Simple Steps To Make An Office Environmentally-Friendly


83% of Americans are looking for ways to lead more sustainable lives, but when it comes to going to work, it can be difficult to do this if employers aren’t on the same page. Many employees want to see their employer making efforts to go green, but often can’t compromise their paycheck to work somewhere that does. Carrying out employee surveys will help companies see what areas their workers want to see changes and become involved in the process.

Coronavirus Guidance for HR


CDC is asking employers to do all they can to slow Coronavirus

How should HR, supervisors and managers respond to these concerns? How it might impact their employees and what resources are available to help? To begin with:

  • Make sure employees who are sick stay home until their symptoms resolve. 
     
  • Encourage remote working if possible. Telework is a critical tool for reducing the spread of sickness by minimizing face-to-face contact, and maintaining business continuity if employees are asked to self-isolate or quarantine. 
     
  • Remind employees that work travel must be limited and/or restricted in some cases
     
  • Encourage employees to follow simple precautions to prevent the spread of disease.
     
  • Strongly encourage canceling or postponing large in-person meetings and events or using video technology instead of live gatherings.

Here are some additional resources for HR:

SHRM - Coronavirus Preparedness Plan

HR Executive - Coronavirus Communications

Can you tell the story of your brand? Can your team?


Now that we understand the value of onboarding, employee engagement and leadership, let’s turn to developing an effective tool that can help with all three – the brand story.

My goal is to have every company, no matter their size, get rid of their mission, vision and values statements.
 
WHY?
 
No one remembers them, and even fewer people live them and make decisions that affect the company based upon them.
 
Mission, vision, and value statements are words on a wall or letterhead that are taught to new employees on their first day of employment and then never reinforced. Companies do not use these statements as a compass when making corporate decisions; when laying out new policies or procedures or if they do, they certainly do not tie them back effectively to the original mission, vision and value statements.

Are Your Employees Really Engaged?


sleep at work workload

Employee engagement is the key to the success of any company long-term.

Do your employees care about the work they do and your customers, or are they simply coming to work day after day, week after week, year after year and producing the minimal effort needed to guarantee that they will continue to receive a paycheck every two weeks?
  
Your company is only as valuable as your unhappiest employee on their worst day.
 
Think about it!

The 4Cs Action Planning Workbook: How to Turn Your Employee Survey Results Into Lasting Change


"SOCQ" It to Your Action Planning

employee survey action planning book

Implementing an effective action plan after conducting an employee survey is the essential next step for a number of reasons. First and foremost, making improvements to your work environment and helping knock down barriers to your employees’ success should be the reason you did the survey in the first place. Equally important, asking your employees to share their thoughts and opinions through a survey and then ignoring the results is actually worse than not doing a survey in the first place and damage employee’s trust and confidence in the organization.
 
So what does a great action plan look like? We know from experience that there is no “one-size-fits- all” approach and flexibility is key. In some organizations, strategic planning is very “top down” while in others it is very decentralized. Survey action planning should work the same as other similar processes in your organization. Also, some groups require the structure of a formal planning process while other groups may be equally effective using a more informal approach.
