Employee Engagement is a Two-Way Street

If you as an employee don't like the level of engagement within your organization, go out and make some of your own! You may find your boss responds pretty positively to such initiative, and would welcome the chance to work with you to guide it in productive directions. You may find fellow employees following your lead, too.

The Last Mile of Employee Engagement is the Hardest to Travel

Organizations are pretty darn good at launching new initiatives, and sharing vision. They have (by now) recognized that clear, transparent communication of the mission is a cornerstone of employee engagement. Building trust and valuing truth in all its forms also get thumbs-up from senior managers. Yet, the high levels of employee engagement that an enterprise needs to materially improve productivity remain elusive. Why? In our experience, it is while traveling “the last mile of employee engagement,” all the way down to the point where the products are made and services delivered, that the initiatives run out of gas.

Leadership Development Gaps Expose a Lack of Strategic Commitment

We close leadership gaps here at Bovo-Tighe. Our experience tells us that one big leadership gap is found in the way organizations foster leadership.

OSHA Discloses Most Common Workplace Hazards – The List Remains the Same

OSHA violations point to areas of lapse in the safety regimes of organizations nationwide. The annual release of the top cited violations can guide any company to go look for areas of improvement. Our point is, make sure to start with the employees involved. They will have better solutions already in mind than the managers involved, and are probably sitting on them and not sharing because these employees are not fully engaged in the company's mission. Safety records improve almost magically once an organization truly emphasizes employee engagement.

Lean Manufacturing Demands Fully Engaged Employees

A case study about GE Appliances by the Lean Enterprise Institute highlights the critical need for intensive employee engagement to make process improvement work. All players in a successful enterprise (Sales, Executives, Operations, et al.) can create an organization that better meets the needs of its target customers through constant and intensive collaboration. We have seen this work time and again. Why more organizations don't engage with their talent base boggles our mind.

Gallup Employee Engagement Results Not Budging

Gallup's latest global survey results confirm that organizations have done a poor job of moving the needle on employee engagement, even with the measurable gains in productivity obtainable by investing in better engagement. This is a leadership gap that best-in-class enterprises use to their competitive advantage: Engaged employees contribute at higher levels than their peers at competitors, so investments in raising engagement have real ROI!
