Barry Deutsch's insight:

Interesting article on productivity of a remote workforce. The question is whether metrics of more CRM activity or chat based activity in apps like Yammer and Slack are leading indicators of productivity levels?

Jack Welch's Masterclass On Employee Engagement: 'In a Business, There Are Two Measurements That Count'

Jack Welch's Masterclass On Employee Engagement: 'In a Business, There Are Two Measurements That Count' | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Jack Welch, the legendary chief executive who transformed General Electric into one of the most successful companies of the last century during his tenure died today according to media reports. He was 84.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Good summary in Chief Executive Magazine by Jack Welch regarding his two primary areas of focus - employee engagement and customer satisfaction - both of which are intimately linked.

 

He talks about helping employees understand what's expected, where the vision is/where you're headed, what their impact will be on it, and what it means to them personally.

 

I find most companies fall short in this level of communication below the executive level. Very few employees understand what's expected, where the company is headed, what their specific role/impact is in that vision, and how it translates to something personal for them. Without this communication and training managers how to do it frequently - most companies fail to achieve decent levels of engagement and consequently suffer on customer satisfaction - and the related financial metrics.

Get five proven tips from Cassidy Jakovickas, CPA, on how to improve your tax firm's employee performance reviews.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Good reminders on the basics of effective performance management. Notice number one on the list is map out expectations.

 

This is the central theme of our consulting, workshops, and executive search practice - define success. NOT defining success is the number one reason for hiring failure, ineffective performance management, and poor employee engagement (and subsequently employee productivity).

 

Most studies show that at best 50 percent of your workforce knows what their immediate boss expects of them. In entrepreneurial and small businesses, that number is more likely to be in the 80 percent range of employees, candidates, new hires not understanding what's expected of them.

 

Huge problem in most companies. How are you fixing it?
