“As the world becomes more interconnected, value creation is shifting from the individual to the collective – resilient, high-empathy teams.” – Microsoft| Working Like a Network
Employee engagement is a property of the relationship between an organization and its employees. An “engaged employee” is one who is fully absorbed by and enthusiastic about their work and so takes positive action to further the organization’s reputation and interests.
Employee Engagement ensures your dots are connected to the global network. Employee Engagement – keeps your employees working like a seamless network creating a unified complete knowledge based competency.
Think of one day if your (entire!) fellow employees get up in the morning thinking:
“Great, I’m going to work. I know what I’m going to do today. I’ve got some great ideas about how to do it really well. I’m looking forward to seeing the team and helping them work well today”.
Read the story of Karthik who was successful in bringing back the emotional connect of his employees in his Ayappa Roses, (Karthik ensured this emotional connect by opting a cloud based online employee engagement survey which can be taken anywhere there is internet):
When Karthik started in 1995, Ayappa Roses, which made bouquets of fresh Roses and other exotic flowers, it was easy to train some 20 people and correct mistakes or praise them immediately. But today Ayappa Roses, has 450 employees and more than 250 franchise locations around India. This growth became rocky at times; as the company grew to its present size, Karthik could feel workers were less inspired and not communicating as well.
It was high time for Karthik to feel the pulse of the employee dis-engagement issues.
Karthik was determined to resolve employee engagement issues simply and swiftly. Also he ensured his employees took the ownership of giving him solutions of their problems.
The answer lied in transforming individual employees’ needs and wants to organizational needs and wants.
Karthik hired a trusted third party Employee Engagement Survey provider who provided Human Resource Software which is internet based and provides real-time feedbacks and analytics of surveys. It was an Indian Human Resource consultancy firm like Adfers Consultants LLP, who can help a single Human Resource manager to take large scale survey independently.
With the results of Employee engagement survey Karthik took positive corrective steps.
Nowadays, employees of Karthik’s Ayappa Roses are working like a network thanks to correct employee engagement strategies.
