What are the benefits of being a People First Organization?
As a leader in your organization you may be asking, “Why should my organization become People First certified?”
The answer is simple.
- Employee engagement is not optional; it is an essential requirement for achieving long-term, sustainable success.
- Employee engagement goes hand-in-hand with higher job satisfaction, better productivity, and lower turnover.
- Engaged employees outperform their disengaged counterparts by 20-28%.
The real question is...
How can you afford NOT to be People First certified?
Are You Spending Resources on Programs That Don’t Engage Your Entire Company?
How employees feel about leadership lies at the heart of their level of engagement. It is essential to understand how employees feel about how they are treated. Do they respect their leaders? Can they trust leadership to do the right thing?
Let’s look at the facts.
Only 29% of employees say they are fully engaged in their work. Imagine where your organization would be at 100%.
19% are actively disengaged, unhappy and spreading discontent in your organization. How did they become this way?
Only 28% of employees believe their CEO is a credible source of information.
52% are unengaged, simply putting in the time. Imagine if your employees were fully invested in your mission.
62% of leaders report leadership quality in their organization is low.
Nearly one in three employees is unhappy and currently wants to leave the company.
Change your statistics. Change your culture. People First is your solution.
Trust is the new currency for creating healthy and profitable work environments. With the new currency you can purchase commitment, engagement, laser focus, productivity, fast results, and fulfillment … all key essentials for creating a People First Culture, and a healthy top and bottom line.
People First is a results-driven, people-centric program that takes a real look at the detriments of employee disengagement and implements a course of action to radically transition your organization into one
thriving with purpose and profitability.
There are multiple factors that can inhibit culture cohesiveness and productivity. One enormous factor in employee disengagement is lack of communication. People First assess your current communication procedures and develops the most effective program for clear messaging throughout your company, combating what is often known as “silo sickness”.
People First … A Cure for “Silo Sickness”
The Business Dictionary defines the Silo Mentality as, “A mind-set present in some companies when certain
departments or sectors do not wish to share information with others in the same company. This type of mentality will reduce the efficiency of the overall operation, reduce morale, and may contribute to the demise of a productive company.”
The cry from leaders coming out of the C-suite from corporate America, is “how can our organization achieve a sustainable competitive advantage?” One vital competency that leadership must master to achieve this sustainability goal is to learn how to lead across organizational boundaries so that their organization consistently operates as one, seamless, unified team and not like a field of disconnected silos.
To underscore the pervasive nature of this silo mentality and its debilitating consequences on corporations the American Management Association reported that 83% of executives stated that silos existed in their companies. Moreover, 97% believed that these silo’s had a negative effect on their businesses.
A People First culture of caring communication, compelling cooperation, and consistent collaboration will
produce abundance and concurrently eliminate all silos sickness in your organization. Furthermore, this
seamless, one-team culture will foster a cohesive, Purpose Partner, mentality. And, this new purpose partner, collaborative mentality, will unite your organization around common, company-wide goals, mission and vision that will enable everyone to see how their departments individual efforts effectively contributes to the systemic success of the whole organization and ultimately accomplishes your business results and makes
your competition irrelevant.
