  • Goleman, D. (1995) Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ. New York: Bantam Books.This is where emotional intelligence comes in - Developing the capacity to understand andmanage your feelings and deal effectively with others, no matter how great the differences, is acritical competence and key to your professional success. In today’s workplace, where it’s not uncommon to find four or five generations, multiple languages, many ethnicities and races, anddifferences in gender, sexual orientation, religion, personalities and values, dealing with differences is a reality and a key requirement. How well you do that will depend in great part on your emotional intelligence.

    10. 10. 11 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Everybody wants to have an engaged workforce because it can forge a path to competitive advantage. Yet ask five different people to define engagement and you’ll likely get five different answers ….
    11. 11. 12 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Group Exercise 1) _____ % of your employees that are good responsible people? 2) _____ % of their brain power that is used at work? 3) _____ % of their human potential that is used at work? 4) _____ % of your time that is spent assisting top performers? 5) _____ Average number of hours of non-productive time per day for each employee, (not including scheduled breaks). 6) If an employee saw another staff person being called into the boss‟ office, what would they assume is going on? 7) If an employee saw another staff person being called into the HR office, what would they assume is going on?
    12. 12. 13 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg What is Employee Engagement? It is all about alignment. CEE Definition en●gage●ment (in gājd/ měnt) “an individual‟s heightened emotional and intellectual connection and focused energy, evident to others in the display of personal initiative, additional discretionary effort to his or her work as well as effort and persistence directed toward achieving the organizational goals.”
    13. 13. 14 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Source: The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Report on “Creating an engaged workforce” hhttp://www.cipd.co.uk/hr-resources/factsheets/employee-engagement.aspx 1. Employers want employees who will do their best work or „go the extra mile‟. Employees want jobs that are worthwhile and that inspire them. More and more organisations are looking for a win- win solution that meets their needs and those of their employees. What they increasingly say they are looking for is an engaged workforce. 2. So what is employee engagement? It can be seen as a combination of commitment to the organisation and its values and a willingness to help out colleagues (organisational citizenship). It goes beyond job satisfaction and is not simply motivation. Engagement is something the employee has to offer: it cannot be „required‟ as part of the employment contract.

    15. 15. 16 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Engaged employees behave:  Persistence at difficult tasks  Helping others  Taking Initiative  Going beyond expectations  And so forthSatisfied employees behave:  Low absenteeism  Low turnover  Low substance abuse Is Satisfaction the Same as Engagement? Behaviors Engaged employees are satisfied too… And demonstrate satisfaction behaviors as well as engagement behaviors Why Should We Care?
    16. 16. 17 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Employee Engagement Groups 30% 55% 15% Engaged Not Engaged Actively Disengaged These employees are loyal and psychologically committed to the organization. They are more productive and more likely to stay with their company for at least a year. These employees may be productive, but they are not psychologically connected to their company. They are more likely to miss workdays and more likely to leave. These employees are physically present but psychologically absent. They are unhappy with their work situation and insist on sharing this unhappiness with their colleagues.

    20. 20. 21 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg  Engagement happens when people feel safe to take action on their own initiative  People feel safe when they trust their environment  People trust their environment when they feel fairly treated by it  The key is to create a culture of trust in organizations Case Study: Building Engagement@ Fairness Trust Feel Safe Engaged
    21. 21. 22 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Lessons Learnt on Employee Engagement 1) Employee Engagement is critical to the success of your business. 2) Employee Engagement is a critical measure of person- organization alignment 3) Bringing out the best in each employee and appreciating employee efforts will help keep employees engaged. 4) Find out what your employees want most from you, and be creative in giving employees what they need. 5) Engagement must be based on strong diagnostics and executed with a focused, creative strategy designed to prove the impact on business results
    22. 22. 23 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Lessons Learnt on Employee Engagement 6) Engaged employees share a common set of attitudes and beliefs which, taken together, reflect a vital aspect of organizational health 7) Increasing your level of employee engagement will ensure the long-term success of your business. 8) Employees must know specifically what they can do on their individual jobs each and every day to truly make a measurable difference in bottom line results 9) Employee engagement has dropped significantly in the recent years due to the economic downturn, resulting layoffs, and other cost-cutting measures. 10) Strong leadership “engages employees” in tough economic situations and pulls the firm through faster

    25. 25. 26 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Shifting Demographics  By 2017, workers in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore., Italy and the U.K. aged 50 and over will make up more than 40% of the workforce (AARP Profit from Experience, 2007) and will be poised to retire in large numbers within the next ten years.  Gen X represents a much smaller pool of available workers and will not be able to fill the positions left vacant by retirements (Institute for the Future, 2003).  In light of this predicted labor and skills shortage, it is imperative for forward-thinking companies to focus on retaining older workers and increasing their ability to recruit and engage younger workers.

Boomers 1946 - 1964 “Live to work” - Believe in putting in face time at the office. Women enter the workforce in large numbers. Gen Xers 1965 - 1980 “Work to live” - Believe that work should not define their lives. Dual-earner couples become the norm. Gen Yers (Millennials) 1981 - 1994 “Work my way” - Devoted to their own careers, not to their companies. Desire meaningful work. Gen Zers (Linksters) 1995 to present “Living and Working their way” - Their struggles in the work environment are tied to their youth and inexperience. Desire for change, stimulation, learning and promotion that will conflict with traditional organisational hierarchies.

Like any other generation, it brings its own mindset into the workforce.  Linksters primarily work part-time while attending school.  They are called Linksters because no other generation has ever been so linked to each other and to the world through technology. Their struggles in the work environment are tied to their youth and inexperience.  They are complete digital natives and cannot function without communicating through social media.  Desire for change, stimulation, learning and promotion that will conflict with traditional organisational hierarchies.

They don‟t expect jobs for life and will move onto the next job, similar to Generation Y.  Managers of Generation Z employees will have to be prepared to give regular feedback that tells them they are making a difference to the organisation  Development and work/life balance are more important than financial reward, with both Gen Y & Z being committed to their own personal learning and development.

    50. 50. 51 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Multi-Generational Conflict: Striving for Collaboration  Nearly 60 percent of HR managers at large companies say they have observed office conflicts that flow from generational differences, according to the Society for Human Resource Management. Tensions typically stem from perceptions of loyalty and respect.  “Even though the generations are different, it does not necessarily mean they hold divisive values and attitudes that will affect their ability to work well together” (Giancola, 2006). Organizations are reaping the benefits of the diversity provided by workers of different generations collaborating effectively and learning from one another.
    51. 51. 52 © 2013 Centre for Executive Education Pte Ltd www.ipma.com.sg Findings according to a study, commissioned by the Tripartite Alliance for Fair Employment Practices (TAFEP):  Employees aged 30 and above, particularly the older ones, have the most difficulty working with colleagues belonging to Gen Y – those aged 29 and below.  Conversely, Gen Y employees have fewer difficulties working with older colleagues  Organisations should be sensitive towards (inter- generational issues) as the workforce becomes increasingly diverse Source: myPaper, 8 April 2010 Intergenerational Conflict

Use the Platinum Rule rather than the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as they would have you do unto them” or translated, treat them like they want to be treated, keeping their values in mind.
