Importance of Celebrating Personal Milestones of Employees

Importance of Celebrating Personal Milestones of Employees | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Celebrating personal milestones of employees can help organizations to motivate their employees and drive their performance and loyalty.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Do you celebrate personal milestones of your employees. One milestone not mentioned you should be celebrating are when your employees take part in non-profit, social activities that are not political - like helping at a soup kitchen, food bank, or organizing a dinner drive for local hospital workers.  Are all of your employees tuned into what's going on in the lives of their teammates?

 

I've seen many companies drop this caring, empathy, and recognition during Covid as if people don't matter anymore. NOW is when we should be emphasizing these personal milestones.

Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability | TED Talk

Brené Brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

In my workshops on how to conduct effective 1-to-1s, I've been talking about the need for CEOs, Executives, and managers to first demonstrate vulnerability to get their employees to open up and speak truthfully.

 

Excellent TED talk on this subject.

Barry Deutsch's insight:

One of the topics I speak on in my complimentary presentation for Vistage Groups titled Managing Remotely in a Crisis is for managers to show empathy toward their team members.

 

Here's that key point being reinforced. The key is training managers how to be empathic - since for most managers it is not naturally occuring.

 

Here's the quote:

 

"Be trained on practicing empathy during this extreme situation. This can start as a weekly session and everyone can share their real-life stories where they displayed empathy with each other.

This allows your employees and supervisors to understand each other and this approach drives employee engagement and productivity in the whole team."
