What's the secret to getting staff on board?

It is a privilege when we are asked to come into an organisation to help deliver change or get employees engaged with a company’s set of messages. As survey providers we don’t implement change, instead we act as ‘investigators’, carefully unearthing the main drivers to get staff on-board and understanding the hurdles companies face to deliver change.

How Happiness Can Fuel Success in the Workplace [INFOGRAPHIC] | Harmonious and Balanced Workplace | Scoop.it
While there may be major studies about how social media distractions are costing businesses millions of money, a recent research conducted by James Fowler at UC San Diego shows that social media also contributes in enhancing happiness and productivity in the workplace.   An infographic published by Socialcast illustrates that happy and engaged employees are more efficient and productive workers.   From 51.4% to 47.0%, Americans happy with their work environment has decreased in the past four years. According to a 2009 study of US employees, the most happy and satisfied employees are those who feel that their jobs are secure - no surprise there.    The top 5 happiest careers in the US are:   1. Biotechnology workers 2. Customer service representatives 3. Teachers 4. Administrative assistants 5. Buyers   Want some of that happiness yourself?

Anthony MARTINS de NOBREGA's curator insight, March 4, 3:33 AM

I totally agree

John Rudkin's curator insight, March 4, 4:53 AM

....and so many businesses don't see it this way. 

Debra Walker's curator insight, March 6, 4:23 PM

I recently read an article that was describing corporate culture as lunch provided everyday & free beer on Friday.  If you take away those superficial connections for an employee - which are merely non cash components of a compensation plan and not a long term contributor to organizational culture - an engaged employee will remain committed to excelling in their role and for the organization.


An unengaged employee will be more impacted by that removal, resulting in connecting with that employee becoming even harder to achieve.


Engagement is multi-layered and more complex than being provided a sandwich so that I can continue to work through what should be a period of refreshment called lunchtime.
