    Show #127: Repositioning Employee Engagement

    in Business

    Special Guests: Andy Heath, co-founder of WeThrive; Piers Bishop, co-founder of WeThrive and Janine Osmond, Head of L&D at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

    At WeThrive we spend our working lives talking to people whose lot is to create or maintain an engaged workforce. They don’t always put it like that – the expressed desire might be to have a happy staff, or to improve employee retention, but what they actually want in the end is a workforce that really wants to engage with the company and their work. That doesn’t just happen, of course; it’s a consequence of getting a lot of other things right, so since 2011 we have been working on a way to help HR and L&D people move employee engagement out of the realm of ‘good idea, but…’ and into the very heart of the people-management efforts.

    Janine is in the ‘interesting’ position of trying to help NHS staff stay engaged with their work at a time when the organisation is under more pressure than ever to deliver more with less, and we’d very much like to hear from you too – please email us with questions or topics you’d like covered on the show, starting at 5.15 on September 7th.

    How to define employee performance standards

    in Business

    One of the most common areas of frustration in the workplace is lack of performance feedback.  Employees want to know how they're doing on the job but managers aren't giving feedback because they don't know where to start so they delay, avoid, or just don't do it.  Too many leaders are making this way more difficult than it needs to be.  It doesn't need to be difficult when you follow a simple model.

    Top 5 reasons you need to listen to this episode:

    You can develop your leadership skills in just 15 minutes
    Giving feedback isn't difficult when you know where to start
    The better you get at giving feedback the more valuable you become
    Employee engagement increases when employees know how they're doing
    The #1 Reason... what you learn will make your job so much easier!

    The Power of Healthy Habits & Best Practices for Employee Communication

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field welcome special guests from WellRight and GuideSpark to the program to discuss trends and best practices in workplace wellness, employee engagement and more.

    For the first segment, the hosts welcome two guests from WellRight – Tad Mitchell, president and CEO, and Michael Guercio, content manager – to discuss their newly published book on workplace wellness. Co-authors Michael and Tad set off on a journey to figure out what makes people healthy. Their goal was to cut through today’s information overload and create a concise list of what is most important. Along the way, they discovered the power of habits. The result is a remarkably fresh and simple approach to wellness. In this interview, Michael and Tad will share the highlights of their journey and explain how their approach to wellness works.

    For the second segment, the hosts talk with Keith Kitani, CEO and co-founder of GuideSpark. The choices surrounding health care and benefits can be particularly tricky for employees; the industry jargon and sheer volume of the materials associated with benefits are often overwhelming. Yet, as benefits continue to be a differentiating factor for many organizations, in terms of attracting new talent and retaining current employees, employers must be able to simplify these often complicated topics and ensure their employees are well educated on the options available. Figuring out how best to communicate complex information in a way that enables employees and their families to identify and enroll in the best options is key to creating an engaged, satisfied, healthy and productive workforce.
