Avoid the People Pitfalls of High Growth
Too many companies suffer serious employee burnout, disengagement or turnover as they move up the growth curve. If you want to ensure your people strategy supports high growth, don’t let your organization be among them.
Five Ways to Drive Engagement During High Growth
Here are five ways you can prepare for keeping your people engaged even while the company is expanding by leaps and bounds. Essentially, it’s all about looking to the future and making sure your people strategy supports high growth in terms of systems, processes and practices.
Especially during times of high growth, make sure your leaders are “out on the floor” regularly. They need to talk with employees and listen to what they’re thinking. In other words, increase the frequency of contact and decrease the distance between leaders and employees.
Welcome and actively consider input from employees at all stages.
Now, however, you need to build rewards and recognition into your overall talent management strategy. Think through how you can effectively reward and recognize superior effort and success – a key to creating a high performance environment.
The Bottom Line
The good news is that you are growing. The better news is that you are prepared with a people strategy that supports high growth.
