Listen Up! | The Survey Initiative

Listen Up! | The Survey Initiative | Employee Engagement - The Inside Story | Scoop.it
It’s fair to say that the biggest asset any organisation has is its people. So, when changes and decisions need to be made, shouldn’t organisations be listening and involving their employees? After all, they are the ones at the coal face and responsible for day to day tasks and could come up with ideas that could positively change organisations and their bottom line. It is also quite likely that they know a lot more about how the organisation ‘ticks’ than the leaders!

The Survey Initiative's insight:

Just a mile or two from our main office, lies the small town of Walton-on-the-Naze. What is particularly unique about this seaside town is that it is flanked on three sides by the sea. The Naze, an historic peninsula, is not only a natural open space, but is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) famed for its fossils found in the Red Crag cliffs.

Pre Christmas Employee Engagement Boost | The Survey Initiative

Pre Christmas Employee Engagement Boost | The Survey Initiative | Employee Engagement - The Inside Story | Scoop.it
The Survey Initiative's insight:

As the end of another year approaches, employee contribution and overall engagement levels can begin to falter as the organisation gradually winds down for the festive period. However, the end of one year and the beginning of another can be a great time to boost employee engagement activity. The weeks leading up to Christmas can be an extremely valuable and significant time to build employee motivation and recharge for the year ahead, and if approached correctly, can have a real impact on the organisations success in future months and an excellent start to the New Year.

I’ve always been fascinated by ancient prehistoric monuments. The mystery that surrounds them and the sheer magnitude of engineering behind their being.

So of course, I was delighted and excited to hear of a new Neolithic site discovered just a ‘stones throw’ (pardon the pun) from our very own Stonehenge on theBBC website today.

You’ve Got A Friend In Me | The Survey Initiative

You’ve Got A Friend In Me | The Survey Initiative | Employee Engagement - The Inside Story | Scoop.it
The Survey Initiative's insight:

One of the most frequently asked free text question in the employee surveys we carry out is ‘What is the BEST thing about working for XYZ’? And the most popular theme that comes out of asking this question is ‘The people I work with’.

So just how important are our work colleagues? Very, it seems.

As most people work long hours, it’s not surprising that time spent with work colleagues during waking hours exceeds that spent with spouses, families and friends outside of the workplace.

Bearing this fact in mind, it is important that organisations allow their people the opportunity to build quality relationships with their colleagues. This can be accomplished in many ways, either by informal social gatherings outside of work, workplace events and activities or just encouraging general employee interaction.

The Survey Initiative's insight:

Equality and diversity in the workplace are people issues. It exists to make sure there is an ‘inclusive’ working environment where ‘difference’ is no obstacle to getting a job or progressing in a career. In the UK there are laws that oversee equality in the workplace and organisations must follow a set of practises to ensure discrimination on any grounds is eradicated and expectations of equality are met.

With Halloween just a matter of days away, I started to think about all things scary. When I was young, I was scared of all sorts of things, my dad, the school bully, monsters under the bed, ghosts in the wardrobe, you name it, but not so much these days.

Now I’m not saying that my boss is scary, though he does tend to make me jump sometimes, he is in fact completely the opposite – very democratic, visionary and able to let us all get on with what we need to do without too much interference.
