SPOTLIGHT ARTICLE

How to Make Work More Meaningful for Your Team

Harvard Business Review: “Over the past few decades, a great deal of research has shown that leaders play a significant role in helping employees understand why their roles matter. Furthermore, the leadership characteristics that enable these cultures of meaning and purpose to engage employees are a reflection of a leader’s personality — which has been proven to have a strong impact on team and organizational performance. In particular, research suggests that there are four key personality characteristics that determine leaders’ ability to make other people’s jobs more meaningful.”

 


 

 

Why We Got Rid Of The Annual Review, For Good

OfficeVibe: “Despite the annual review occurring only once a year, its looming presence has lasting, residual effects on employees’ day-to-day mentality. More often than not, it infects the culture of an organization. It generates a mindset in employees that dictates the way they work, focused on external rather than internal motivators. It’s a mindset founded on the premise of fear, and where fear exists, innovation and growth become stunted. We sat down with Kahina Ouerdane and Joanna Awogni, the visionaries at the helm of GSOFT’s Culture & Organization team. They explain in an interview why our organization has decided to go against the grade and cut out the annual review from our feedback cycles, for good.”

 

 

Employee Engagement Isn’t a One and Done Activity

HR Bartender: “At this point, I think we all know it’s important and companies need to focus on it. But it’s also important to understanding that engagement isn’t necessarily the goal.” “What I mean by that is the goal should be what engagement creates.”

Experts Weigh in on 5 Alarming Employee Engagement Trends

Bamboo HR: “HR professionals and other business leaders everywhere wonder (sometimes obsessively) how to drive more engagement among their people. As ethereal as the concept can sometimes feel, there are real insights HR professionals can gain today that, when applied, lead to increased engagement. In fact, our very own VP of Thought Leadership, Rusty Lindquist, loves sharing those insights. That’s why he recently participated in a webinar with Greg Harris, CEO at Quantum Workplace; Angela Hills, CRO at Cielo; and author and speaker, Joe Gerstandt. Taking data based on Best Places to Work, together they discussed five troubling employee engagement trends and provided nugget after nugget that business leaders can apply to increase employee engagement in their organizations. Here are our some of our favorite takeaways from their conversation.”

Is Culture Fit a Myth? (24:30)

Globoforce: “Hiring for culture fit means ensuring that both the organization and the new employee realize a right decision has been made and both sides have all the necessary information as they enter what can be a wonderful and fulfilling future together.”

SPOTLIGHT ARTICLE

Small Talk Is an Overrated Way to Build Relationships with Your Employees

Harvard Business Review: “The relationships that you form with each of your direct reports are central to your ability to fulfill your three core responsibilities as a manager: Create a culture of feedback, build a cohesive team, and achieve results collaboratively. But these relationships do not follow the rules of other relationships in our lives; they require a careful balancing act. You need to care personally, without getting creepily personal or trying to be a “popular leader.” You need to challenge people directly and tell them when their work isn’t good enough, without being a jerk or creating a vicious cycle of discouragement and failure. That’s a hard thing to do.”

 


 

 

Employee Engagement: Seeing The Bigger Picture

OfficeVibe: “In this comprehensive guide on employee engagement, you’ll learn everything you need to know about what engagement is, why it matters, and how you can get started on measuring and improving it.”

 

 

How A Leader’s Personality Impacts the Ability to Win

Skip Richard: “Personality is one of the least understood elements of entrepreneurial and business success. Why is that still the case after decades of study and research?”

 

 

Why We Shouldn’t Overdesign Employee Experiences (Podcast 01:14:27)

The Future Organization: “Georgia Collins is the Senior Managing Director and Co-Leader of the Workplace Strategy Practice at CBRE. Collins’ advice for corporations is threefold. First, consider how to strip out the friction in work. Second, think about how to elevate the work experience. And third, intentionally don’t ‘plan’ everything.”

How The Best Companies Engage Employees [INFOGRAPHIC]

Digitalist Magazine: “Employees who are engaged are more passionate, motivated, and productive. Quantum Workplace created an infographic to help HR professionals develop a strategy to tackle employee engagement head-on.”

