SOLUTIONS TO EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Employee engagement reflects the extent to which employee beliefs and behaviors reflect the values and vision of an organization. Culture is all about relationships. As a leader you will only find effectiveness if you can relate to those you are leading and helping to move forward. The better you become at understanding people, the more proficient you will become at shaping culture.
PEOPLE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Culture only happens where there are people, it is the product of those people relating to each other. Shaping culture is about valuing and loving people, about wanting what is best for those people. It is about using what you know, and the influence you have attained through relationships to create environments in which those people can thrive. It is about working together to win!
Aside from the cost issue, the entire ethos of an organization can transform when engagement comes into the mix. Out go silos, personal benefit and job worth, in comes positive can-do attitude, loyalty, and innovation. Creating competitive advantage results from getting the best out of employees, building strong connections with customers and competing effectively.
MEASURING EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Employee engagement is measured using a range of subjective and non-subjective methods to get a complete picture and identify what is currently working well and what needs to be changed or improved. These may include the use of a staff satisfaction diagnostic tool, online surveys, focus groups, and interviews. Culture sits as the foundation upon which all organizations grow.
WHAT A NEW CULTURE WILL BRING TO YOUR ORGANIZATION
Culture is the vibe and feel of an establishment. It is the giver of your first impressions and is derived from the habits of a society or community of people. It impacts and determines your interactions. It is the informant of how you feel and the revelation of values at work. Culture is an organization's subconscious.
