The Power of Incentives in the Workplace

We’ve all had negative working experiences.  Many offices are filled with unhealthy competition, our days peppered with manipulation and deceit in efforts to get ahead.  So what makes for a healthy working environment?  How do team leaders create positivity and productivity in equal amounts?  There is a secret that some of the world’s top leaders know, one word that gets them further than anything else in their careers. Gratitude.  Time and time again, studies have shown that it is not happy people who are thankful, but rather thankful people who become happy.

Your First Vibecatch Poll

By now, any internet social HR professional should be witnessing first-hand the transition companies are making from old-school annual employee surveys, to frequent pulse polling or in other words, consistent employee engagement.  In fact, over the past few years, a clear handful of startups have developed applications and tools to help with this, including us, duh.

While many of us in the industry see this transition as a “why didn’t this happen sooner” type of thing, there are still others that find difficulties adopting a more engaging system of building great company culture.  One of the topics that we discuss when helping new clients, has to do with what questions to ask.  

When a company is introduced to pulse polling for the first time, they are unsure how to go about asking the right questions.  Therefore, Vibecatch has made that part easy too.  We’re going to walk you through setting up your first poll with Vibecatch, while you are reading this, just so you can see how easy it is.

Ready?

How Smiling Can Make Work Better

Sam walks into a room with a straight face.  No hint of a smile.  A bit of a sigh as he sits down in front of his peers.  Virtually no eye contact.

Greg walks into a room, makes eye contact with everyone, smiles, says hello, asks how everyone is doing, maybe even chuckles here and there.

Based on those two scenarios, who would you rather meet?

Poor Communication Will Destroy Your Company

Poor communication is definitely one of the top reasons a company can be torn apart. If the quality and the quantity of communication is poor between colleagues, this can have a direct effect on efficiency, productivity, and the bottom line. If there is a lack of communication between leadership and their teams, things can get even worse. Why is communication so important?

Coping with Tragedy in the Workplace

A wise person once said to me, that you can only control what you can control. This statement resonates with me, and it should resonate with everyone because it’s pretty much a fact. The sad truth is that things will happen in life that are out of your control. The only thing you can control is how you react and manage it.   One of the most difficult things HR professionals (and managers in general) face in the office, is figuring out how to approach tragedies the right way. As we all know, even during the toughest tragedies, work is work, and somehow we need to keep things going.

Celebrate cultural diversity!

Last week we started talking about diversity, and the importance of diversity in the hiring process.  We are all individuals with different personalities, and those personality traits start to show when we’re put in teams and forced to work together.  Certain people emerge as leaders, other focus on analyzing, and so on and so on.  

To expand on this topic of diversity, we’re now going to talk about cultural diversity in the workplace.

Necessities of Diversity in Your Team

Diversity, is simply defined as, "a range of different things."  In the workplace, however, diversity describes our culture, our skills, and our roles.  Imagine if there are three different types of people in this world.  We’ll call these people, X’s, Y’s, and Z’s.

What is Employee Motivation?

Have you ever tried to figure out employee motivation? Think about the last team meeting you had, and how you motivated your team. Think back and remember what you said in that meeting. Now, think about the results from that meeting. Was your pep talk a success?

You may find that employee motivation isn't the same for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are the CEO of a five person startup, or a global company of 1,000, employees may not always be motivated by the exact same thing. Pep talks, are one of them. So how do you figure this out and keep every single person on your roster motivated?