 

 

Sunday Night Blues: Do 76% of Our Workers Lead Lives of Quiet Desperation?

Fistful of Talent: “If you’ve been in the workplace for a few years and worked at a few places, you may have experienced the Sunday Night Blues. Don’t know what I’m talking about? It’s the looming sense of dread you feel on Sunday if you have a job you really hate and know that you have to go back to it on Monday.”

 

 

What’s The Deal With All The LEGO®?

LinkedIn Pulse: “In 2015, our [D2L] Product Development team was looking for a way to recognize contributions in their department, specifically when a new feature or product was shipped to a customer. In the past, we had done some smaller events to promote these achievements, but there was no lasting memory of it afterwards. Much of what you create in a software role is virtual, so having a physical recognition method would add a nice touch. A few of our employees wanted to model the way some of their previous, much larger, companies had done this kind of “ship it” type awards. But it had to be different. It had to be D2L-ified. Enter LEGO®.”

 

 

6 Transformative Benefits of Respect in the Workplace

Bonusly: “In the workplace, over half of employees claim that they don’t regularly get respect from their leaders. This is especially notable since employees also report that being treated with respect by leaders is more important than any other leader behavior. Respectful behaviors aren’t limited to upper management and therein lies their potential. Anyone at any level in the organization can, and should, show respect for others.”

Employee Engagement-Related Spotlight Articles of July 2017

In July, our Employee Engagement Briefings highlighted 40 employee engagement-related articles. Here is a recap of the Spotlight Articles of July 2017.

 

 


 

How and Why You Need to Recognize Your Executives

Bonusly: “For leaders with greater influence, continuous personal improvement and targeted motivation can have a significant impact on an organization. Senior leaders make excellent champions and role models for receiving recognition as well as giving it.”

 

 


 

Want Your Employees to Trust You? Show You Trust Them

Harvard Business Review: “In short, trust begets trust. When people are trusted, they tend to trust in return. But people must feel trusted to reciprocate trust. Managers have to do more than trust employees; they need to show it. Based on our research work and time spent in companies studying trust, we’ve identified some of the most important ways managers erode trust and how they can signal it more clearly to their teams.”

 

 


 

8 Employee Engagement Ideas for Employers Who Care

Capterra: “Instead of making you suffer through another zillion-item list, I’m going to do something different. I’ve scoured HR and talent management blogs, websites, and e-books so that you don’t have to, and I’ve condensed all the best advice into eight rock-solid umbrella tips, presented for your reading pleasure in no particular order. They’re left unranked because it’s so hard to say which tips will work best due to the variety of company cultures out there. I’ve also offered three suggestions for ways to put each tip to work, because not every small business HR manager has the same level of control or influence over their company’s budget, planner, and employees.”

 

 


 

Stop Using the Excuse ‘Organizational Change Is Hard’

Harvard Business Review: “During nearly every discussion about organizational change, someone makes the obvious assertion that “change is hard.” On the surface, this is true: change requires effort. But the problem with this attitude, which permeates all levels of our organizations, is that it equates “hard” with “failure,” and, by doing so, it hobbles our change initiatives, which have higher success rates than we lead ourselves to believe.”

We Talk Leadership And Vulnerability With A Powerhouse

OfficeVibe: “We met with Caroline Losson, the current VP Marketing for Keurig – previously the VP Marketing for Natrel, Marketing Director for Molson Coors, and Coca Cola. The seasoned executive sheds some light on the right time for micromanagement, the truth about work-life balance, and what it’s like being a female executive in today’s workforce. Most of all – why companies today need to put their people first.”

 

 

Answers to Your Top 5 Recognition Questions

Globoforce: “As a follow-up to WorkHuman 2017, we hosted a webinar a few weeks ago around 5 Tips for Launching a Social Recognition Program. Derek Irvine, vice president, client strategy and consulting, and Lynette Silva, senior recognition strategist, led the discussion, which generated a ton of great questions from listeners. Lynette graciously offered to answer five of those questions below on budgeting for recognition, the science of turnover, “non-wired” workers, and setting up your program for long-term success. We hope these answers are helpful as you think about how recognition could be positioned more strategically in your organization.”

