Amit Shwartz's curator insight, January 14, 2013 1:26 PM

You already have an engaged workforce – it’s just that they’re engaged in other things. No-one has trained them on their use of Amazon or eBay or Hotmail or Facebook. They didn’t read the (non-existent) manual about their phone in order to send a text message. The truth of the matter is that they figured it out for themselves or sought help from someone they thought could help (an “expert”).

Trumans's curator insight, January 14, 2013 5:04 PM

Only if you let it ... and that can happen when you don't live the way you say you will or work they way you say you will.  How relevant is your culture statement today?  When was it last updated?  Who had input?  Do you have a culture based in the 1800s or one based on today?

It is amazing to see how the economy has not only affected the employment rates but also the management/leadership's attitudes towards their employees. The sad trends highlighted in this article have become common in today's organizations for the past 5 years. But leaders and managers, beware that these attitudes are short-sighted and going to become your own trap once the economy swings up again...

Wellbeing is Contagious (for Better or Worse)

donhornsby's curator insight, January 11, 2013 6:57 AM

(From the article): "There is plenty of evidence that wellbeing is shared within existing formal and informal networks and that it spreads based on social ties," Harter continues. So it may be that people with high levels of wellbeing are good role models for others. A manager who cares about her health, for instance, may be more likely to encourage her employees to exercise or get checkups, if only by example.

6 Reasons Your Top Talent Won't Leave You

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, January 6, 2013 6:45 PM

I hate to disagree with a well-known business publication; however, the author of this article is absolutely mistaken why top talent will not leave a company. It has nothing to do with risk, demographics, the economy or health care benefits. Some employees might care deeply about these issues, but top talent couldn't give a darn. I'll focus on professionals, managers, and executives.


There are two primary reasons, employees seek greener pastures.


1. They no longer feel they are learning at a significant pace, they are not having a substantial impact on the group, department, function, or business. And they are not becoming something better in skills, capability, and knowledge for the time they have spent in their current role.


We call this the LIB curve (learning, impact, and becoming). It's pretty much a rephrasing of what Maslow called self-actualization.


When this curve plateaus and begins to decline top talent desperately attempts to find the exit door. Salary, benefits, the economy, and other temporary issues DO NOT set top talent back from realizing their dreams.


The problem is that most talented employees ALWAYS have plenty of options. They get calls all the time from recruiters, regardless of what's going on in the economy.


2. Many executives and managers are terrible at the skill of managing, developing, encouraging, and engaging their teams. Unfortunately, very few companies put any emphasis on this issue as a element of recognition, bonus, or training.


Many employees seek greener pastures because they think their boss is an idiot. Until companies invest in training those in a managerial capacity how to be great at managing, this will always be an issue of why your employees constantly have one foot out the door.

The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.

 

Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.

David Hain's insight:

When I started work in the late 70's with a big company, I really thought I'd have a job for life.  I'm glad I didn't, because life has become a series of gigs.  I tell my kids they need to work on building life and relationship skills that will enable them to transfer between gigs more easily.  The soft stuff really is the hard stuff, everything technical is more or less learnable.

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:43 AM
@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:54 AM
@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.
