Disengaged employees. We all know who they are, or even worse, maybe some of us know that we are the ones who deserve this dreadful title. Time and time again companies watch as their workers fade from bright shining new hires to dull office zombies. What gives?

However, it seems many of them are quick to lose that initial spark they had when you first welcomed them aboard. Coffee carts, company events, and countless other perks don’t seem to be helping to boost employee motivation either, so what is the solution here?
