Systems or Engagement?

By October 22, 2019 May 6th, 2020 No Comments

No matter how sophisticated your HRIS or Accounting Systems are, you can only be truly successful if your people are fully committed, fulfilled and aligned with your organisational goals.

Yet, I never cease to be amazed at the number of times I hear “Employee engagement is a priority for next year because we are implementing a payroll system this year.” This highlights that too many senior managers are still failing to understand the importance of employee performance and what it can do for a business when staff commitment is harnessed and aligned with the goals of the organisation

It’s not difficult to do both at the same time, and focussing on staff will deliver real business benefits.

Employee engagement strategies can be developed along side any technological upgrade.

It has been proven that companies excel when their teams and individuals are committed to the companies shared values and goals, as they work to their strengths, realise their potential and deliver discretionary effort.

It follows that every 1% you can improve employee engagement your organisation will be repaid many times over, through reduced staff turnover, greater staff satisfaction, fewer sick days, greater productivity, improved safety, increased innovation and cost saving initiatives and greater customer interaction.

A policy of positive recognition, with or without rewards, given sincerely and in a timely manner will have a positive impact on your bottom line, and costs little in terms of time and money to implement.
