How to engage employees as shiftHappens (MMP#19)

Employee Engagement: Monday Morning Percolator #19

Have you thought about how the world and work is changing and what this means to employees, leaders and organizations who want to foster and maintain high levels of employee engagement?

I encourage you to view these 67 slides on change – shiftHappens:

[slideshare id=33834&doc=shift-happens-23665&w=425]

After viewing the slides what are you thoughts and ideas about fostering employee engagement?

Here are a few of my thoughts:

  • Maybe being one in a million is not such a big thing.
  • How unique are we and how much do we experience a sense of entitlement?
  • How do we keep people engaged as they work in so many different jobs over their careers?
  • We need to look beyond Canada and the United States to see what is going on. We need to look beyond today to know how to respond. We can look at history to notice that the landscape of work has changed. Are we open to changing approaches to employee engagement? For example, when you look at how engaged people are with text messaging are you creating a method to make use of this medium to enhance employee engagement?
  • 50% of the workforce has worked for their company for less than 5 years. What does this mean for commitment and engagement?
  • Are you visiting one of the largest countries —- MySpace?
  • Looking at another type of engagement: 1 in 8 couples married last year in the United States met online. What are your methods to meet online with employees to foster employee and workplace engagement.

Now that you have focused on shiftHappens, how are you going to apply it to employee engagement?

As things keep shifting we need good questions much more than ready made answers.