 

 

Building A Blueprint For Effective Employee Engagement

Forbes: “How can an organization increase engagement at the workplace? Well, it’s really simple: Know your audience. But before organizations can learn their audience, they need to find, hire and equip managers to effectively engage staff to add to organizational success.”

How Uber’s Hard-Charging Corporate Culture Left Employees Drained

BuzzFeed: After a highly publicized corporate meltdown this spring, Uber is working to repair a culture employees and observers say is aggressive, cutthroat, and demanding. But years of putting out fires 24/7, partying hard and working harder, and contending with volatile managers have taken a toll on the mental health of the white-collar workers who were instrumental to building the Uber empire.”

 

 

The critical gap when it comes to building empathy

CultureAmp: ““How do you build empathy? Be empathetic!” Unfortunately, that’s not particularly helpful, and misses out on critical elements of how to truly build empathy. Through my training as a marriage and family therapist I learned techniques that have practical application. We’ll explore interchangeable responses and confirming understanding, explaining how and why they’re important to building empathy.”

 

 

10 Hiring Mistakes You Must Stop Making Right Now

LinkedIn Talent Blog: “Most recruiters I know are guilty of at least one of the hiring mistakes below. It’s not their fault, either: these bad habits have become the norm in today’s recruiting world. Nobody’s perfect. Fortunately, the fixes are easier than you think. A few simple tweaks here and there can make a huge difference in the quality of your hires. Read on to see if you’re guilty of any of these common mistakes and learn how to fix them quickly and effectively.”

 

 

How HR Can Become Agile with Retrospectives

Greenhouse: “A Retrospective is a weekly meeting where the team discusses current pain points and decides on action items to resolve them. The format is wonderful because it’s not specific to one kind of problem or domain; it’s applicable in any environment with a repeating pattern of work such as building software, managing a team or recruiting amazing employees. The only other requirement is an appetite for improvement.”

The Definitive Guide to Employee Engagement Surveys

Tiny Pulse: “My goal is for you to understand the fundamental reason the very best managers reach the top and leave everyone else in the dark. I want you to understand how they are able to maximize the talent potential of their teams, regardless of what company they join. By itself, understanding how the best do it won’t make you and your organization awesome. It’s a mere thought, after all. If you want to be like the top managers, you need to dedicate many hours of careful collaboration and experimentation with your team, all guided by the idea of employee engagement.

 

 

Interview Training 101

Greenhouse: “A common question I’m asked by colleagues in Recruiting, Human Resources, and People Operations is: How do you actually do interview training? First, the fact that you’re planning interviewing training is great! Training your interviewers is a super important—and far too often overlooked—piece of a great hiring system. Well-trained interviewers protect your company from unintentional discrimination, ensure a consistently positive process and result in better hires.”

 

 

How to be extremely productive without getting extremely exhausted 

New York Magazine: “A new book — Peak Performance — claims to offer the recipe for success. Authors Steve Magness, a coach of top runners, and Brad Stulberg, who writes about the science of human performance (for Science of Us and elsewhere), lay out a number of principles they say are applicable across endeavors, whether you’re trying to run a four-minute mile or get a promotion at work.”

Why Unconscious Bias Training Doesn’t Work—5 Ways to Actually Make a Difference

LinkedIn Talent Blog: “On the whole, people like unconscious bias training: it validates their experiences, opens their eyes to new insights, and shows that their company cares about diversity and inclusion. That’s all great. Unfortunately, unconscious bias training just isn’t that effective. Research shows that educating, training, and providing feedback to managers are the least effective ways to create a more diverse workforce. This poses a very real challenge when it comes to hiring for diversity. Raising awareness is a good first step, but it’s not enough—you need real action.”

Bonusly: “Introducing new technology in your organization isn’t always easy.

To make sure you get the most from the time and energy you invest in rolling a new technology out, we put together a list of tried and tested tips that are sure to make a positive impact.”
