The Ultimate Guide to Employee Engagement

This guide is about a powerful idea — one that's well known by only some of the elite managers of the world. The funny thing is it's not top-secret information at all. People have researched, written, and spoken about employee engagement for years. And the top managers have practiced and refined it over the last few decades to create tremendous value within their organizations. For a variety of reasons, though, a vast majority of CEO's, VP's, Directors, and HR professionals still only half-understand it: this guide was created to change this.   TABLE OF CONTENTS: INTRODUCTION Why this Employee Engagement Guide?

KEY STRATEGIES TO INCREASE EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT Improve your workplace employee recognition Use better employee survey practices CLOSING THOUGHTS The importance of adapting your employee engagement techniques

Old Power is Dying: Here's How to Leverage New Power within your Organization

  The rules of power are changing. In our hyper-connected world, power is increasingly wielded by the collective, and the leaders who thrive are those able to harness it effectively. In this edition of our Leadership Warriors series, Jeremy Heimans talks to us about his best selling book ‘New Power’ and why the ability to mobilize the masses is an essential skill for leaders in the 21st century. Jeremy Heimans is the cofounder and CEO of Purpose, an organization that supports the creation and proliferation of movements worldwide. From gun violence to climate change, Purpose is dedicated to fostering communities around global problems and leveraging that united energy to affect real change. During his career, Heimans has successfully employed the concept of new power to tackle social and political issues, but the same principles can be applied to drive change in a corporate setting too. Employees at organizations with new power models have a greater sense of ownership at work and as a result, are likely to be more motivated, engaged and productive. In addition, a decentralized org structure can enhance the flow of ideas and lead to a more agile and efficient work environment. So how do you go about transitioning from an old power to new power structure within your organization? Watch the video above, or read and share with your leadership team!

Entrepreneur Matt Roberge's advice on starting and managing a successful remote business

I recently connected with Matt Roberge, CEO and founder of SLC Bookkeeping, a completely distributed accounting company. They fill in the gaps for small businesses that need flexibility, but don't yet have the need for a full-time controller. They also offer day-to-day financial planning, personalized mentoring, and consulting services for small businesses. As a Goldman Sachs 10KSB Scholar and a frequent contributor to Huffpost, Matt Roberge is a frequent proponent of strong work-life balance, and his recent blog post “I Finally Understand Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Succeed” is a beautiful example of his thought leadership in the business development space. I asked him a variety of questions, from why he decided to manage a workforce in Utah from Montana, to his thoughts on supporting employee growth.
