Dear Industry Colleagues,
In these times of change, ambiguity and complexity, employee engagement is of paramount importance. Having a motivated and engaged workforce could be a competitive advantage for the organization as it could be an important make or break decision-criteria; if not done properly it could become a derailer.
Employee engagement involves some simple principles; two-way communication or feedback with the management, empowerment, quick decision-making .The principles of employee engagement remain the same whether it’s global, regional, or the local organisation.
Employee engagement is one of the most important things that we need to do in the current ambiguous and complex environment, but it’s the way that we implement the employee engagement activities that drives the employee experience. For successful implementation of employee engagement initiatives, it’s very important to have a thorough understanding of the context around cultural nuances (organisational as well as the country/community).
As we are engaging with a multigenerational workforce. Cultivating a new culture, finding balance between engagement and satisfaction, agility and adaptability is no easy task. Our role is to “enable the enablers” and this is the value we bring our organisation.
In this time of crisis with the out-break of 2019 Novel Coronavirus, I understand that you may be engaged with business continuity measures and I applaud you for playing an important role to minimise the health risk for employees and the community.
Coming July 2020, join me at Future HR Week as we will address the building blocks of Future HR. The future of work will never be the same.
