5/3 gets engaged

5/3 gets engaged | Engaging Managers' News | Scoop.it

This interesting, if rather long article, gives a detailed account of the employee engagement strategy of this US based bank. It's worth reading in full if you can.

 

In less than two days, a corporate employee-engagement program changed Robert Shaffer's life.  It’s just what chief executive officer Kevin T. Kabat wanted to hear. He believes employee engagement is critical if the bank is to successfully leverage its model as a super-regional institution that can help its customers capitalize quickly on opportunities through its 15 affiliates spanning 12 states. 

 

“We haven’t lowered the accountability that we hold people to,” Kabat says. “What we’re raising is the bar of quality of life and balance. And if you think about that, people make work decisions based on life reasons, and vice versa. And what we’d like to do is leverage both. And if I can have a healthier employee base which is more engaged because they feel like we care about them holistically, I benefit from that.”

Future Work Skills 2020

Future Work Skills 2020 | Engaging Managers' News | Scoop.it
Global connectivity, smart machines, and new media are just some of the drivers reshaping how we think about work, what constitutes work, and the skills we will need to be productive contributors in the future. This report analyzes key drivers that will reshape the landscape of work and identifies key work skills needed in the next 10 years. It does not consider what will be the jobs of the future. Many studies have tried to predict specific job categories and labor require- ments. Consistently over the years, however, it has been shown that such predictions are difficult and many of the past predictions have been proven wrong. Rather than focusing on future jobs, this report looks at future work skills—proficiencies and abilities required across different jobs and work settings. Institute For The Future
