A little investment in an employee development plan can save a lot in employee turnover. Increasing employee engagement is a priority for every business. Engaged employees are more productive for, and more loyal to, the company.
According to a survey by Gallup , only 32 percent of workers feel engaged at work. Investing in employee development can help to grow your employee engagement. Giving your staff career advancement opportunities, and investing in their development, gives them a reason to be engaged at work. Ideally, each business should ask its workers what areas they want to develop, and then offer opportunities in those areas. Personalize your development opportunities to engage your employees the best.
As previously discussed, employees who are given growth opportunities are more likely to be satisfied with their job and engaged in the company. Employees are the face of every organization. When customers interact with staff that is engaged and satisfied, they are more likely to have a positive experience. Every positive experience, in turn, increases customer engagement and satisfaction. The more satisfied your employees are, the more likely your clients are to be satisfied in return.
Every company invests in human capital, whether it understands it or not. Spending this money, but not paying a little more for employee development is like paying a significant amount of money for a Super Bowl commercial spot, but then refusing to spend money to make a quality commercial. That would be an awful investment for your company.
Your business has to spend money on developing its workers to maximize the return on your human capital investment. Improve your employees by offering opportunities for growth and learning; it will ultimately improve your bottom line. Human capital management allows for an enhanced flow of information throughout your company.
Investing in your human capital can work to better communication by improving the quantity and quality of information passing up and down your business. For example, the relationships forged through a mentorship program can lead to lines of communication between superiors and subordinates that never would have existed otherwise. Human capital development works to improve every facet of employee performance, including communication. This process can help your company to discover employees who may be lacking communication skills and assist them in remedying this situation.
When communication improves, so does your business. Better communication leads to better employee satisfaction and engagement. This improvement, in turn, leads to enhanced overall performance and productivity. Yes, human capital development helps you to retain your employees.
When you look at the factors that drive productivity, there is only one group of drivers that businesses can influence with ease. Crucially, these are around leadership effectiveness, vision and values, staff engagement, people development and continuous improvement. Drivers that align perfectly with our framework. According to more recent research by our friends at Lumien, the impact of an Accidental Manager is still rife today, causing up to a 4.
Well the answer is, not where we should be. Have we really sat back and allowed that 2. The link between bad management and poor productivity is well established. An improvement of just 0. It is worth noting that the UK has a persistent problem of low productivity and we continually lag behind other large economies.
The more productive we can become as a country, the more prosperous and fairer our society can be. Noise for managers can come in many forms, from emails, notifications and meetings, to ineffective multi-tasking. In order to develop people managers, we need to build into their time a focus on people development. By earmarking that time, we send a strong message about how development is valued and prioritised. Providing templates that not only facilitate regular tasks, but also promote behaviour change, is a great way to cut the noise.
A facilitating structure that gives the opportunity for review, along with nudges towards best practice, helps people to see the effectiveness of their actions. The latest technology from Clear Review, for example, is an excellent enabler in this respect. Structured frameworks are considered a direct approach to the problem of cognitive load. Scaffolding ensures that everyone has the same base of knowledge and method of approach, providing consistency across teams.
An effective framework helps to generate learning and create new pathways in how to manage responsibilities, allowing the focus to shift from simply delivering to improving. It means reducing unnecessary cognitive efforts, or to put it another way, going to the route of the problem and supporting your managers to get real headspace and a chance to focus on their people. By reducing the burden to working memory we are able to become more cognitively efficient.
When we talk about accidental managers and managers who are not managing, lack of appropriate management training and skills are often cited as the cause. Therefore, if we are going to successfully tackle poor people management, we need overcome another, fundamental blocker which is frequently overlooked. HR teams have got out into the business, holding two way conversations and workshops with managers.
Successful organisations have built up momentum over time — spending time engaging key stakeholders and influencers in the organisation and running small pilots with advocates to prove that the new approach works.
Think of the change as a journey and not a destination. Getting the senior leadership on board early on in the journey is key. When we are busy and have conflicting pressures on us, most of us will naturally prioritise what we are held accountable for. How you do this will vary depending on the culture of your organisation.
Others have set mandatory objectives for people managers, or set targets around people management expectations. It might seem counter-intuitive that if we want to encourage more meaningful conversations between managers and employees, that we should be using technology. But as we will explore in the next chapter, using the right technology is key to successfully embedding management effective people management behaviours.
In the case of supporting ongoing people management practices, technology designed for this purpose can provide visibility on which managers are and are not having regular conversations with their team and how frequently they are giving feedback. This is essential not only for identifying where interventions are needed but also for creating accountability. Fogg, the Director of the Behaviour Design Lab at Stanford University has developed a model to understand what drives our actions as humans.
But to fulfill the Ability and Trigger elements of this formula, we need technology. Without these triggers e. With this in mind, consider the steps a manager might take in preparing for a one to one check-in conversation without dedicated technology to help them. So much so that only the most motivated of managers will do this regularly.
Contrast this with the process of preparing for a check-in conversation using Clear Review. The same goes for giving feedback. If you provide technology to employees that enables them to give feedback in-the-moment in a couple of taps from their mobile phone, they will be much more likely to do it. We assess how your organisation is performing against our framework. We advise you on how to improve over time. This will enable you to understand your performance in the Leading, Supporting and Improving areas of the framework, comparing against other companies in your industry.
