Learning environments own the competitive edge

Posted by Stephen Parry on Aug 16, 2016 4:20:56 AM

I think it's safe to say that most employees like to know what they’re supposed to do at work. Without having a fairly specific idea of what’s expected it’s hard to identify, and easily get distracted from, mission-critical tasks.

Testing work climate first step in organisation transformation

Posted by Stephen Parry on Jun 9, 2016 2:35:24 AM

Organisation transformation almost always starts with a climate check.

It makes sense. After all, an organization, is not the sum of its structure, but rather its people.

Ask yourself, what it’s like to work at your organisation? Not on any particular day, but rather, any week, any month. Typically, what is the pervasive attitude of employees? Is it energetic? Open to discussion of ideas? Or is it closed? A company of silos? Are staff secretive and nervous?

Your work-climate is comprised of the combined perceptions, feelings, and behaviours of staff, managers, and leaders. Extensive research has proven there is a link between the work-climate and overall operational performance of an organisation, and demonstrates that work-climate is a predictor of a company’s long-term profitability.

Testing the work climate is arguably the most important step of any transformation, in that it provides a signpost towards not only the areas for change but also the amount of change needed.

Measure for value

Climetrics® is a unique organisational diagnostic we use to identify work climate in all of its facets: management activities, measurement systems, structures, and delivery capabilities. Ideally those organisational pieces should combine to create an adaptive work-climate leading to high-performance and long-term profitability. If they don’t, then change should be on the agenda.

A Climetrics® survey is structured to surface the impact of management choices through a careful analysis of the perceptions, feelings and behaviours of staff and management.
