EE - works when the HR professional is a brand manager!

For so many years, it has been oft-repeated that the contemporary HR professional must be multifaceted, possess an understanding of cross-functional aspects in the organization, provide strategic direction, intent and inputs to the line managers, be capable and competent to sit on the board – in a nutshell, be not just a leader in HR, but a strategic think-tank that most across the organization can really look up to.

Times have changed, and here is the need for the new age HR…

EE - who is responsible?

Creating an engaged employee is not just the responsibility of the human resources function or the head of Human Resources of an organization. Most contemporary organizations, barring an exceptional few, leave the task of creating employee engagement to the HR head or the human resources team. the top management and the leadership teams get disconnected with the day to day rigmarole of employee engagement, thinking or presuming that it is what the HR function exists for. Nothing can be far…

Engagement and War - The Annual Performance Appraisal

What would your managers choose if given the choice of either a root canal at the dentist or evaluating an employee's performance? I suspect many would jump at the opportunity to face the drill rather than the forms that make up most employee-appraisal systems today. At least the pain at the dentist is temporary; there's a good chance an evaluation will result in lasting pain for everyone involved.



Why is that the case? Performance-management systems are supposed to help managers do… Continue

Zero-Tolerance Approaches to Bullying Benefit Organizations

It's no secret that the most successful organizations encourage mutual respect among employees and foster collegial work environments. People simply do not perform at their best in hostile workplaces. I've said this many times: Bullies have no place in the office. They have a toxic effect not only on those who work around them but also, potentially, on your company's reputation overall.



But have organizations succeeded at changing bullies' behavior or weeding them out? According to a… Continue

Workforce engagement isn't in the pay packet

A number of twitter feeds over the past few days were quoting an article which included the statement "There is a direct relationship between an engaged and motivated workforce and company productivity"

Well that is not a statement that I can argue with, in fact it is one I would strongly endorse. What concerned me was the conclusion in the same article that there had been a 17 percentage point drop in employee engagement in the UK since 2006, and that this was due to companies under…

Is Employee Goal Setting Helping?

In my previous post on the latest Sibson Consulting survey, I recounted the disappointment that senior human resources professionals felt in their performance management systems. In this post, I want to pick up on one important theme that goes to the heart of any employee appraisal process. That theme is goal setting and measurement.



In the Sibson Consulting survey,… Continue

Layoffs - The Reputatble Way

layoffs in a reputable way.

Why HR needs CSR

Corporate social responsibility (CSR), a (largely) voluntary business approach that goes beyond the letter of the law and accepts accountability and transparency with regard to a business organisation’s impacts on people, society and the environment, has now become one of the main preoccupations of corporate leaders. Based on the fundamentals of good governance, ethics and compliance with the law, CSR offers additional opportunities for businesses to mitigate…

Memo to the Morale/Engagement Survey Haters: Here's Why You're Mistaken

It had to happen: the backlash against employee opinion surveys, engagement surveys, morale surveys, call them what you will. The sound you hear on the blogosphere in places such as HR Capitalist and here on the Employee Engagement Network is a crescendo of voices saying that surveys are just so 1990, they are done with, finished, they never were that useful anyway. We read of the thud of massive survey result feedback books arriving on organizations' doormats once each year and everyone…
