This article reminds us of the 4 most important employee concepts to take into consideration when building an exceptional organization and workforce: motivation, connection, values, and corporate culture.
In our daily routine, it’s easy to lose sight of their importance. I personally fall into this trap, and employee needs often get pushed aside to meet client deliverables. Without a strong bench of talent, client deliverables won’t matter. Taking time each day to focus on your employees is critical in ensuring that they feel like humans, and not just resources. This means that each successful organization must have a successful internal mobility and succession planning program to decrease turnover. It further requires the relationship with clients has to center at the people vs process mindset. We all grow together.
Regardless of the framework an organization uses to design a humanistic workforce experience, the process must start with and stay centered on the worker. Organizations need to listen to their workers, be empathetic, and build a deep understanding of their work and what they need from the organization to enable success.
