Start by considering these six key communications shifts happening across organizations.

In the past, when a worker left a company, the employer-employee relationship all but ended. But what if organizations treated their former employees as long-term assets? Leading companies are doing just that—placing value on alumni to boost the company’s brand and bottom line.

Successful companies can enhance talent by using personas to maximum advantage. When they do this, they create irresistible experiences for employees. So how can organizations create an effective business case and adopt the strategies that ultimately help their employees grow?
In our Simply Irresistible model for the employee experience (aka employee engagement), we describe five core drivers of employee success: meaningful work, supportive management, fantastic environment, growth opportunity, and trust in leadership. In this article we’ll talk about the first, “meaningful work.”

Today’s workforce management tools can do more than simply track time and attendance: they’re helping to guide management to make more informed workforce decisions and connect with employees in more meaningful ways.
People need meaning and purpose in their lives to do worthwhile things. Why we do what we do, and what good it creates, are essential parts of being human. This also holds true for our lives at work. The corporate mission is not just for show—mission statements matter. When well-articulated and intentionally activated, they enable us to sit inside a nest of meaning that helps motivate us to work toward something worthwhile. If the mission is just about making money, it is not deeply meaningful.

The Chief Learning Officer, CLO, is one of the newer members of the C-suite, first appearing on org charts in the late ’90s. At the time, the emphasis was on providing traditional forms of learning (initially in the classroom, later adding online or e-learning) to ensure employees had the knowledge, skills, and capabilities to perform their jobs. This rather narrow view of the CLO’s role has steadily broadened over time.

I hope you’ve had a chance to dig into this year’s Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends 2016 report. The theme is The new organization: Different by design, reflecting this year’s No. 1 trend, cited by 92 Percent of respondents: the need to redesign our organizations and the way we get work done. The shift we clearly see is a move toward a new organizational model, one we call a “network of teams.” Your company might look like a hierarchy on the org chart, but in reality people operate in teams (sales teams, product teams, service teams, etc.), and the teams work with each other, often communicating transparently, sharing information, plans, and results.
