Winning with a Culture of Recognition: Recognition Strategies at the World's Most Admired Companie

Employee engagement is the great, untapped resource of most organizations. Yet only 25% of employees are truly engaged in their work. Why are all the others so reluctant to "get in the game"? WINNING WITH A CULTURE OF RECOGNITION: Recognition Strategies at the World's Most Admired Companies reveals the surprising answer: Most managers fail to formally recognize high performance and connect it with company culture.

Strategic Internal Communication: How to Build Employee Engagement and Performance

A 2012 State of the Sector survey compiled by Gatehouse, in conjunction with the Institute of Internal Communication, reveals that improving leadership communication has emerged as a top priority, with 60% of respondents naming it as their main focus over the next 12 months. While decisions made by management may be perfectly rational, poor communication can leave employees confused, worried or disinterested. This can directly impact the levels of engagement and performance across an organization. Strategic Internal Communication offers a holistic approach to building engagement, performance and cultural integration. It looks at the relation between the traditional silos of internal organizational communication, HR and employee engagement and demonstrates how communication is a key factor in breaking down barriers. Using the Dialogue Box approach, an efficient framework for assessing the needs and impact of internal communications, it allows managers and leaders to understand the emotions of their company and how this links to the ways employees interpret events and information. Available from Amazon.

<i>The Enemy of Engagement</i>: Put an End to Workplace Frustration--and Get the Most from Your Employees

Frustrated employees represent 20% or more of the total workforce, leading to a major loss in performance, talent and revenue. Frustration wears down motivated, dedicated employees who really care about their jobs but can’t get the organizational support they need to get things done. Focused on making contributions, these employees often hide their frustration, leaving managers in the dark about their discontent. “Frustrated employees really want to succeed in their role, but become aggravated by organizational barriers or a lack of resources,” says Mark Royal, Senior Consultant at Hay Group and co-author of the new book The Enemy of Engagement. “Managers must ask the right questions and address the issue promptly, or risk losing top talent who care deeply about the organization.” Royal’s co-author and colleague, Tom Agnew, says that frustration isn’t just an employee issue, it’s an organizational issue, adding that “Managers must listen for clues and serve as the voice for frustrated employees.” For more information on The Enemy of Engagement, contact Andrea Friedman at 212-584-5476 or Andrea@blisspr.com

<i>The Engagement Equation</i>: Leadership Strategies for an Inspired Workforce

New Book Explores the Engagement Equation: One sign that engagement has emerged as a formal field is the proliferation of books published on the subject over the last few years. The latest, The Engagement Equation: Leadership Strategies for an Inspired Workforce, by BlessingWhite consultants Chrisopher Rice, Fraser Marlow and Mary Ann Masarech, and published by Wiley, focuses specifically on how to infuse engagement throughout your managerial and organizational culture. A fundamental premise of the book is that “you can’t actually make employees engaged. Engagement is fundamentally an individualized equation. What might make one person engaged might turn off the person in the next cubical.” The authors stress the link between “maximum engagement and maximum contribution…” – i.e., the importance of continually linking engagement to organizational results. The book stresses the importance of finding a common definition for engagement and a way of talking about it in the organization; focusing as much on individuals as on global trends or indices; making engagement a priority and shared responsibility so that everyone has a stake in the process; making sure management is as engaged as employees are expected to be; and how to map out an overall plan that provides a clear direction and vision, open communication and realistic ROI measurement tools. They caution that surveys tools should be used to diagnose issues rather that simply as a “prize.” Click here to view a video by the authors.
