“Making it everyone’s business” – Objective 5

Over the next 5 weeks, we will be sharing our experiences in working with organisations to develop and review employee engagement strategies using our framework of “making it everyone’s business.”

Organisations of all sizes and sectors have achieved substantial benefits working with our framework.

We previously indicated that the framework consisted of 5 objectives that form the basis of our “partnership” with the organisation.

Objective 5 : SHARED INFORMATION

(employee engagement lever = future orientation)

Stage 1: Starting out

We set about surveying the effectiveness of communication in the organisation, how consultation works at a team level and what good habits and behaviours exist.

Stage 2: Our Interventions

We create the opportunity to agree with the organisation:

1. How the structure of employee participation works – where are the opportunities created

2. How employees are “taught” to contribute ideas

3. How employees are “taught” more widely about their organisation

We develop a plan to increase effective communication

Stage 3: Continuous development

We create a development strategy that seeks to stimulate:

1. Freedom of information to enable the delegation of decisions

2. To measure the extent to which each individual is truly a “knowledgeable worker”

3. To further enhance a climate where the team is the organisation

Over the last 5 weeks, we have shared our experiences in working with organisations to develop and review employee engagement strategies using our framework of “making it everyone’s business.”

Organisations of all sizes and sectors have achieved substantial benefits working with our framework.

Employee engagement is much more than reviewing a set of mathematical formulae from a survey and ticking a few boxes, hopefully watching your scores rise! Useful monitoring, but is it really helping your business?

So what is our framework?

It consists of 5 objectives that form the basis of our “partnership” with the organisation. We have explained our work in more detail in the last 5 weeks, with these 5 objectives focusing on:

1. SHARED DIRECTION …… “understanding the business we are in and want to be in”

2. SHARED CULTURE …… “agreeing our values and the good habits that bind us together”

3. SHARED LEARNING ……”how we continuously learn to improve ourselves”

4. SHARED EFFORT ……”developing one organisation driven by flexible teams”

5. SHARED INFORMATION ……”developing effective communication throughout the organisation”
