How to Tackle U.S. Employees' Stagnating Engagement

How to Tackle U.S. Employees' Stagnating Engagement | Mind Your Business! | Scoop.it

Since the financial meltdown of 2008 and the recession that followed, the American workforce has struggled to adapt to an uncertain economic climate. Sluggish growth, persistently high unemployment, and sharp spending cuts by businesses and consumers alike have taken a toll.

Though the state of the U.S. economy has changed substantially, the state of its workplace has not. According to Gallup's State of the American Workplace: 2010-2012 report, employee engagement levels remain stagnant among U.S. workers. By the end of 2012, as the U.S. inched toward a modest economic recovery, only 30% of American workers were engaged, or involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their workplace.

The Boomer-Millennial Workplace Clash: Is it Real?

The Boomer-Millennial Workplace Clash: Is it Real? | Mind Your Business! | Scoop.it

If you haven’t disclosed the details of a drinking binge, blasted music from your cubicle, or taken a mid-meeting nap at work recently, then you’re in better shape than many of the employees at a Fortune 500 healthcare company, where lately some business unit managers have asked the HR department for help teaching what they refer to as Millennial workplace etiquette.

 

In fact, they are asking for books, training programs, videos, anything to orient Millennial employees to the norms and culture of an organization.

On the heels of Time magazine’s controversial recent cover story by Joel Stein, which referred to Millennials as lazy, entitled, and selfish, it’s important to consider how that characterization, whether true or unfairly conjured from stereotypes, plays into workplace dynamics.

Researchers Explain How Brands Make You Fall In Love | Mind Your Business! | Scoop.it
Brands spend millions of dollars trying to make consumers fall in love with them, and according to C.W. Park, director of the Global Branding Center at USC’s Marshall School of Business, these attempts are usually miserable failures. "If you really ask people, they have only vague understandings about each brand," says Park. "Or they’re not aware of many brands in the first place."
