those who are physically in his job, but with his professional view and his talent, in another site have job, today, is a luxury. There is no doubt about that. There are many managers every day, them reminiscent to their employees how difficult that are the market and the luck to have a post of employment and that, at least, not lower them salary. This “emotional blackmail” can lead to that many of those employees who are pillars in the productivity in the enterprise are transformed into what has come to be called “the zombie employee”. I.e., that employee that is present in their jobs but emotionally absent.

To detect it ideally analyze their attitude, consider if there is something that has changed in the performance of its work in the near past and to approach him, and, above all to listen to their needs. Once detected, it is time to take action and establish a model of intervention “lidercoach” generate commitment and identification with the objectives of the company that get. “In these cases in primary to create new methods influencing the understanding of the motivations and abilities of the worker”.
