Employee engagement is a constant challenge. According to Gallup, only a third of workers say they feel motivated to add value and succeed on the job. Why is that? One reason might surprise you.
Paycor surveyed more than 1,000 HR and finance leaders and found that while nearly everyone agrees teamwork is important, only a third say their company promotes effective teamwork. There’s a lot of evidence to suggest that ineffective teams reduce employee morale and engagement. So, what to do?
Hire the right people, not the “best” people.
Research shows that putting together a group of type-A high performers generates a degree of competitiveness to a point that can be counterproductive. Instead, focus on creating a team of mixed personalities where each person has a define role in which they can succeed.
