POSITIVE WORK ENVIRONMENT
Creating a Positive Work Environment
High engagement companies understand the need to build a flexible, humane, and inclusive workplace.
Most employees today have complicated lives. Studies show that 68 percent of women would rather have more free time than make more money, while 40 percent of professional men work more than 50 hours per week, 80 percent would like to work fewer hours.
“Teams that operate in an inclusive culture outperform their peers by a staggering 80 percent. While 71 percent of organizations try to foster diversity and inclusion, only 11 percent have such an environment today. Even worse, only 23 percent hold their CEOs accountable for building a diverse and inclusive environment; instead, leadership often delegates this work to Human Resources." ~ Deloitte Study on Engagement 2017
Supportive Work Environment
Given the nature of work today, if leaders want people to engage with their organizations, they have to give them a flexible and supportive work environment.
Continuous and Ongoing Recognition
“High-recognition companies” have 31 percent lower voluntary turnover than companies with poor recognition cultures. These companies build a culture of recognition through social reward systems.
Diversity and Inclusion
Highly engaged workplaces are inclusive and diverse: People feel comfortable being themselves. Diversity and inclusion is not an HR strategy; it is a business strategy. Not only do diverse workplaces attract people from a wider sample, research also shows that companies who operate in an inclusive culture outperform their peers by a staggering 80 percent. ~ Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, 2012
