Grandpa don’t you love me?

Five year old girl to grandpa, “Grandpa don’t you love me?”

Grandpa, “of course I do sweetie.”

Child, “then why don’t you pay attention to me?”

This exchange would pull at the heartstrings of even the crustiest old fart.

A five year old child notices many things and is not afraid to say what is on their mind.

Grandpa’s can get focused on sports, carpentry, the price of gas or the news.  If they are retired it seems crazy that these things would be more important to them than a bright eyed and adoring grandchild.

Yet we all know this happens.

Research into employee engagement tells us unquestionably that one of the most important factors in employee engagement is whether an employee believes someone cares about them at work.

If grandpa, with all his years of experience, can ignore his granddaughter who is over for just a few hours and spend the whole time watching the football game, then you, with all your duties and responsibilities can be forgiven for not seeming to care about your team member.

Do you want be forgiven or do you want to make the place you work into something special?
