Leadership will impact employee experience now more than ever

first_imgCan managers build connections with employees, manage performance, communicate messages and give recognition remotely?  Are there differences in how teams or departments work that could allow for unique return-to-work plans?  How we return our people to our offices and branches will be one of the most important employee engagement activities this year. Not only will our re-entry impact the bottom line, it will also impact our engagement survey scores, employees’ decisions to stay or look for other opportunities, and how they share their experience with members and prospective hires. So, as leaders, are we ready to challenge our personal working preferences to ensure the best employee experience? Here are a few questions to consider:Have employees been successful at home, and can they continue to work from their home offices?  Have managers set clear expectations and understand how employees are performing both in and out of the office?center_img Can everyone participate in return to in-office decisions? As leaders, we need to assess our current beliefs, understand the true state, and then take action.  Time is passing quickly, so here are a few actions you can take:  Come from a place of empathy: Start by acknowledging that COVID-19 has been and is a shared experience for us all. Acknowledge that each employee is unique and psychological safety comfort levels will vary.Engage employees in the solution: Invite employees into the return-to-work conversation. Create an exercise for departments to revisit team deliverables and goals,  and reprioritize as needed. Then, talk to each of your employees to understand any unique working or scheduling needs. Be clear that this process will involve compromises, and the goal is to find the best solution for the employee and to ensure team deliverables can still be met. Communicate the why: Make sure shared goals and values are not forgotten in this process. Remind employees of why their work matters. If having employees in an office/branch is needed, be clear about why, and make sure they know how you are keeping them safe. Communicate often and make sure there is a ‘source of truth’ where employees can get the information they need.  Create or revisit remote working resources: With a long-term mindset, look at your work from home policies and practices and re-evaluate how managers and employees will connect for 1:1s, dispersed team meetings, etc.  Don’t be afraid to do the right thing: In the absence of a playbook, put humanity first— listen and find solutions in partnership with employees. An A/B schedule can ensure you have a response if someone complains, but being inclusive will drive employee engagement. Don’t let your personal preferences and beliefs interfere with one of the biggest employee-impacting decisions to date. When you engage employees in the process and solution, they’ll feel an increased commitment to the credit union, their team and your members. Now more than ever, we must live out our mission of “people helping people.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Chary Krout For over 25 years, Chary has dedicated her career to coming alongside credit union employees and leaders, helping them solve problems, and creating better workplaces for everyone.  Chary believes in … Web: https://www.cultivateresults.com Detailslast_img read more

Arsenal could be without Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny against Sunderland

first_img Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring for Arsenal 1 Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny are doubts for Arsenal’s clash with Sunderland.The Gunners host the Black Cats on Tuesday night looking to keep alive their top four hopes.But they will have to potentially contend without Koscielny and Sanchez who are both struggling for fitness.“We have a little problem with Koscielny from Stoke. We’ll see how he has recovered today,” said Wenger on Monday.“Everybody else should be available. I left Gibbs behind on Saturday but he is available again. Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out.“Alexis Sanchez will have a test today. Yesterday it didn’t look too good, but with him you never know.“He’s so keen. Maybe it was just a kick. It could be a possibility that he recovers for tomorrow.“Koscielny has a little recurrence of his calf problem which kept him out against Southampton. Alexis has a kick on his thigh.”Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains sidelined and is in a race to be fit for the FA Cup final on May 27.The England international limped off against Southampton on Wednesday with a hamstring injury and missed Saturday’s win over Stoke.The 23-year-old has now been ruled out of the Gunners’ last two Premier League games of the season against Sunderland and Everton.“Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out. The earliest chance he has is to be available for the Cup final,” said Wenger. “I would say it’s 80:20 [percent that he does play against Chelsea].”last_img read more
