This is a good example of how a company policy that might have worked at one stage of the company's growth, not longer is appropriate. It's an example of a policy that forces outcomes based on how employees compete with each other, not one that encourages a culture of risk taking, innovation, and new ideas - which pretty much spells decline or death in the technology space. How can bright executives allow this to happen to their company? - Barry Deutsch

Employee Engagement Strategy

Employee Engagement Strategy | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Employee engagement is not a strategy, an organizational competence, a morale booster, and so much more. What is it then? (Employee Engagement Strategy - Inconceivable!


Unknown said...I'm not sure I agree with the author's claim that employee engagement cannot be a strategy. By itself, I do agree employee morale, engagement, motivation, and satisfaction must come from the employee.


However, employers can create cultures or environments that encourage or discourage satisfaction, morale, motivation, and engagement.


Employers can implement a strategy that encourages employees to take ownership, be engaged, be motivated, passionate, and satisfied with their job. Employers can also create strategies (or accomplish the same thing through neglect) that turn off their workforce.


Without strategies, tactics, goals, measurement, and plans - the engagement of the workforce becomes random and arbitrary - more a function of luck than an organized effort. - Barry Deutsch

5 Ways Young Professionals Want to Be Led - Forbes

5 Ways Young Professionals Want to Be Led - Forbes | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Recently, my organization facilitated a roundtable session with fifteen young professionals. Their main concern was how to advance in a multi-generational workplace. Several of these young professionals felt that they didn’t belong or fit in their workplace; they were uncertain about who to trust and didn’t respect the manner in which they were being led. These young professionals were eager to learn the best ways their generation could take control, influence their workplace culture and start performing at the highest levels. They wanted to get noticed, create impact and at the same time discover how to start generating more income and accelerate their advancement.

This three hour roundtable was intense, but we successfully identified what these young professionals were really looking for: how to most effectively teach their baby boomer bosses how they seek to be led. As one young professional said, “if my boss understands how I am wired to work, I will not only teach the organization’s old guard how to lead my generation, but my performance will help contribute to the organization’s success. I will make them more relevant.” This confident perspective changed the conversation and helped to define the following top five ways young professionals want to be led by their baby boomer bosses.

 

1. Empower us; don’t micromanage our talent

 

2. Sponsor us; serve as role models

 

3. Allow us to manage our own brand; don’t define us

 

4. Trust us; don’t question our intentions

 

5. Challenge us; don’t marginalize us

Engagement is not just a buzzword in corporate world alone, it’s everywhere; engage your customers in the business world, readers and viewers in the media world.

 

Engaging a community has become far more obvious with the emergence of social media tools like Facebook and twitter and with people effectively utilizing it. People are connected with a click of a button however distant they might be.

 

But why are we not able to connect or engage our own employees who we interact with everyday?
