9 Employee Engagement Archetypes
A short video based on “The two sides of employee engagement” by Sean Graber. Perfect for a smart break. It talks about the different ways in which employee engagement is measured and offers a new and bold perspective of looking at this.
Although our general tendency is to stray away from perks and benefits as an engagement driver in favor of culture-related drivers, we have to pay attention to recent research from Glassdoor, that found that more than half (57%) of people said benefits and perks are among their top considerations before accepting a job, and four in five workers say they would prefer new benefits over a pay raise.
From Airbnb’s $2,000 to travel, to Netflix’s year of paid maternity leave, thousands of employee reviews reveal the best benefits and perks in this article by Fast Company.
Because who doesn’t want to know what the future holds? HR trends, such as recruitment through social media, the impact of Generation Z, and the overhaul of performance reviews, were all apparent in 2015. In 2016, it’s likely that traditional business practices will be further disrupted by technology.
Wait Until the Time Is Right Before You ‘Appreciate’ Your Employees
Although the title may elicit a “What do you mean the right time? Employees should be appreciated all the time, anytime!” response, like it did with some people on our editorial team, it’s actually a valid point.
Psychologist and trainer Paul White talks about the critical instances where well-meaning supervisors (and, sometimes leaders who don’t want to do the hard work of dealing with problems) try to use appreciation as a “quick fix” for deeper issues that need to be addressed.
Paula is a content strategist with a big passion for life and the pursuit of happiness. When she's not creating an eBook or tweeting the latest trends, she's probably petting a cat or watching a movie.
