An Even Better Place to WorkTM is not management information to be digested but experiences which bring about transformation. This means you will get results immediately. It doesn’t just talk about openness, trust and collaboration but enables you to create these realities. It doesn’t talk about ownership but provides a structure and an approach so your people will put themselves at cause and make things happen.
People transformation will be at the heart of your company's transformation. By changing the culture at micro levels (one to one) An Even Better Place to WorkTM moves across teams and eventually impacts on your entire company. This is in contrast with most company initiatives that start from without – management defining the culture, communicating this to their colleagues and then hoping to get the transfer to behaviours. Initiatives often fail because they are seen to be meeting the agenda of management or the company rather than the interest of the individual. An Even Better Place to WorkTM will appeal to the self-interest of your people and hence its long term sustainability and success.
A weakness with many company initiatives is their dependency on external agencies. Take away this support and the initiative falters. An Even Better Place to WorkTM is owned by your company and your people, not by external consultants or trainers. From the moment of registration, every step is delivered internally by your people. Team members run activities, teams decide on the modules and frequency of meetings and your people take ownership for improving their Satisfaction @ Work scores.
An Even Better Place to WorkTM is incremental and developmental. Your people can progress from Level 1, through Level 2 and Level 3, to Level 4. It begins as a programme that impacts on attitudes and behaviours and then converts to a business tool for people excellence which allows you to maintain what has been created. This ensures the changes to attitudes and behaviours of your people are sustained. They embed and become part of the DNA of your organisation.
An Even Better Place to WorkTM bypasses the problem that companies can give themselves by going down the training route i.e. how to translate the knowledge into workable practice. Rather than give your people lots of good theory An Even Better Place to WorkTM is the tool that gets you results. It is the car, rather then the theory of the internal combustion engine. You can hire the car and when you arrive at your destination and get the results you want, just hand the keys back!
Evidence shows that running a culture programme in a tight time frame, creates a critical mass of awareness and of skilled people which sustains these new ways of working. As An Even Better Place to WorkTM is an on-line, self service system, it is ideally placed to roll out across large populations and allow you to create a simultaneous awareness, mindset and skills. This is just not possible with a more traditional ‘teaching’ approach. This on-line approach also allows the programme to be highly cost effective. Not only will your financial costs be minimal but the ‘time-out’ cost per employee is marginal, allowing your business to keep functioning.
Companies can create problems for themselves by how they go about change. Managers can run a staff satisfaction survey and then give themselves the problem of what to do with the results. The ways forward suggested by management are often rejected. People usually don’t take care of a rented car, because it does not belong to them, they don’t own it. Unless people are engaged and involved expect them to be compliant but not committed to the change. By engaging your staff, An Even Better Place to WorkTM will enable you to retain your people and get the best from them. As you roll out the programme, your people will develop a strong sense of connection to your company, its people, leaders, mission and business. You will be creating a culture of shared values and vision.
