I can relate to this piece. Companies have great talent that they bury in the wrong roles or squeeze out because the 'wrong' people have an agenda and don't want change.

employees can be more engaged by making a difference through a social cause their company supports
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, September 18, 2013 10:18 AM

This graphic provides a simple overview of Employee Engagement which is helpful. From a larger perspective, we should realize that Employee Engagement is just one of the powerful drivers for organizational improvement; process and operations improvement, strategic alignment/clarity of purpose, and agility and flexibility (to drive and respond to change) also are additional critical forces for improving organizational effectiveness.

Value, Cognitive Authority, and Digital Badges

Value, Cognitive Authority, and Digital Badges | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

The major question that I have had since I’ve started exploring new hosting opportunities for our ORMS badges involves aspects of value, credibility, and “sincerity” of design involved in our badging infrastructure. Put simply, I believe that people will make judgments about the believability, credibility, and relevance of the digital badges based on elements of the metadata, the images used, and where the badge is hosted.

An argument for the view that "people will make judgments about the believability, credibility, and relevance [of] digital badges based on elements of the metadata, the images used, and where the badge is hosted" -  likely to have relevance for the #oerrhub hypotheses on informal assessment methods and informal support for learning.

Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials

Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Help Define the Future of Badge Initiative

 

There is enormous potential for badge initiatives to fundamentally improve the “exchange” of value between educational institutions, learners, and employers. But how is this “currency” defined? Who validates the value of badges? Who defines relevant sets of competencies, and for what purposes? To advance the answers to these and many other questions, we pulled together a team of experts from Mozilla, Blackboard, WCET, and Sage Road Solutions, as well as academic, governmental, civic, and corporate thought leaders, to provide a MOOC that fosters and strengthens emerging badge initiatives: “Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials.” 

 

This free and open MOOC is designed to help teams of people define their own badge initiatives, appropriate to their own contexts, and work through a series of challenges leading to concrete implementation plans. With this scaffolded learning experience, we aspire to broaden the awareness of the potential of badges, and more importantly, to facilitate the implementation of sustainable badge frameworks that offer concrete structures for validated badge “currency” exchange among educational institutions, learners, and employers.

Carol Sherriff's curator insight, September 7, 2013 11:36 AM

I like the simplicity of the model suggested - prompts thought - but on reflection it is to simplistic. People are differently motivated within each of the four headings. I tend to use Archetypes or NLP frames of reference when working with a group on motivation/

Bryce Wettstein's curator insight, September 9, 2013 12:08 AM

"Management is the opportunity to help people become better people. Practiced that way, it's a magnificent profession." - Professor Clay Christensen

 

I think this quote is an excellent supplement to the article. The article talks about four different emotional drivers that motivate employees, and how their morale affects their overall performance. If a manager is able to satisfy these emotional drivers, it develops positive employee engagement in the workplace.

 

This is a great example of the behavioral approach to management, which stresses group dynamic and leadership, social needs as primary motivating factors, and focuses more on the human side of an organization.

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, July 5, 2014 9:32 PM


Now, how can the principles of Behavioral Economics be employed in the workplace in order to optimize the attainment of the four emotional drivers?

 

For example, studies have shown that sharing unique, or even risky activities can considerably enhance bonding and teamwork. This has been shown to be true whether between lovers (or prospective lovers), colleagues, or both (although that last one is purely my own speculation!).

 

How can Behavioral Economics inform us on the attainment of the other three emotional drivers?

Learning at work strengthens Canada's economy.
Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

In Canada, nine essential skills for the workplace have been identified and defined. These skills are used in nearly every job and at different levels of complexity. They provide the foundation for learning all other skills and enable people to evolve with their jobs and adapt to workplace change.

 

Literacy and Essential Skills :

Reading

Writing

Document Use

Numeracy

Computer Use

Thinking

Oral Communication

Working with Others

Continuous Learning -- participate in an ongoing process of acquiring skills and knowledge. Continuous Learning tests the hypothesis that more and more jobs require continuous upgrading and all workers must continue learning to keep or to grow with their jobs. If this is true, then the following will become Essential Skills:

knowing how to learn;

understanding one's own learning style; and

knowing how to gain access to a variety of materials, resources and learning opportunities.
