Unleashing the entrepreneurs inside your business

I am lucky to work with both self-employed and corporate experts. Not so long ago, it seemed as if larger organisations had all the advantages. They had the scale and resources that enabled them to compete in markets and geographies that were completely inaccessible to the little guy. In just a few years, those barriers have been torn down.

Turn Your Staff into an HR Referral Machine | Employee Engagement & Employer Branding | Scoop.it

Even in a down economy - or perhaps particularly in a down economy - involving your staff in the recruiting process is a great way to build a stronger team.

Some social networks have even created recruiting platforms that make it easier for organizations to tap their staff's social networks. LinkedIn's Referral Engine program is one such program.

Gen Y retention dilemma: HR problem of the decade? - Human Capital

Gen Y retention dilemma: HR problem of the decade? - Human Capital | Employee Engagement & Employer Branding | Scoop.it
The generation known for being the most tech-savvy is also among the most difficult to retain. As the Baby-Boomers trickle into retirement, securing the leadership pipeline is quickly become one of the most serious HR problems of the decade.

 

The simple reason is because Gen Y won’t stick around long enough to gain a holistic understanding of an organisation’s business operations.


Simply hanging on to the social-media generation is quickly becoming one of the foremost concerns for HR and senior management alike.

Workplace Engagement Around the World | Interactive map - Gallup survey | Employee Engagement & Employer Branding | Scoop.it

Gallup definitions: 

Engaged employees work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.”

Not engaged employees (we use “unengaged” on our map) are essentially checked out. They’re sleepwalking through their workday putting time — but not energy or passion — into their work.”

Actively disengaged employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish.”

Purpose plays this critical role because it is the source of the meaning and significance people seek in what they do.

Why Performance Assessment Curves Often Bend the Wrong Way - Forbes

Why Performance Assessment Curves Often Bend the Wrong Way - Forbes | Employee Engagement & Employer Branding | Scoop.it

Does your employee assessment process force you to produce a bell curve with roughly 10% high performers and 10% poor performers, with everyone else falling in the middle?

The problem with organizations that have only adopted the bell curve — and not the rest of the integrated process — is that they end up forcing differentiation by the numbers. Managers start with the formula instead of performance. This formulaic approach reverses the basic assumption that all people have the capacity to achieve stretch performance and continue to grow and develop. Instead, focusing on the curve gives the demoralizing message that only a few people can be successful, and the rest will be average or less. And if managers expect their people to perform at average levels (or worse), they will.
