Coworkers Should Be Like Neighbors, Not Like Family

Coworkers Should Be Like Neighbors, Not Like Family | Engaging Times | Scoop.it
Reciprocal relationships will keep them engaged.
Hay Group Insight's insight:

All companies want engaged employees. After all, people who are engaged put in effort that goes above and beyond the minimum that’s required to complete a task. They are less likely to look for another job. And they project positive energy, which improves the mood of other employees and customers. One way to increase engagement is to foster a “neighbor” relationship.

Now’s the time to woo your staff

Now’s the time to woo your staff | Engaging Times | Scoop.it

With job opportunities becoming more plentiful, companies are having to think again about how to retain employees. People are on the move. Nearly a quarter of employees worldwide will change  jobs by 2018, according to a recent study by Hay Group, the management  consultancy. 

Workforce attrition is an expensive burden for companies: Oxford Economics,  the forecasting firm, recently estimated that it costs more than £30,000 to  replace a staff member. 

So it’s little wonder that employee engagement and retention has become a  priority for Keith Astill, corporate HR director at Nationwide, the building  society.

Global mobility leads to increased churn, according to Hay Group | Engaging Times | Scoop.it

Hay Group predicts that 192 million employees, or 23.4% of the global workforce, will move from their current role by the end of 2018. This is likely to make engaging and retaining staff even more crucial, meaning nurturing and retaining talent will become a critical business issue. Shifting global trends in business mean employers will need to radically change the way they engage staff in the future, according to Hay Group report, The New Rules of Engagement, exclusively seen by HR magazine.

I recently attended the Hay Group’s Employee Engagement Forum in New York City, which was attended by well-known organizations such as ESPN, Univision, Merck, BMW, Miles Finch Innovation, Luck Companies, Data Alliance, Borderfree, Estee Lauder and the Girl Scouts of America.
