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.”

 


 

 

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.”

Fire Your Chief Happiness Officer

Fast Company: “Over the past two decades or so, conversations about talent have steadily shifted from productivity and career success to personal well-being and happiness. The underlying premise is that employees need to prioritize their own happiness over other career goals: “Don’t like your job?” the logic goes, “Quit it.” The simplicity of this formula is appealing. But it often leads organizations to make poor hiring and managerial choices, and employees to make bad career moves.”

 

 

Three reflections from Bersin IMPACT 2017

Culture Amp: “Culture Amp was proud to sponsor IMPACT 2017 at the end of May. The annual conference from Bersin by Deloitte explores how HR, learning and talent leaders — or people geeks, as we call them — should respond to new technologies, new definitions of work, and changes in worker expectations.

[Infographic] How Negative Feedback Can Have Positive Effects

GetHppy: “Negative feedback is most fruitful when there is already a culture of negative criticism in the office – which is not to say that everybody is always criticizing each other, but rather that everyone understands the language and purpose of negative feedback when it becomes necessary. To start developing that culture in your place of work, check out this new guide to negative feedback from Headway Capital. You’ll be surprised at the positive effect it can have!”

 

 

When Leaders Are Hired for Talent but Fired for Not Fitting In

Harvard Business Review: “Over and over again, organizations are unable to appoint the right leaders. According to academic estimates, the baseline for effective corporate leadership is merely 30%, while in politics, approval ratings oscillate between 25% and 40%. In America, 75% of employees report that their direct line manager is the worst part of their job, and 65% would happily take a pay cut if they could replace their boss with someone better. A recent McKinsey report suggests that fewer than 30% of organizations are able to find the right C-suite leaders, and that newly appointed executives take too long to adapt.” “In our view, there are three critical errors organizations must fix in order to upgrade their selection efforts.”

Zappos is struggling with Holacracy because humans aren’t designed to operate like software

EBN Magazine: “[T]echnology can only take you so far. Engagement is dependent on a very complex set of factors, which include an employee’s working relationships with peers and managers, career support, connection with the company’s culture and mission, pay and benefits, development opportunities and so on. It doesn’t magically appear by implementing the latest and greatest technology tools.
