What kind of story do employees tell about your company?
How do you think your employees’ narrate their work stories with family and friends? Do your employees’ experiences make pleasant dinner conversation or do the kids leave the table for the full uncensored version?
CSISTARS sole goal is to help companies create workplaces where employees want to work. We want every employee story to be a positive one. Our many programs make it easier for leaders and employees to “thank” each other, feel valued and listen so you get things right and can calibrate as time goes on.
We’ve been busy researching and writing about the many ways leaders can tweak what they’re doing to improve engagement throughout the employee lifecycle.
Here are a few articles and stats to support your efforts…

Successful recognition programs start when your new hire walks through the door on the first day of work. It continues throughout the employee life cycle on an endless loop with many iterations as changes happen within the company. It requires us, as HR professionals, to design and roll out programs so employees can be successful throughout every stage in the loop. It also means using quick online polls to ensure recognition remains a priority, stays linked to your core values, and results in the employee engagement we all want to see in the workplace.
Let’s do our part to make sure dinner-time conversations leave our kids feeling motivated to join the workforce!
