Employee Engagement Solutions

Stress and burnout levels are high and the overall engagement of many employees is alarmingly low. Every organization is thinking about its employees and how they can maintain or improve engagement in a post pandemic world. People Stretch Solutions is your partner in nurturing one of the most important resources your organization has. By establishing and increasing employee commitment, motivation, loyalty and trust we create an environment that strengthens employee engagement.

PSS partners with leadership to develop strategic employee engagement initiatives by utilizing data, providing resources, communicating often, and soliciting buy-in. Employee engagement is a result of effective communication and culture, not a one time activity. PSS breaks Employee Engagement into 3 key areas: Performance Management, Culture and Change Management.

Culture

PSS supports companies in being intentional about nurturing their culture.  An organization’s mission, vision and values lay the foundation for their company’s culture.  It is important for a company to be intentional about how to preserve it in moments of growth and/or organizational uncertainty.

This culture is further built through the establishment of norms and competencies.  We believe that like a garden, culture needs to be tended to at all times at some level.

Change Management

Per Heraclitus, “The only constant in life is change.” and we aim to assist your organization through change by utilizing best practices and meeting your organization and its people where they are and managing change in a way that makes it as easy to adopt and absorb as possible. PSS will aid you in viewing change management as an ongoing strategy that is needed and not just a spot in time occurrence.  Elements of this strategy include the following:

At PSS, we are fans of the ADKAR methodology of Change Management.  It stands for Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability, and Reinforcement, which are the five elements that people need to successfully change their behavior and adopt new ways of working. The ADKAR model can help you assess the readiness and resistance of your employees, design and deliver effective communication and training programs, and sustain the change outcomes over time.
