The silver lining is that businesses have an opportunity to hit the reset button on how they interact with their employees.⏤ Robert Scott
One silver lining we have today is to hit the reset button. Not only in our businesses, but also in our personal lives.
When so much attention has focused on the employee engagement challenge for so long — with few apparent results to show for it — aren’t we clearly missing or not seeing something?
My conversations with pioneering business and thought leaders have revealed some surprising themes on what people lack and long for in their work.
Recently, my findings published in the March 2020 edition of the Cutter Business Technology Journal.
In the article, I present an in-depth review and analysis of all the responses to the question, “What do people really lack and long for?”
Going through this exercise resulted in the discovery of seven key themes, five of which I cover in the article:
- Feeling Greater Security in Being Their True Selves at Work
- More Meaning in Their Work
- More Alignment with Their Purpose at Work
- More Appreciation, Recognition, Significance, and Respect at Work
- More Community and Belonging at Work
Paying more attention to these themes may provide new and untapped avenues for greater employee happiness, engagement, and, ultimately, customer satisfaction and business results.
More information and a copy of the article are available directly from Cutter by purchasing a subscription.
Or, just shoot me an email to request a copy, and I’ll send you a PDF.
I hope you will read the article, and l’m looking forward to hearing what you find most intriguing?
