As the world becomes increasingly connected, it offers organizations in the facility management sector an opportunity to engage with an employee at an enhanced level. Today’s teams seek job fulfillment and are keen to work for organizations which are known for their employee friendly policies. Culture eats strategy for breakfast, and it is never too late to take the right steps in building a beneficial environment for your employees.
As we discussed in this post, work culture offers a distinct competitive edge to a facility management company, especially in existing market conditions. Spending on freebies and sops is often the easy way out, and the yield might be temporary.
Transformational Leadership aids Employee Retention
True retention is when teams stand by the organization when the times are tough. The true test of your employee retention policies is when the salaries are delayed, the freebies are non existent and the employees stick around because they believe in what they have helped build.
Transformational Leadership is an effective form. Through effective management and effective communication, facility management organizations have the potential of offering a compelling vision to employees across levels, across departments. This involves a mix of developing service culture, brand building and affinity for the team. The intangible trumps the tangible, and the results are evident.
Building a Culture of Promise
The promise of a win beyond a personal level, and gains for the organization as a whole makes for a solid case, and offers a challenging role for every employee. Quality talent seeks organizations which scale fast, offer growth profiles and the experience of a transition. It is important to nurture a move fast, fail fast culture to hire and retain A grade talent.
In addition to “moving fast and breaking things”, it is also crucial to note Mark Zuckerberg’s smart turnaround – “move fast with stable infrastructure”. Talent seeks stability, and sustainable growth. By building a culture of well being, team work and trust – it helps teams to stay focused on the organization’s objectives.
