HR leader Cathy Missildine had an interesting post on her blog regarding the ambiguity of the buzzwords “employee engagement”. (Here’s the article.) Her guest bloggers really dig into the credibility issue created with the focus on an area the majority of the HR community have not been able to affect in 13 years.
In our experience working with organizations across multiple continents, the majority of the time what gets called low engagement is really a lack of clarity. Every individual in the organization should be able to answer three simple questions.
- What are we doing?
- Why are we doing it?
- What are my responsibilities?
Over the next several weeks, we’ll dig deeper into some other simple concepts organizations that consistently excel have learned to well.
BTW – Cirrus Business Group is coming to Biz1190AM in Atlanta in August. We’ll keep you posted on our first air date.
