The absence of a comprehensive people strategy and the inability of organisations to consistently invest enough time in their workforce is invariably at the heart of people challenges. Consequently some 70% of teams are considered to be “dysfunctional” and 85% of employees claim to be “dis-engaged” with their organisation.
All too often organisations;
- Fail to invest in developing management and leadership capabilities
- Are unclear on their organisational Vision / Values & Purpose
- Fail to develop robust recruitment systems to assess both “skills” & “fit”
- Forget to develop robust Key Performance Indicators & Key Activity Indicators by role
- Fail to invest time in high quality employee communication
According to Gallup, teams with high levels of engagement who have tackled their people challenges are 21% more productive.
When people challenges go unresolved they impact on businesses in a number of ways – staff acquisition and retention can be challenging, business culture can become negative and sometimes even toxic which in turn impacts on employee engagement, consistency and quality of service delivery, client retention and ultimately, business performance and results.
