How A Meaningful Position Changes The Human Dynamic Of The Workplace

We came across an excellent articleon Fast Company about worker happiness (and the startling lack thereof).

It starts with the story of an employee who, after two decades of service to a financial insitution, decided he couldn't take it any more:

“I felt like no one cared about me as a person there, and finally decided to…

In A World Of Chaos, A Meaningful Culture Rules

Your brand operates in a messy world. 

One that's well beyond it's control.

Buffeted by random, surprising and disturbing trends, incidents and influences.

Inspired by sudden, amazing and lucrative opportunities.

Distracted, confused and tired out by the hyper-activity that surrounds it.

Empowered by the need, desire and passion that activity creates.

When you use your brand to…

As a result, they feel proud to be associated with the company.

They also feel that what their company does is both helpful and valuable to people.

As a result, they feel part of something purposeful.



It's a place where people…

Can Your Brand Tell A Workplace Story Like This?

We're willing to bet that more C-suite bottoms sit on Herman Miller chairs than any other brand chair.

We'll also go as far as to bet that a majority of those well-seated C-suiters would have a hard time telling an employee workplace story as compelling and meaningful as Herman Miller's.

As they say in their video, Herman Miller is more a…

Turning Strong CSR Stories into Meaning for Employees

A strong CSR report provides an excellent starting point for your brand to achieve a meaningful position in the hearts and minds of your employees

That's because, according to a recent Forbes report, CSR and employee engagement work hand in hand:

  • Hewitt & Associations found that, "the more a company actively pursues worthy environmental and social…

We've written before about the gaps between what business leaders believe and what their employees think when it comes to the company's values. 

Today we'd like to explore another gap.

This is the gap between what the CEO sees as the company's vision, and what employees are doing to help achieve that vision.

In some cases, the gap exists simply because employees haven't been informed of the vision.

As such, they are left to their own devices, pulling the company…

What's Happened To "Human" Resources?

Spreadsheet

Metrics.

They've taken over business.

From the C-Suite to the front-line, everything is measured, evaluated and judged.

Why?

Mostly because we can easily measure things now.

But there are limits to the value of metrics.

You can only measure what is evident or what people are willing to divulge.

You cannot measure the intangibles that drive people to believe in, or act…

Many tools provide excellent, beautiful, sophisticated, expensive answers to the wrong questions. I have yet to know an organization that defines engagement first and then creates its survey. Most I know ‘use that survey’… Because they can. Time to rethink?
