Improve Career Opportunities to Increase Employee Engagement and Reduce Turnover.
Each year we conduct our Survey of the American Workforce. It's what we use as the basis for our extensive normative database and how we benchmark scores in our 4Cs Employee Survey. A recent article posted by John Hall on LinkedIN highlights one of the key findings in the survey results having to do with employee loyalty and why employees really leave jobs.
It's a myth (and one that never seems to die) that employees leave their jobs primarly because of bad managers. Just try a Google search on "employees don't leave jobs, they leave managers" and you'll find dozens of articles and blog posts touting this tired old cliche. The problem is that the claim is simply not supported by the data. It's just a lazy way to explain away high turnover rates without actually trying to solve the problem. That's not to say that "some" people don't leave jobs because of bad management or horrible bosses. Everyone has heard stories about them and most of us have probably had at least one experience in our careers working for a monster. But "horrible boss" anecdotes are not reliable data and the truth is, while people leave jobs for many reasons, bad management ranks pretty low on the list.Read full post

The Importance of Employee Surveys During Mergers and Acquisitions
A study by KPMG indicates that 83% of merger deals don’t boost shareholder returns, essentially making them a failure. It’s suggested that this is partly due to mismanagement of workplace cultures, something that can be identified and worked on early with insight provided by doing an employee survey. Happiness and engagement levels often decline during a merger or an acquisition as it’s a significant change for any business and needs to be handled with care. Employee feedback can be extremely valuable, plus it immediately shows that you care about employees during this transitoryand vulnerable time.

How to Recognize Work Addiction in the Workplace
The growth of technology combined with the idea that we need to work harder to achieve more is a popular concept in the modern workplace. And, according to a study by Techtalk, 55% of US employees have admitted to checking work emails after 11pm. Research by Harvard Business Review also shows the average CEO works 62.5 hours a week - around 21.3 hours above the global baseline of 41.2 hours.
As technology makes it increasingly easy to push beyond the 9-5, Lucinda Pullinger, Global Head of HR at Instant Offices provides pointers on how US workers can recognize the difference between committed working habits and work addiction.
With smartphones, computers and apps at our fingertips, we’re able to maintain a constant connection to our work. In theory, these tools should make our workdays shorter and more efficient, but constant distractions and the inability to disconnect can lead to longer work hours and less to show for it.Read full post
