  • The Future of Work is Flexible

    The Future of Work is Flexible

    There’s no question about it – employees expect flexibility in their work environment. Now more than ever organizations must evaluate how work is done, how to support the varying needs of their workforce, and how to expand their talent pipeline. Having been globally and universally tested throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that […]

  • Transitioning Back or Transforming Forward?

    Transitioning Back or Transforming Forward?

    When we look for a job or evaluate our decision to stay in a role, we often start with a list of what we want and need: a short commute, a flexible schedule, an opportunity to contribute to a meaningful mission, or a people-first culture. Over the years, we develop an understanding of the things […]

  • Why You Should Listen Differently in 2021

    Why You Should Listen Differently in 2021

    What hasn’t changed as a result of 2020? Not much. The way we work, how we connect with others and pretty much every element of ‘the employee experience’ is in the process of being redefined. It’s not surprising then that our listening strategy – including how we listen, when we tune in, and what we measure […]

  • Engaged to Death

    Engaged to Death

    While we evangelize the long established and numerous benefits of employee engagement, there is a dark side to engagement – burnout. Initially, researchers believed engagement and burnout were opposite sides of the same pancake; however, there is strong evidence that burnout and engagement are related but distinct forms of well-being (e.g., Shaufeli, Taris, & Rhenen, […]

  • Change “Don’t” Goals into “Do Something” Goals

    Change “Don’t” Goals into “Do Something” Goals

    Many of us are working on personal and professional goals, especially at the turn of a new year. I hear people saying all the time they have goals like, “I am going to stop running late,” “I’m going to drink less,” or “I’m going to quit getting derailed by email.” These are fine intentions, but […]

  • Should Pay Be a Part of the Employee Engagement Conversation?

    Should Pay Be a Part of the Employee Engagement Conversation?

    Do you ask questions about compensation on your employee engagement survey? If so, you may want to reconsider. Our research (and loads of others’) suggests that compensation is important for recruiting high quality candidates, securing job offers, and nudging people to pursue promotions (Cable, 2013). Pay does not, however, drive employee engagement. So if it’s […]

  • To Survey or Not to Survey, That is the Question…

    To Survey or Not to Survey, That is the Question…

    To survey, or not to survey; that seems to be the question every year as budgets are slashed and organizations are looking for ways to save money and drive bottom line growth. I always find this dilemma typically exists only in those organizations where the voice of the employee is not equal to the voice […]

  • Do You Want to be Remarkable?

    Do You Want to be Remarkable?

    Remarkable—according to Merriam-Webster the term remarkable means unusual or surprising, likely to be noticed. Yet the very act of striving to be remarkable is a contradiction to our research regarding remarkable leaders. Being noticed is hardly a characteristic of a leader that is admired, followed and held in esteem in our discussions with thousands of […]
