Annette Schmeling's curator insight, May 25, 2013 10:02 AM

Frank Sonnenberg writes I a clear explanation of the values structure of a strong trust system. Compassion, as an ethic of care, is another value that I believe should be be added to this list. In a caring relationship, the needs and wants of another, not some per-established ideal, are taken into consideration. Naturally, we trust more when we know that we are cared for.

Gene Shklover, PhD's insight:

high-performance organizations are more than 4.5 times more likely than low-performance organizations (63% vs. 13%) to measure the impact of engagement on revenue growth.

A critical element of alignment is a corporate culture that makes employee engagement the responsibility of frontline managers and top leadership rather than an activity wholly owned by human resources. . Frontline managers are the linchpin for building and sustaining engagement, which is why one of the best employee engagement practices supported by i4cp research is to include engagement as part of each manager's performance review--high-performance organizations are twice as likely as low-performance organizations (40% vs. 19%) to do this.
