Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is the hot topic in the world of human resource management and for a good reason. The employee turnover is quite high in comparison to the employee engaged in the company.Is it only giving a cozy and luxurious work environment too the employees ? or is more than that ?
Does the beer and free lunches and other ping pong still fascinates the employees or we need to offer more?
Is it employees look for recognition and free coupons?
I believe that concept of employee engagement in only constrained to providing free services rather than improving the employee experience in the organisation. Engaging the employee in organisation is now a herculean task for an human resource manager and i believe an important too. The  need of an hour is to understand the true essence of the term. John Sylvester- ” Employee Engagement describes when an organization encourages employee to buy in to their goals, ambitions and corporate ethos in a way that will inspire them to want to drive the business forward proactively and generate organisational success”.

Employee engagement is earning the loyalty of the employees and increasing the productivity and job satisfaction bringing meaningful learning and development opportunities to your organisation . I tried to figure out some effective ways to launch learning and development initiative:

  1. Promote in-house mentor-ship and coaching programs.
  2. Make on-line education an employee benefit
  3. Regularly tracing the employee engagement and job satisfaction.
  4. Train new managers to lead, manage and give frequent feedback.
  5. Treat employees like customers.

It is time to improve the employee experience first and then focus on improving the customer satisfaction . As stated by Shep Hyken

“If we constantly exceed the exceptional of employee, they will consistently exceed the expectation of our customers”.

Would love to have discussion. Follow the blog and comment.

I CHERISH

I actually felt it will be lot easy to talk about the topic which is close to my heart but it turned out to be extremely difficult one to write those moments. OK for my part I want to share an experience today which broke me in pieces, shook me but again gave courage to struggle. It is a story of a girl and her parents who were forced to be a victim of dowry and her pregnant daughter was thrown out of the house because it was the female  infanticide she was living with. We always talk about the amount of pain a girl has to bear when she is the real victim of the sorrow. But the bitter fact is the pain lies equally with the family of the girl. It’s tough to watch the dry eyes of the parents looking for a better life for her daughter. It is hard to raise a hurt little girl to an independent strong mother. It is even harsh when society tries to judge you. The reason told by the society is, you are a WOMAN, unfortunately. But the best part is, in all this chaos in her life, the girl had her family who stood right beside her, a family which is going to be there in all your goods and bad. We were so closely bonded that there wasn’t a micro space of particle. That bonding, love and affection made me strong and helped me raise my voice which is not shivering anymore. Those moments taught me how to handle a broken father, an old mother, a lost sister and raise your new born niece flowering with all the love of a mother. It also taught me that revenge is a waste of energy, all you need to have is good deeds and belief that everything will fall in place.
One thing I do want to mention here before concluding that I wants culprits to be behind bars but till then I can still cherish a new life among my family, I can cherish to be more stronger than I thought I could be .

A women represents a family, a society and an unbreakable idol. Our society still might be full of dirt and black hole but it’s our duty as a woman to behold our dignity and never back down.

To everyone, I expect you to cherish this special power we all have inside to be greater than what we think we are, before someone tries to break you. We all have it in us. When things falling apart, we see ourselves becoming stronger if we just never give up.

Personality-We Admire

F.Scott Fitzgerald- Personality is an unbroken senses of successfull gestures.

Imitating our favourite actors and actresses was our best act we did as child.But have we ever gave a deep thought about why do we imitate someone ?.The answer is quite translucent, we love the aura,the personality of the person whom we admire.It is our thoughts,feelings and behaviour towards others are some common traits which distinguishes us from the bunch of people.And that’s how we stand as an individual.Crux of the above short lines is in order to stand out from herd we need to groom our personality or in simple terms “Personality Development“.

Personality development is nothing but the act  of moving from an inert and disinterested state of existence to a zelous,motivated and joyous one.It is how you celebrate your uniqueness without any boundaries,but only with positive inertia amd enthusiasm to conquer the world.

Tips to improve:

  1. Proton Test: Science has proved that no element can change the basic characteristic of proton i.e “Positive”.Similarly all you need to do is to stay positive in worst situations too.
  2. To talk or not to talk: Choose your words nicely. These words are the crucial player in your personality because they represent your thoughts and attitude.Thus improve your communication skills.
  3. All ears open: Our teachers must have scolded everyone atleast once for not listening. Listening not only gives you enough time to evaluate other persom thought process but also leaves a positive impact of valuing others talk. So bring in practice and be a good listener.
  4. Learn to Appreciate: As a head or team member you should not take all the credit alone. Appreciating your team members enhances their zeal and dedication towards work.
  5. A lion: You need to learn to be a lion i.e “Strong” in any situation .Because if you are the leader and you yourself looses a hope, it becomes difficult to manage a group amd you fail miserably.So act smart and strong.

Personality development includes other aspects also such as being compassionate, sharing responsibilties etc.But as wisely said all the qualties cannot be imbibed in one go.It is an ever evolving process but important is you never stop.

A.EinsteinTry not to become a man of success,but rather try to become a man of value.

Does words really matter?

I was wondering one day that is it really possible if i was deaf and dumb and my husband would understand even my deepest thoughts.That was the time I rushed from my living area to my bedroom to fetch some papers and pen and designed a foolproof game.Where i was the one who played the victim as always and he was to understand my thoughts.A long one hour we spent playing ,cuddling and finally the conclusion was yes, he could understand my thoughts.The results were not just because he love me but because my non verbal communicating power were too strong.The same kind of game is played in the interview room .Where interview is a game amd you are being judged as a victim.You keep  practicising on formulating the best answer for each question but what yoy forget is to practice your body language.

As wise man has said your eyes speaks the truth .Your body language expresses your nervousness or your excitement.So while we are busy preparing our question answer round, why not to spare some 15 minutes to improve our non verbal communication.There are thousands of books and online tests available to improve your gestures and most important thr facial expressions.Girls gear up your smile can be the answer to many unknown questions amd boys dnt be disheartened your charming eyes will help you to create the powrful impact.

Some of the tips even I am mentioning here.

  • Look engaged with a pleasant smile on your face.
  • Do not open your eyes wide to make an eye contact.Soften your eyes to make them look natural.
  • Practice at home in front of mirror.Yes the old method but somehow it helps a lot.
  • Figure out your reactions when you are nervous.May be chewing nails, eyes blinking,rubbing nose etc.Work on those areas.
  • Lift your eyebrows a little, just to ensure that you are having an interesting conversation.

There are endless methods through which you can improvise your non verbal communication.Because words are always the later stage, you connect through your body.The above story was may be enteratining but it has a sense.We connect through our eyes, gestures and positive feel.

Learn,Practice and Improvise.
