Employee engagement starts from the top. How can you teach employee engagement effectively?

Enabling effective engagement cannot be the preserve of just one area, it requires the combined and aligned efforts of communication and HR as well as the co-operation of those responsible for technology and the acceptance of well governed power sharing as a way of working by leaders at every level.

The new work place must offer real opportunities for employees to be engaged in every day performance and big ticket change. The real war for talent is just beginning and the winners will be organizations which have a culture of distributed leadership and adult to adult relationships.

The old workplace mentality was in many ways characterized by hierarchy and a bureaucratic way of thinking. The new work place is defined by fluid and dynamic decision making.

The new workplace is shifting fast from my loyalty for security to my talent for more voice. Our research confirms that to enjoy the benefits of engaged people, organizations need to be radical in how they govern decision making in a much more considered and involving way.

Gather the sponsor group and negotiate the dimension of the givens of any situation where employees need to adapt to change. Seek to expand the boundaries of influence that wider groups of employees can have on the end result.

Imagine a peach with it’s stone in the middle. The plan of action is to reduce the size of the stone, which are the key negotiating subjects and grow the size of the flesh, the ability of your employees to decide and collaborate in the workplace.

The peach should precipitate the design of interventions which give some or much of the work to those affected and ultimately everyone whether it is strategy, change or recovery.  Find out how to improve your employee productivity and retention now.



Customer Reviews

“Just a short note to tell you that the marketing suggestion you gave us to use the Customer Retention Programs idea to increase traffic into our stores is working. As you know, we operate large wholesale warehouse stores throughout the Midwest and want to be another Costco. The real objective is to enroll new members who prefer to shop at our stores. We use the incentive packages as a gift each time a member refers a new member. Your staff has been very helpful.”
Dan DeSantis — United Stores, Chicago, IL
“In that time that we have had the opportunity to do business, we have found that they supply a valuable product that does help in the level of excitement needed to have a promotion be successful. We have used incentive packages in sales promotions, charity auctions, spiffs to employees, and various other events with success.”
“We operate an outbound center with 300 work stations. The Customer Retention Program gives my operators a tool to help close the sale. We have found your staff to be very professional and always willing to help. Last month we used the Customer Retention Program certificates for a new real estate client that asked us to book appointments in a new development of million dollar homes. It worked great. Good luck. Best Regards.”
Gary Farber — President MOTIVATIONAL MARKETING, Maywood, NJ
One of the new and exciting awards in the 1st Quarter program just got better. We’ve upgraded our incentives to offer better rewards and the staff is more productive.
“The Best Appointment Setting Premium” “Many thanks for the best appointment setting premium we have ever tried. We used to spend thousands monthly for kitchen knives as our premium to get our reps in the homes. We now spend less than $100 a month and set 3 times as many leads. Our sales reps thank you also.
Robert Alderio – Kirby of West Valley.
