The employee becomes less communicative: They may be less likely to initiate conversations or respond promptly to messages. They may also be less forthcoming with information or less willing to share their thoughts and ideas.
The employee becomes more guarded: They may be more cautious in their communication, choosing their words more carefully or becoming more reserved in their interactions with colleagues.
The employee becomes more critical: They may start to express more negative opinions or be more critical of company policies or practices.
Decreased engagement can manifest in several ways in day-to-day activities,
