With so many ways to improve workplace culture, what should companies focus on first?

  • Connection: The Key to Employee Engagement
    Connection: The Key to Employee Engagement
    Join Mindi Cox, Senior Vice President of People and Great Work at O.C. Tanner Recorded: Jun 20 2018 67 mins
    We hear over and over again that employee engagement is low. A 2017 Gallup report shows 51% of the workforce is not engaged, and 16% are actively disengaged. What’s missing in our workplace cultures that has led to such low engagement?

    Connection. Connection between people - between employees and their leaders. Between teams. Between people and their companies. We have so much technology at hand to bring us together, but it may actually cause us to drift apart. Think of the email or text you send to a coworker sitting right across from you. The instant message you send instead of picking up the phone.

    This lack of connection leads to less collaboration, innovation, trust, and engagement. But companies can take active steps to build more interaction and relationships between their people, and use practices, like appreciation, to create a more integrated culture.

    Join Mindi Cox, Senior Vice President of People and Great Work at O.C. Tanner, as she shares insights and best practices on how to create a more connected workforce in today’s increasingly disconnected environment.

    During the webinar you’ll learn:

    - The importance of human connection in the workplace today
    - How to foster high-quality interactions among employees and teams
    - The impact of having a connected workforce on company culture and employee performance

    As Senior Vice President of People and Great Work at O.C. Tanner, Mindi Cox works to connect people with purpose. Her goal is to help cultivate workplace cultures where people feel connected to the greater purpose and impact of their work. Mindi believes it’s this connection, this soul spark, that inspires people to seek personal and professional progress, inspiring the most powerful business breakthroughs. Mindi has 17 years of experience in Sales, Marketing, and as a Human Resource Executive focused on practices that contribute to strengthening the workforce through culture.
  • Transforming Your Workplace Culture with Purpose and Opportunity
    Transforming Your Workplace Culture with Purpose and Opportunity
    Gary Peterson, Executive Vice President of Supply Chain, O.C. Tanner Recorded: May 24 2018 58 mins
    Imagine leading a team that is highly multicultural or multigenerational. Or a team that is largely offline, remote, or working in diverse locations—perhaps where the opportunity for raises and promotions seem slim due to company structure or the economy, or where employees don’t feel inspired by the company’s underlying purpose or reason for being?

    Is it possible to build a workplace culture where every employee feels inspired by and connected to the company’s purpose? Where each team member is actively working to improve the company because they feel a sense of belonging and feed off all the possibilities to make a difference that the company’s strategy represents?

    It is, if you can build trust, provide opportunities to grow and develop skills, and empower employees to do great work and be successful in their own unique ways. It starts by aligning employees’ work to company goals and giving purpose to their work. Then make sure employees have a voice, empower them to lead the way, and encourage them to be innovative.

    When companies take steps toward thriving workplace cultures, they see dramatic improvements in employee engagement, innovation, retention and business performance. Just ask Gary Peterson, Executive Vice President of Supply Chain and Production, at O.C. Tanner. He was able to transform a manufacturing workforce that struggled with engagement and collaboration into a culture where employees innovate, succeed, and celebrate together.

    Join Gary as he shares best practices and strategies on using purpose and opportunity to create a great place to work.

    During the webinar, you’ll:

    - Learn how to provide employees with purpose and opportunities to grow and develop even when promotions and pay raises aren’t available.
    - Gain best practices in empowering employees to innovate and do great work.
    - See a case study and results of these efforts on employee engagement, retention, and innovation.
  • How Do You Measure Workplace Culture?
    How Do You Measure Workplace Culture?

    On top of every organization’s to-do list is improving culture. Companies want to create workplace cultures that retain, engage, and attract employees, and they want to see the results of their efforts. But they also struggle with defining their culture and measuring it. It can be difficult to measure something that seems so intangible, but you can’t improve something that you can’t measure.

    Companies often default to only using the metrics they can easily track: usage and satisfaction of company benefits and perks, retention, employee engagement, etc. But are these really metrics of company culture? How do you measure the true influences on your culture?

    Join Gary Beckstrand, VP, and Alex Lovell, Manager of Research and Development, at the O.C. Tanner Institute as they share best practices in measuring the effectiveness of a company culture. Gary and Alex will walk through different methods for measuring your culture, which specific factors are most important to look at, and what types of questions you should be asking. They’ll also discuss the challenges of measuring culture and share stories of what successful companies have done to measure, and improve, their company cultures for maximum results.

    Join Gary and Alex to:

    - Learn the methods for measuring culture, both quantitative and qualitative
    - See the most important culture factors to look at
    - Discover the types of questions you should be asking about culture
    - Understand the challenges and complexity of measuring culture
