The Importance of Employee Mental Health

Employers should start thinking about creating a healthier workplace if they want to sustain good productivity among their employees and to reduce staff turnover.

Employee Engagement Optimizing Performance & Strengthening Belongingness

  Engagement is not Celebration. As the Engagement Ring is Round Which means endless or infinite and the Ring has Diamond which is Forever, similarly, Employee engagement is a continuous effort for ever.  We HR need to understand our role. With AI coming in, all the process may go away but ‘H’ of Human Resource will continue and our role is to bring employee every day to a workplace where he / she dont want to go. With the change in working of HR (Time office, personal and HR), the approach toward employee keeps changi ng. initially we used to work on employee satisfaction were there is no connect with Performance. Efforts were made to keep employee happy by providing facilities and the focus is on the HAND only. Than comes the commitment of an Employee to the organization...

Root Cause at workplace- ANT

  Once long back there was a Lion who was an entrepreneur. He stated his business and to do the work kept few Ants. Ants either of fear or of engagement were working dedicatedly and giving result as expected. Ants used to come and go in time completing the task effectively and efficiently. One day the Lion thought that if without supervision if Ants are giving such a good result why don’t I put a Supervisor on them to get more output. Honeybee as a Production Manager was appointed to supervise the work of Ants. To show her contribution in line with the objective of Lion, Honey Bee suggested to monitor IN and OUT timing of Ants to enhance production. Lion agreed and recruited one Rabbit as HR Man to monitor IN and OUT timings of all the Ants. Looking to the work, Lion asked to have ana...

Ergonomic Essentials for Remote Working

Working from home is great. The reduced time in the office and cutting out arduous commutes are reason enough to make the switch. Your personal items and the comforts of home are easily accessible. Managing employees, contacting potential clients, grabbing a quick grilled cheese sandwich, and taking immediate control of projects are all possible in your own space. This ability to increase productivity still comes with hours of effort and physical strain, however. And sometimes a mind pressed by stress, too. Much of this can be heavily influenced by your workspace. But through being mindful ergonomics, you not only create a stronger rhythm for your workflow, you also reduce stress and strain on your body. Ergonomics is an often overlooked attribute of a personal workspace. But it has become...

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Flex Time

Offering more flexibile hours can boost employee satisfaction — but there are drawbacks. The 9-to-5 has been a staple for businesses for so long that you don’t even have to think about what those numbers mean; you already know. It’s a colloquialism, it’s a movie, it’s a Dolly Parton song. It’s so ubiquitous that many people don’t even question it. But what if working hours didn’t have to be set by a universal standard? What if they could be set-up to maximize the balance between life and work? This is the basic premise behind Flex Time, or the idea that workers can set their schedules around their lives. There are many different ways that a Flex Time system can work, though the most common is as follows: employees have a minimum number of hours they must work, but are allowed to start and ...

4 Problems with Employee Engagement Surveys

Employee engagement surveys are designed to provide employees with the opportunity to tell their management team how they’re feeling at work. That means all the positive AND negative thoughts and feelings are supposed covered in a survey lasting 100+ questions. Theoretically, this exercise leads to a perfect picture of what’s going on in the office. Are these surveys truly accurate? Unfortunately, the short answer is no. Employee engagement surveys tend not to give an accurate reflection of what’s going on in the workplace. In fact, because of the way they’re usually operated — with an air of finality and aloofness — they can actually be the chief motivation behind employee disengagement, creating the very problem these surveys mean to solve. By addressing problems inherent in engagement s...

Employee Cycle

How do you define a Life Cycle?  Well before we answer this question, let us understand that almost all components that exist in this universe have a life cycle. A Life Cycle is a series of stages through which something (as an individual, culture or manufactured product) passes during a lifetime. In some cases the process is slow, and the changes are gradual. We all know, human beings have various steps during their lives, such as zygote, embryo, child, and adult. The change from child to adult is slow and continuous. What are the life cycles that you know about? While we all know that there is a lifecycle for a product, even an employee in an organization passes through a life cycle.  Here is what I have learned so far. We all know that in business or product there is a cycle, i.e., Intr...

Appriciation- A Tool of Motivation

 “You don’t build a Business, You build people and then people build the business”                                                                                                    – Zig Ziglar Such a nice thought of the Zig Ziglar, is it possible that people build business? Yes, It is possible. Now days it is very common thought and we all are aware of it. Today I would like to discuss with you about the Motivation of Employee. How can we motivate employees?? By rewarding from money?? No. Money is not only a tool for motivation. The best moment of any person’s life is when he/she get appreciated. Being an Entrepreneur, Maximum result and productivity is expected from their people each time and every time. But somehow, they forget that they expecting this from their Men not from Mac...

Poor Site HR

Once there was a couple never had a fight and were neighbors envy. Neighbors always thought why no fight among them… and approached the couple. Couple were clear in view and replied – from the beginning we have  made our boundaries clear. Husband take major solution and wife take Minor. Now the question is what is major and what is minor – Minor are the decision like how will be money spent, who will come who will go where will we go  etc and major is who will be PM of India, How India play in cricket, which country President of India should visit etc. Hence there is no conflict. Hence the Corporate HR works at Macro Level and site HR works at Micro Level. The same is with the corporate world where we have Corporate HR and Unit HR. As we have no clarity on the role one feels I am ear...

When and why not to retain top Performers

It is not always wise to offer salary increments or promotions to get employees to stay on; sometimes this can be counterproductive. The most valuable assets of any company are its people, which is why the organisations try to retain the best talent with better compensation and work. It’s a fair thing to do, but how long this strategy will successfully work is something the employers need to ponder over. In order to create a highly engaged workforce that is committed to performance, retaining employees ‘at any cost’ seems a bad idea. Of course, retaining employees has its own benefits —less time and energy spent in scouting for them, no time wasted in acclimatising new joinees, and shorter honeymoon period. This is why, industry experts feel that while there is no harm in...

How talent analytics is becoming key to HR growth

HR is gradually moving away from making gut decisions to more evidence-based decision making. But how effectively is HR leveraging talent analytics for taking informed people-related decisions?

Organizations are increasingly recognizing the value of big data and data analysis in predicting and dealing with constant change.

But how effectively is HR leveraging talent analytics for taking informed people-related decisions? Willis Towers Watson (WTW), a global advisory, broking and solutions company has released ...
