People want to be heard. Wherever you are, whether you live in a country with an oppressive regime or a democratic nation that champions freedom of speech, it is human nature to want to be recognized, heard and have your views considered.
In the modern workplace, employee voice is increasingly important. Studies have shown that giving employees a chance to be heard increases engagement, creativity, retention and effectiveness. The most forward-thinking and successful companies in the world recognize this. Allowing employees to challenge the status quo – with the sincere intention of improving it – empowers them in the long run.
“Making their voices heard prevents them from obsessing about a situation and letting it deteriorate into resentment – two great recipes for disaster.”
By allowing collective decision-making, employees feel better about doing something they don’t like to do or agree with. Making their voices heard prevents them from obsessing about a situation and letting it deteriorate into resentment – two great recipes for disaster. For employers and employees, there is nothing worse than a toxic work environment.
Every year, we hold an event we call “Definite Day”, where everyone pitches in to come up with innovative suggestions for positive change and modifications to standard procedures.
We do this to gain and retain trust within our organization. We do this to reduce the chances of negative effects on our productivity, and at the same time, increase the chances of sustainable business success.
Do you currently work in a toxic environment? Are you tired of the old management paradigms of command and hierarchy? If you fancy a positive change in your working life, join us.
