The New Rules of Engagement: Life-Work Balance and Employee Commitment

Buy
This book offers practical, down-to-earth solutions for developing a new psychological contract between employer and employee, leading to improved productivity, retention of key employees, attracting a better caliber of new employees, and more.

How many of your employees care enough about their work, or your organization, to do anything more than the bare minimum? How many would stay if they were offered another job?

Why should you care? Well, highly engaged employees are six times less likely to be planning to leave their employer than the disengaged. Six times! How much could you save on your recruitment costs by improving engagement? How about the ‘discretionary effort’ that highly engaged employees put in?

Mike Johnson argues that there are ways to develop a new psychological contract between employer and employee. You can start by recognizing that talk of ‘work-life balance.’ Their life always comes before your work. If you can find a way of accommodating that, then you’re well on the way to getting their attention, engagement and commitment.

This advice in this book will:

  • help you convince senior management that employee engagement matters
  • help you to improve your employees’ productivity and willingness to try out new ideas and work practices
  • help you to retain key employees
  • make it easier for you to attract a better caliber of new employees

This book offers practical, down-to-earth solutions that human resource and general managers can use to re-engergise their employees (and themselves!).
