Why conduct Employee Engagement Surveys?
Deloitte surveys highlight that over 66% of employees are not actively engaged.
Low employment engagement is one of the major challenges facing organizations.
Another issue is the challenge of maintaining a Values-based culture.
Organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to hold true to the values and purpose that were the pillars on which the founders built the entity. Similarly, start-ups recognize that communicating their values, vision and mission is more challenging than it appears on the surface.
When we reduce performance to its core essence it relies heavily on the behaviour of individuals ??? alone or in concert with others.
Improving performance then is a function of defining and encouraging the behaviours that add value. Most organizations fail to capture those behaviours in readily relatable terms. They are also challenged to make them available in an easily accessible format across the organization.
This frustrates efforts to have their vision, values, mission, goals and strategy communicated and adopted by their employees.
The performance issue cannot be readily separated from the challenge of identifying and satisfying the disparate needs of employees.
Here is a sample of expressed needs:
???I have gotten so many responses from persons craving for recognition more than reward.???
???Employees value relationship with their superiors, how they are treated will make them go the extra mile.???
?????Employees want to feel connected, respected, valued and listened to, one on one, hold them accountable but also value them.???
???The other thing that is important to them is flexibility – working from home, flexible hours, greater use of technology.???
???Creating change starts with the area of influence ??? me.???
???Employees tend to stay when they feel supported and connected to leadership.???
???Simple things like saying good morning have been shown to create an environment where employees feel valued and improve morale.???
???I find that identifying what is important to my team and providing that, whether its empathy, recognition or empowerment or all three motivates them to perform far above our expectations. Doing this sometimes means me stepping outside my comfort zone, but it???s worth it.???
???While some persons are self-motivated, an occasional “You did an awesome job,” or “I appreciate what you did” goes a far way with employee motivation.???
The Changing Age Dynamics In The Workforce
Complaints from Managers about not being able to understand younger generation employees – notably Millennials – abound.
???Yes, these Millennials are unpredictable in their expectations and they are very bold in communicating such. Understanding them is key in keeping them fully engaged.???
???I have experienced the change in work environment where Millennials are concerned. Their attitude is predominantly work-to-rule. Not interested in overtime. Work life balance is very important to them.???
???Yes, there is a definite change. Employees are no longer prepared to make the job a priority at the expense of themselves. Work life balance is just as important. They value all the other aspects of their lives as much as the job. When this is facilitated they are actually more productive and act more empowered.???
