Increasing employee engagement and ultimately productivity is probably the biggest issue for HR. Millennials bring with them an independent spirit and lack of long-term loyalty to employers. This along with a growing freelance or ‘gig’ economy means that HR need to work harder to strengthen the bonds and sense of purpose between employee and employer.
We support our clients with their employee engagement by:
Taking the issue of pay off the table: employees need to see pay as fair and equitable before any other engagement strategies can hope to start working.
Creating a strong sense of purpose: employees need to understand ‘why’ is the business operating, what role does it fulfil, and ‘why’ am I doing what I do? Linking performance and contribution to the overall success of the organisation.
Success needs to be more than financial: developing metrics for performance of the business and individuals that are more than purely financial.
Employee ownership: involving employees in the process and feeling that they have control over their own destiny is important. Clear pay and career pathways that feel fair and motivate are one solution along with an element of choice especially with regard to benefits.
We create engagement strategies that are creative, future focussed and practical. Alongside we can develop compelling communication strategies and materials that support reward and engagement solutions.
