Employee Engagement - Why is it stagnant?

As per a report in Economic Times a global study conducted by Hay groups revealed that employee engagement levels are stagnating. Employees are not willing to go to the extra mile for their organisations.

Below are few pointers, which I personally think are contributing to low levels of commitment.

  • Employees are not emotionally bonded with organisations
  • Organisations are not aligning personal goals of employees with organisational goals.
  • No career paths defined for employees.No long term plans for employees from organisation side, which gives an impression to employees that they are in the organisation only for short term period.
  • Employees see how organisations treat their peers, and create the impression about the trustworthiness of organisation.
  • Organisations taking advantage of employees, whenever they have to. But not compensating enough for the skills of employees. 
  • HR heads of the organisations, want  HR managers and executives to take care of other employees. But they do not take care of the employees in HR department, which leads to low morale in the HR department itself. 
  • Organisations are still not process oriented but their functioning is people depandant.

The above mentioned views are my personal views. And I am keen to discuss it with other HR professionals.

the Super Temps - freelancers

How come, whenever I start thinking of doing something, suddenly i see the articles around referring to the same.

Yes! I am talking of blogging and freelancing. It has been on my mind since long now. I even tried doing it once, but failed, due to bad planning. But still, somewhere deep in my heart I believe that i can be a success in it. Mainly, because i am interested in it. And I really want to do it. And as they say, when there is interest and passion, then its not work. Its fun all the way.

 In today's economic times, there is an article on freelancing. There are many successful people who are moving to freelancing and bloggers. Below is the world of freelancers depicted as in the article by Economic Times.

Would seriously work towards making easeworks  as an interesting professional blog for you all. 

"JEEV" - Jeev in hindi means a living being, and jeevs write his blog under this name, because he writes it as a living being, for other living beings, specifically for people in corporate world. Through this blog he wants to provide resources for everyone to make their work life easier.

Jeevs feels as living in a cocoon and looking forward to fly high as a butterfly, in the sky of knowledge.
