Wednesday Buzz: Is Your Employee Engagement Up to Par?
A simple question spurs new considerations about engagement. Plus: How to cope with Tax Day stress.
Here’s a blunt question from Jamie Notter, a partner at Culture That Works LLC:
“Does your employee engagement suck?”
We’ve tackled the subject of employee engagement before, from highlighting four secrets to ensuring employees are engaged to some of the most influential factors affecting engagement.
And now, Notter and SocialFish blogger Maddie Grant are launching a new effort to ensure organizations know exactly what they’re dealing with when it comes to engagement, without having to launch an exhaustive undertaking.
“Don’t get me wrong—a full culture assessment is completely worth it—it unlocks competitive advantage that you can’t achieve through strategy or implementation alone,” Notter writes. “But you have to be ready to invest time, attention and money to make it work.”
For those not yet ready for a full assessment, Notter and Grant are offering a Culture Diagnostic and Workshop, along with engagement coaching geared toward those in leadership positions.
