looking beyond engagement for business success
Insights | October 13, 2016
Employee engagement is not enough to realize business success. Find out why by attending Brandon Hall Group’s webinar, sponsored by O.C. Tanner, How to Influence Great Work and Create a Culture of Success, at 1pm ET on Thursday, October 20th.
What does it mean to prioritize engagement at your organization? Almost all organizations conduct employee engagement surveys, and I have even seen from Brandon Hall Group’s 2016 Employee Engagement Survey that there is a shift, especially among high-performing organizations (HiPOs), from conducting employee engagement on an annual basis to a quarterly or twice-a-year basis. But it is not enough to just conduct employee engagement surveys, even on a more frequent basis.
Brandon Hall Group’s research shows that organizations need to prioritize employee engagement and link engagement to employee performance. Those organizations that do both of those practices see far greater improvement in key performance indicators than do organizations that just prioritize employee engagement.
There are many ways to link employee engagement to employee performance. And for the record, I do not mean that managers’ bonuses are decreased because of a dip in engagement levels among their direct reports. Some of the best practices to link employee engagement to employee performance include:
- Recognizing and appreciating employee accomplishments
- Providing feedback to employees and managers on performance, coaching and training
- Establishing goals
- Creating action plans with timelines so that the practices are implemented on an efficient and effective basis.
By executing on these practices your organization is showing your employees that they are making an impact on the organization, and that your organization values their contribution.
There is more to find out from our webinar, including:
