Job satisfaction survey results – not good!
The CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) has released their latest survey on employee engagement in the UK and there are no real surprises.
Attitudes and trust in senior management seems to be at an all time low, and largely due to poor communication during the redundancy consultation process. Download the free report here.
Employee engagement is really quite simple – so why can't organisations get it right? It comes down to 2 behaviours – transparency and communication. Studies on the science behind human motivation show that humans are motivated in the workplace by 3 main things – autonomy, mastery of their role and purpose. Money comes stone last.
By not communicating and being transparent, the 3 key employee motivators are directly impacted. Rumours, meetings behind closed doors, a CEO that no longer walks the floor and looks employees in the eye are interpreted as BAD news. The normal Open Door of a senior manager, slams shut in the face of adversity as they only want to hear good news, not any news.
It's tough being on both sides of the door. So why not reach out for expert advice on how to manage redundancy as positively as possible?
