An employee's confusion

I read this on Hugh's manifesto request and had to pass it on...

Anna Farmery of The Engaging Brand blog sent me in this manifesto:

If... a brand starts inside, an employee's confusion

1. If you believe in the strategy, why can't you explain it?

2. If talent is important, why is promotion based on your social circle?

3. If we are entrepreneurial, why do we make decisions by consensus?

4. If values are important enough to put on a card, why are they not applicable to leaders?

5. If the future is important, why do we spend time in meetings looking at the past?

6. If you embrace talent why, do you only speak to me about my weaknesses?

7. If we aim for a USP why, are encouraged to produce sameness?

8. If we believe in diversity, why are you all 40+, white and male?

9. If we need to cut development and R&D to hit budget, how can you afford a two-day team bonding session in a 5-star hotel?

10. If it is us that interact with customers, why don't you see we should feel the brand values first?

    Employee engagement is a term that has become both a hot topic and a buzz term at times. There has also been some confusion about the definition for employee engagement. Some business professionals view it as job satisfaction while others view it as an employee’s emotional commitment to an organization.
    To help clear up the confusion, the Conference Board developed a definition several years ago. They defined employee engagement as ”a heightened emotional connection that an employee feels for his or her organization, that influences him or her to exert greater discretionary effort to his or her work.” This is a useful explanation. Employees are engaged when they have a positive emotional connection with their organization. This positive emotional connection will then influence them to give greater work efforts and be more committed to the organization. Given the many challenges in business these last several years, what is the state of employee engagement in 2011?

    The National Transportation Safety Board, the federal agency investigating the disaster that took eight lives, destroyed dozens of homes and reduced a neighborhood to ash, Thursday released 500 pages of transcribed interviews with PG&E employees. Among those interviewed were employees like Hickey, who responded to the disaster without instruction, and ultimately contributed to shutting down the geyser of gas-fueled flames.

    Although course work for the Honors Program does not start until the senior year, it is highly recommended that during the spring quarter of the junior year, students find a professor willing to serve as their research project advisor on the basis of a mutually acceptable abstract that indicates the goal and significance of their project. If extensive research is to be undertaken at this time, students should enroll in Chicano/Latino Studies 199.

    During the fall quarter of the senior year, students enroll in Chicano/Latino Studies H190A and write a proposal describing their research question, the relevant background literature, and the method of data collection and analysis. Field work for the project may begin during this quarter.

    In the winter quarter of the senior year, students begin or continue their research by enrolling in Chicano/Latino Studies H190B. In the spring quarter of the senior year, students enroll in Chicano/ Latino Studies H190C and complete a senior honors thesis.
