    Ep. 109: Giving Employees the Tools and Resources They Need to Succeed

    Ep. 109: Giving Employees the Tools and Resources They Need to Succeed

    Having the basic tools and resources to do one’s work effectively is a fundamental part of the employee experience. When employees accept jobs, they have a reasonable expectation that they will be given the appropriate tools and resources to accomplish the tasks to which they are assigned. When they do not have the appropriate tools and resources, employees become distracted and dissatisfied. It can be very difficult for employees to engage over the long term without the appropriate tools to do their jobs well.

    In this podcast episode, we’re joined by DecisionWise consultants, Spencer Taylor and Kenna Bryan, who discuss this topic of tools and resources, including how it can affect the job satisfaction and engagement level of employees, and in turn, enable them to provide a better experience to customers.

    Ep. 107: Creating A Sense of Connection At Work

    In this Engaging People Podcast episode, DecisionWise VP of Consulting, Christian Nielson discusses the topic of creating a connection at work.

    Connection is a sense of belonging and feeling like we’re part of something bigger than ourselves; a team, an organization, a mission. We have such a strong need for connection as human beings that some will even forgo physiological needs to reach it. In fact, connection consistently shows up as the #1 driver of engagement in our surveys. When we feel like we belong, we tend to bring our best ideas to our work.

    Learn more about how to create a sense of connection on a social level, but also connecting employees to the vision and mission of your organization.

    Ep. 106: Impact – Seeing Positive And Worthwhile Outcomes And Results For Your Work

    Ep. 106: Impact – Seeing Positive And Worthwhile Outcomes And Results For Your Work

    Impact is about results. It’s incremental progress toward a goal, and small wins that lead to big outcomes. We all need to see that the work we do is contributing to our own goals, the success of our team, those whom we serve, and the organization we are a part of. It’s the difference between simply showing up for work and knowing that we’re an integral part of the day’s operations.

    In this Engaging People Podcast episode, Dan Deka, Senior Consultant and Executive Coach at DecisionWise, explores the importance of impact in the workplace, it’s connection to meaning, effort and goals, and how managers can use it to drive engagement.

    In this episode, we’re joined by DecisionWise Senior Consultant, Spencer Taylor for an insightful conversation on how managers can maximize growth opportunities for their employees.

    “As organizations face hard economic times and cut back on developing their employees, they don’t always realize how much value is added to the company culture and the experience of employees when they are given an ongoing opportunity to grow,” says Spencer.

    Growth is one of the five keys of the DecisionWise ENGAGEMENT MAGIC framework taught in our new Online Training course.

    Listen to this podcast episode for more research, stories and practical tips on growth.

    Ep. 104: Autonomy - The Power To Shape Your Work Environment

    In this Engaging People Podcast episode, DecisionWise Consultant, Thomas Olsen, discusses the topic of autonomy, one of the 5 keys of ENGAGEMENT MAGIC®.

    We define autonomy as “The power to shape your work and environment in ways that allow you to perform at your best.”

    Autonomy doesn’t mean “no rules and free reign.” We all work under guidelines. But when we understand our parameters, and have the freedom to do our best work, we are more creative, innovative, passionate and, ultimately, more effective.

    Listen to this insightful conversation to learn more about how to foster autonomy in your organization.
