Climate survey results getting worse?

A number of our clients have seen their climate survey / opinion survey results deteriorate this year.

It’s hardly surprising in a tough economic climate that the messages of doom and gloom people read every day result in greater uncertainty and concern about job prospects.

In general, climate and opinion survey results reflect the overall level of performance of the organization – when things are going well most scores are influenced positively, and vice versa when things are not going so well.

But this is a critical time for working on employee motivation

  • people are feeling insecure and value any sign that the organization is continuing to invest in them
  • after job cuts we need a strategy to build back the motivation of the survivors.
  • this is when people can see what their organization really believes about people (rather than just what they can afford as a “nice to have” when times are good.)

So we need a plan to rebuild employee morale and satisfaction, this is when HR people have the opportunity to show what they are made of and take a leadership role.

At the same time, business is tough, and productivity is essential.

The great news is that it is not so hard to get huge increases in productivity because about 20% of all the work people do in large organizations just does not need doing.

One example – people tell us that they spend an average of 2 days per week in meetings and half of this is completely unnecessary. A large proportion of communication and internal control mechanisms do not add any value and waste time and effort.

Find out about our “Save a day a week” program. It saves time, reduces costs and at the same time improves job satisfaction (nobody enjoy pointless meetings, conference calls and emails)

Training and OD budgets are under pressure, time to focus on delivering real productivity improvements – another year of presentation skills training will not do it. What is your organization doing to improve motivation?
