Understand your culture. Create a thriving growth culture.
For organisations to maximise employee experience and performance, their people need to be both Happy and Engaged.
Happiness speaks to our hearts. Engagement speaks to our brains. By understanding how their people are thinking and feeling the business will thrive. Engagement gives us direction and happiness creates energy. Imagine a car… engagement is the Sat Nav and happiness is the fuel. It’s one thing knowing where you want to go, it’s another to have the energy to take you there!
We visualise our Cultural Assessment with a 4-box model.
Organisations with high levels of engagement but low happiness tend to create a siloed, competing-culture. Organisations with high levels of happiness but low levels of engagement tend to have lots of positive intent but they lack direction.
With the right balance of engagement and happiness organisations create a thriving culture.
This means they experience growth in a number of ways;
1. The organisation’s performance against its objectives.
2. The growth of their people.
3. The growth in their collective culture.
