    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!

    Podcast: What All the Performance Management Changes Mean for Total Rewards Team

    in Business

    In the past year nearly 50 percent of companies have considered eliminating performance evaluations and 85 percent of them, say HR professionals, are seeking to simplify the performance management process. This shift has a significant impact on how compensation and benefits managers determine employee incentives.


    Consequently those that run compensation and benefits functions, or "total rewards" as it's often known, should focus on three priorities in particular this year.


    1    Pay-for performance initiatives and how total rewards leaders reward employees when performance management ratings are being eliminated.


    2    Return on investment in the total rewards function, and ensuring that HR teams working on the projects that will have the greatest impact on employee retention and engagement.


    3    Setting forward-looking quarterly goals that focus on skill development, and aligning rewards with that development, instead of looking back and rewarding past performance; something that typically occurs with an annual review.



    Monique McCloud-Manley, practice leader of the CEB Total Rewards Leadership Council, discusses these trends and how total rewards professionals should respond.

    Keys To High-Performance: Vision and Mission

    in Entrepreneur

    If you’re an entrepreneur, leader or someone who knows your purpose in life, you’ve likely heard the term ‘vision’ once or twice. Indeed, the most high-performing individuals in the world from all walks of life can be thought of as “visionaries” on some capacity.

    But what does vision really mean? And what is the difference between vision and a mission? More importantly, how do you create a vision for yourself…and share it with others?


    In this series, called Keys To High-Performance, we explore the characteristics and disciplines of elite performers and how YOU can implement them into your business and life.


    In this episode, we explore Vision, and its relationship to Mission. Having a vision (and a mission) and being dialed into every day is a massive key to your success.


    Join JT for a deep-dive discussion on how to craft a vision you can commit your entire life to.
