Though there has been a recent trend toward employers offering remote working and telecommuting arrangements, having a majority of your workforce working from home can be daunting when leaders and managers have firm deliverables and deadlines to meet.
Your company's support for career development drives employee attraction, engagement, and retention - not to mention making sure that the right people are in the right place at the right time. Yet many organizations assume career development will take care of itself and end up paying the price.
Several recent studies from organizations such as Center for Creative Leadership and Lominger have identified that many corporations have leaders and employees who do not possess the competencies needed for organizational success. Would you get on an airplane being flown by a pilot who has not been adequately trained and tested? Shareholders take the same risk when investing in an organization whose leaders and talent have not been properly vetted.
Tired of hearing about the financial benefits of high employee engagement, but don't know how to communicate results to your executive team?
The slow progress of the current economic rebound presents organizations with a particular challenge for engaging and retaining talented employees. As business confidence lags due to choppy economic indicators, employees experience the ongoing stress of generating productivity gains without getting additional help and resources. This type of workplace stress can eventually cause even the most loyal workers to become disengaged.
