Creating Sustainable Programs That Last
Addressing cultural problems in an organization can be challenging and require a lot of hands-on work. Employee engagement surveys often times fall flat as they lack specific information, aren't solution oriented and don't individualize the experience to the employee. In 2018, I created a series of workshops after results of an engagement survey and revamped the organizational culture starting with our Golden Rules.
Not only did employees have the change to identify solutions and initiatives they would like to see within the business but each employee took away a post-it with one thing they will do differently to support this new culture starting today.
Management was briefed, trained and held monthly meetings to discuss results and actions towards the new culture and way of life.
To re-humanize the workforce, we need to define the criteria that we hold each other accountable to. The following year surveys showed significant improvement and retention increased.
NEXT Career Boot Camp
Launched the very first NEXT Career Boot Camp which has been successfully running for a decade with program owners empowered to change the content yearly to meet needs of the employee resource group.
The very first boot camp featured weekly meetings and worksheets for career mind mapping, career road mapping, personal SWOT analysis, feedback, 90 day focus maps and a personality test. Each year, I provide coaching to the leaders to determine the content and guest speak.
