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?

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.

Onboarding, The Forgotten Step in Hiring


you're hired

Employers spend hundreds of millions of dollars collectively hiring people every year, but on average, employee turnover is over fifteen percent.
That means that if we assume that every employee lost costs your company $100k to replace and you have fifty employees, this could cost upwards of $750,000 a year for your company in after-tax dollars.
 
The problem is, too many companies are not looking at the cost of losing employees, but only at the cost of hiring them. They do not realize what losing people year after year does to morale, what it does to company culture and how much revenue is lost due to lost productivity, customers leaving with employees, and customers just leaving because they feel that they are no longer being taken care of.
