Over the past 15 years or so, we’ve conducted thousands of employee surveys. We’ve worked with countless organisations, some of whom are considered to be best employers, some of whom are not.
Effectory International recently spent time in studying the similarities of the organisations that scored highly in our employee surveys, especially in employee engagement. Our aim was to investigate if the organisations that scored highest in our surveys all had something in common, or not.
What we found was that the organisations that scored highly in our employee surveys, all shared similarities. After careful review, we have managed to condense these similarities into 7 secrets of the best employers.
The 7 Secrets of Best Employers
- A compelling organisational direction
- Inspiring leadership
- Get rid of idiotic regulations
- Less management
- Value specialists
- Implement social innovation
- Transparency and information sharing
Effectory International believe that in the coming years, these secrets will mark the difference between those organisations that succeed (with high employee engagement), and those that don’t. These 7 secrets are things that make the difference between organisations that are creative and innovative, where employees work with great enthusiasm, and organisations that aren’t.
