Flipping Corporate Culture on Its Head
Corporate culture is a topic of conversation everywhere nowadays. Don’t get me wrong – I think corporate culture is critical to long-term success for any company. Without culture you just have a bunch of mercenaries waiting for the next raise or job offer that brings them more money and/or prestige (mostly the money though.)Culture is what keeps us connected. Culture is deep seated.By definition culture is the set of shared attitudes, values, goa...

Does this engagement stuff make me fat? Too many high-calorie rewards maybe?

Your employee engagement needs to change focus. It really isn't about you.
 
Employee Engagement - Your Corporate Needs or Employee Needs? | Paul Hebert | LinkedIn

Do you cite statistics that talk about profitability and customer service? Do you make a big deal out of how getting everyone engaged is good for the brand and the PR that generates?Probably so.An you just just told everyone in your company how important employee engagement is TO YOU!Is that really the best way to get peo...

HR needs a way to document and remember the behaviors that create your culture - it's your fossil record so to speak.
 
Your Company's Fossil Record - What Does it Really Say? | Paul Hebert | LinkedIn
When paleontologists study fossils, they are looking at history. They are looking at a record of “what” lived years, centuries, eons ago. They have the physical manifestation of some animal, plant, insect whatever. They know that something was there. What they don’t know is what that something did.Based on the fossil record they make assumptions. Flat teeth – probably a plant eater. Sharp teeth, probably a plant-eater, eater.But they don’t know f...

Just what HR was screaming for - MORE data. I think not.
 
Are Pulse Surveys Simply a Bad Idea or The WORST Idea for Employee Engagement? | Symbolist
Low employee engagement isn’t due to a lack of data as much as it is a lack of focus on existing data and a poor understanding of its implications.

What is on your "won't do list"? Personally and corporately - that is probably a much more important list to create. 

What is it your company won't do? Does that match what they say they will do?

    Vice President, 2013 - present
    I design solutions that create long-term, emotional connections between a company and a specific audience. Technology has made it easy to "automate" many tasks in today's business world - but creating engagement and loyalty are not transactional and need to be driven from an emotional point of view. I work with companies to define and create that emotional connection and help manifest it in their recognition strategy, their incentive programs and their communications strategies. In addition, I speak at various HR and channel events, deliver white papers on the various ways to influence behavior and help anyone who asks!
