A large financial services business had gone through several significant modifications and the company had determined that they most of the staff were reliant on the company to handle their livelihood. “They had been at a loyalty attitude,” commented that the Vice President of Human Resources “in which their safety was reliant on longevity. We wished to shift them into your dedication mindset in which their safety rested in their achievements.” Support was put up internally throughout the net and mentoring/coaching. The results were startling. People understood how to quantify their achievements and became centered on getting celebrities, knowing that was they’d be honored as well as their safety lied.
This company is, regrettably, the exclusion. The frequent answer in many organizations would be, “Why would we like to educate individuals to manage their own careers. They may leave” After speaking to a lot of associations about internal career direction, I understood just how brave that business was for doing exactly what they did.
We’re in hard times. As organizational learning and development are cut since they’re believed ‘non-essential spending’, I can’t help but consider the illogic of Outplacement. After all, you’re spending substantial amounts of money once people leave. You aren’t engendering ‘good feelings’ of this company, the company isn’t gaining through increased functionality and involvement and it truly isn’t gaining individuals to assist them when they’re already outside the door. It’s hard to concentrate on very top of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (or self-actualization) and process new information whenever you’re in the base of the hierarchy (fundamental) that can be only finding work. At this time also, there aren’t any chances to make, measure and list the achievements which compose the foundation of behavioral interviewing.
