Has anyone else observed the phenomena of employee engagement/organisational culture surveys being conducted across organisations by Human Resource/Organisational Development/People areas and then the results being cascaded down through the hierarchy?
It’s a bit like drip feeding people information and is, well, disengaging.
Wouldn’t it be great if the results of these surveys were anonymised by your national statistical agency to provide confidence that individuals could not be identified and then the data made available to all staff and the public so they could ‘play’ with it and provide ideas to be considered and acted on.
Going down this path would, in itself, be great step towards building and engagement culture from the ground up.
As a former HR/Organisational development person myself I have to ask why so many practitioners in this area persist with an approach that is somewhat dated. Surely employee engagement starts with operating in a way that enables people to shape organisational culture themselves based on access to real and valid data?
Anyone know of any examples of HR/OD areas taking a ‘Gov 2.0 approach’ to employee engagement and organisational culture?
