In the post, What Employees Want, we discussed the importance of knowing the purpose, mission, and values of your organization in order to drive performance. Today, we are going to talk about how to link your mission and values to those of your employees – current and future – in order to engage them in the business.
Once you understand the purpose of your business, you must link it to the individual goals and values of every employee and potential hire. This is a heck of a lot easier to write than it is to do, granted – and it’s the foundation of the culture of your business.
At Driven for Life we created what we call the Y Model. The Y Model shows how to hit the sweet spot of employee engagement while furthering your business. It’s where the individual goals of the person collide with the goals of the company. Where those two intertwine is the place where top performance is driven.
