Sharing an Employer's Core Values is Leading Driver to Boost Employee Engagement
A personal commitment to an employer's core values is the top driver of employee engagement. "Employee engagement is the basis for organizational effectiveness and directly impacts productivity and performance," said Deborah Schroeder-Saulnier, Senior Vice President for Global Solutions at Right Management.
A personal commitment to an employer's core values is the top driver of employee engagement among 91 possible factors analyzed by Right Management in a new global study. The top three factors also include pride in the company's products and services, as well as a belief that an employee's opinions count. Right Management is the talent and career management expert within Manpower, the global leader in employment services.
Right Management surveyed over 28,000 employees across 15 countries to determine the relative correlations between high engagement and a wide range of what are considered key dynamics or influencers.
What strikes me most is that the leading factors are all very personal and relate to the employee's sense of belonging to the organization and having an opportunity to participate and contribute in a real way Top Five Global Engagement Drivers
1. I am committed to my organization's core values
2. Our customers think highly of our products and services
3. My opinions count
4. I have a clear understanding of what is expected of me at work
5. I understand how I can contribute to meeting the needs of our customers
Avoid Caregiver Burnout with 10 Tips from LifeCare
In recognition of November's designation as National Family Caregivers Month, LifeCare, Inc. is offering the following 10 tips to help caregivers overcome the exhaustion, guilt and frustration that may lead to "caregiver burnout."
1. Taking care of yourself is essential to taking good care of your loved one, so get enough rest, eat well and exercise as often as possible.
2. Lighten your burden by sharing the care responsibilities with family members and friends who offer to help. This is not a sign of failure or weakness.
3. Being good to yourself makes you a better caregiver, so treat yourself to a good book, a dinner out or some other enjoyable activity from time to time.
4. Forgive yourself when things don't go exactly as planned. Losing your patience, getting angry or being critical of yourself or your loved one is a waste of precious energy. And maintaining a sense of humor is equally important.
5. Combat stress by joining a support group. If it's difficult for you to get out, join an online caregiving forum.
6. Encourage your loved one to be as self-sufficient as realistically possible. Too many caregivers overwork themselves by trying to "do it all" for their loved ones.
7. Recognize the warning signs that you're stressed or out of balance. These signs can include new physical illnesses; becoming irritable, anxious or depressed; and overeating, drinking more alcohol, using illegal drugs or abusing prescription medications. Recognize your own warning signs and take action.
8. If family members, friends or co-workers express concern over your physical appearance or your mental state, listen to them. Get assistance from your doctor or a support group, if necessary.
9. Speak to your employer about your role as a caregiver and find out if you have access to employee assistance programs or support systems that will help you manage your situation and your loved one's needs more effectively.
10. Consider professional care if your duties become overwhelming or if you feel uncomfortable continuing to provide care. There are many professional care options to assist you, including adult day care centers, home care, respite care and alternative living arrangements.
