Council Post: What Work Martyrs Reveal About Employee Engagement

Council Post: What Work Martyrs Reveal About Employee Engagement | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
If your workplace is populated with too many work martyrs, there’s a good chance your employee engagement (and, ultimately, retention) levels will take a hit.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Interesting article on the concept of "work marytrs" - those who feel the need to broadcast to others their excessive workaholic behavior.

 

I can appreciate this article having grown up in a few large competitive organizations like Beatrice Foods, Mattel, and Westinghouse where everyone seemed to be in competition for who was the bigger work martyr.

 

My question is whether there is some hidden agenda/cultural issue that drives some of your employees to feel the need to work excessive hours and then make sure everyone else knows they are doing it.

How Caring About Employees Translates to Business Success

How Caring About Employees Translates to Business Success | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
It’s safe to assume that most companies want happy employees. Unfortunately, for many businesses, profits often take priority at the helm of the ship and employee satisfaction takes the stern. Moreover, even fewer companies know what it takes to actually make their employees happy.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

We can all agree with the article headline that there is a direct correlation between employee happiness and business success.

 

How do you focus in this area, particularly when surveys, such as the Gallup engagement survey, show that engagement, happiness, and satisfaction is less than 30%?

 

I liked the way the author of this article broke down 4 key areas to focus on to improve employee happiness: trust, health, recognition, and culture.

 

What initiatives are you currently implementing to focus on these 4 key areas?

Happy Employees are not Engaged Employees

Happy Employees are not Engaged Employees | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Businesses want happy, motivated employees who are also engaged. The trifecta of employee success. So, how do we make that happen? Is it empowerment?
