Employees are not worker bees. They are whole individuals with human needs and desires. Organizations should work towards humanizing the workplace. By striving to be the most family-friendly organization, companies will reap long-term rewards with would make the firm grow company stronger.

Often, the biggest challenge that businesses face today is learning to think about their employees in the same the way they think about their customers. How do you engage employees to increase productivity?

2. Growing importance of service

4. Hidden costs of intangibles

10. Downward spiral of performance

Human behavior is diverse and the relationship between attitudes (such as job satisfaction) and behavior (such as job performance) are complex.
Staff members who feel disempowered and unheard are generally unhappy. This situation leads to higher turnover rates, absenteeism and an overall lower quality of work.

As such, it is important to know what drives the satisfaction of employees through employee research or workforce survey. Here is where finding a firm that has standardized instruments to measure employee perceptions becomes crucial. These Firms should not only have standardized instruments available, but should also be able to provide organizations with benchmarking data as well as inferential statistics to identify the drivers key to employees’ behavior.

Mr Plana reiterates the IIP hopes to get inspiring people living the standard. It pushes for capitalization of Human Management. IIP can be used to enrich HR. IIP is not just for HR but also for those individuals who wants to lead. IIP works for all kinds and sizes of organization. Those that use the Standard improve their results, including revenue, profit, productivity and customer satisfaction.
