In February, our Employee Engagement Briefings highlighted 40 employee engagement-related articles. Here is a recap of the Spotlight Articles of February 2017.
Forbes: “Perhaps because a tight labor market is making it hard to find and keep great workers, employee value proposition appears to be gaining traction again. EVP could be dismissed as just the latest three-letter acronym in the rotation were it not for several key aspects that help a company sharpen its strategy for improving its working relationship with its people.”
Google Searches Its Soul: Inside the Search Giant’s Effort to Get More Diverse – And to Change the Way We See the World
Fortune: “For a company built on delivering the rich diversity of human experience, the tech titan is not itself a diverse place to work—and it’s moving to change that. Google has decided to search its soul.”
Employee Connect: “The employee experience has become increasingly important in HR management because of evolving business trends such as peer-to-peer sharing, high turnover rates and competitive recruiting practices. The employee journey begins before a job applicant even decides to apply, and it continues after the employee leaves the company as an alumnus. In today’s customer-centric marketing, the employee experience has become just as important as the customer journey because satisfied employees provide better customer service and generate staff and customer referrals.”
Globoforce: “To learn more about developing introverted leaders, we talked to the expert – author and WorkHuman speaker Susan Cain. In part one of our Q&A, we talk about what it means to be an introvert, the qualities that make introverts exceptional leaders, and the best ways to recognize and reward the introverts on your team.”
