Employee Enhancement Program

Creating a Culture of Alignment for Employees

Does it seem like your employees are just doing enough to get by rather than excelling? Are you confident that you have hired the right people, but you are frustrated because they have not yet aligned for great productivity? Stop hoping for outside forces and luck to change your employees and fix your workplace issues.

Believe in those employees and hang onto them by optimizing them and creating aligned teams where they can shine to their fullest potential.  It is far easier to help your employees get aligned than it is to continually deal with high turnover, performance issues and unexplained attendance problems.  Be realistic that employee and team problems don’t go away, right themselves with time or are one-time occurrences.

All of this can flush good culture down the toilet and leave you with a workplace that is weighed down with constant tension, high stress and unending conflict. Don’t wait for profits, productivity and sales to plummet before you decide to “turn the ship around”. Address internal dysfunction before it becomes a gigantic task with expensive ramifications.

Problems that confirm alignment and change are needed.

  1. Engagement lessens and exponentially so does productivity.
    It is obvious when employees are not motivated to perform their jobs much less show up consistently and punctually. Low levels of excitement and commitment result in poor attitudes, mistakes and lack of focus.
  2. Communication challenges lead to poor results and errors.
    Never ending errors, recurring mistakes and continually incomplete work are not always due to skills and abilities. Often a lack of communication, unclear requests and vague instruction are the culprits. Skill building does not compensate for poor communication.
  3. A few bad employees affect numerous people and departments.
    It starts with a subtle feeling of tension in the air but over a short time this escalates into obvious stress with disrespect, avoidance and conflict. Bad morale can be measured by sick days, tardiness and medical/stress leaves.

Wouldn’t you prefer a workplace filled with enthusiastic employees and an energetic culture that combine for great productivity? You want to take pride not only in the company but in the employees that make it successful.  Here is how such a workplace with great employees and workplace culture would look:

  • Responsibility and accountability at 100% – you spend less time worrying about deadlines and tasks when employees agree and accept their roles and tasks. Productivity can be high and staff can excel.
  • Motivation and engagement lead to trust – you spend less time dealing with mistakes and missed deadlines when employees are enthused and give 100%. It is easy to rely on staff when attendance, productivity and engagement are obvious.
  • Communication and collaboration result in high morale and great momentum – you spend less time managing conflict and settling arguments when employees talk through problems and collectively get the work done. Tension and stress dissipate when the “one or two bad apples” have been fixed.

The good news is that this level of engagement, productivity and performance can be the norm in any company. But how do you make it happen?

Introducing the Employee Enhancement Program

The Employee Enhancement Program is a systematized program to create the perfect solution. Our comprehensive program is designed to provide awareness, information and insight that will produce alignment and cultural results at a much higher level. We have developed a system that accurately identifies problems and issues so the change created is specific and long-lasting to improve momentum by aligning your employees.

Employee Enhancement Program . . .

Our specialty is understanding employees from a psychological perspective.  We believe that employee improvement should be based on information gleaned from a diagnosis of skills, abilities, strengths and challenges as well as workplace fit, engagement and motivation.

We focus on the ability of employees to enhance their performance and conduct them self in a professional, ethical and courteous manner to facilitate communication and collaboration for a great workplace culture.  Three components that span all situations, circumstance and contexts is the ability to effectively and efficiently manage time, tasks and teams.  We refer to this as T3 Excellence and focus our program on optimizing each category.

Our insight into the psychology behind people and workplace expectations of excellence allow us to create and build better corporate cultures with your present group of employees.  We believe that the T3 Excellence is a continuum where the functionality of the employee is dictated by their level, role and seniority in the company.

Our optimization is not generic but rather is tailored to differentiate skills and abilities of distinct units, levels and departments.  The degree of T3 Excellence should by synonymous with the distinct purposes and accountabilities in the workplace.

A workplace culture that focuses on optimizing each employee will create opportunities and learning so that aligned teams can optimize time, tasks and people to degrees that match their expectations and build on their specialties.

How is the Employee Enhancement Program Different?

Our program is different because it is not a band-aid, a one-off training or a report filled with recommendations. It’s about creating real, long lasting cultural change in your employees and organization.

  • Our degree of diagnosis and intensity with problem identification are in-depth and meticulous – we don’t provide solutions based on the opinion of one person or one level of management.
  • Our education is problem-focused and training is situational and long term – we don’t train people for 2 hours and let them revert back to their bad habits.
  • Our analysis and measurement of change is detailed and monetized – our change is guaranteed to be long-term, address specific cultural problems and will pay back your investment many times over.

The return on investment for this program is obvious and measurable because you have the right program providing the right fix. You will get peace of mind with an accurate diagnosis that provides answers and the assurance of positive change. Your business will have a renewed feeling of confidence because improvement is evident and lasting.

The Structure of the Employee Enhancement Program

The Employee Enhancement Program includes three distinct phases that are strategically implemented based on time, learning, change and maintenance.

Phase One: Diagnose – Explore & Identify

In the first week of the program we conduct interviews, hold focus groups and shadow a portion of key personnel at multiple levels to get a 3600 understanding. We need to discover and analyze what works well and what (or who) needs work.

Phase Two: Develop – Train & Teach

In the next three weeks of the program we develop goals and design education, training and coaching to address the issues identified. We tailor our employee change program to address multiple people and topics to fit availability as well as specialties.

Phase Three: Difference – Measure & Monitor

Over the next eleven months of the program we return one day every month to attend meetings, coach individuals to further learning and advise staff on challenging situations, circumstances and processes.  Follow through is done with multiple individuals, levels and departments to ensure that employees are optimized, change is present, improvement is witnessed and new strategies are maintained.
