Overcoming Boredom and Discontent in the Workplace

Quality Progress published an article in the January 2011 edition (“Happiness Helps,” Tom Becker) about how to elevate employee engagement with a career development plan.  Why is it important to empower employees to be engaged and happy partners in their own career development plans?  Here are a few reasons:

  • Employees will perform at their true potential
  • Higher retention of employees
  • Lower absenteeism
  • Higher productivity and performance

A Right Management survey ranked “learning and development opportunities” as more important to employees than pay.   In fact, according to the QP article, “Organizations that provide career development opportunities are six times more likely to engage their employees than organizations that do not.”

Today’s employer knows that the best employees seek employment opportunities where they can not only express their individual talents but also realize their goals.  Creating a workplace environment where employees have the opportunity for learning and development opportunities will attract and retain top employees.

TapRooT® root cause analysis training is one way to engage employees and prevent discontent.  Offer a career development opportunity to your employees that includes this proven technique for finding the root causes of incidents, accidents, quality problems, near-misses, operational errors, hospital sentinel events, and other types of problems.  Give them the tools to make a difference at your facility:  to work proactively at reducing downtime and injuries on the job.
