Employee Activation: An Essential Big Idea For 2024
This week I introduce a big idea: Employee Activation. This idea, which comes from important work we’re doing with Medallia, shows you how to move “beyond engagement” to a whole new world of employee listening and action-taking based on feedback.
In the new world of labor shortages, high turnover, unions, and general employee stress, Employee Activation might be the big answer.
Here’s a definition:
“Employee Activation means designing the company so that managers, line executives, and employees can adjust, change, and redesign work around worker’s needs, suggestions, and demands.”
