HR Tech Outlook magazine highlights the innovative employee engagement solution providers who are at the vanguard of accelerating the digital transformation of the industry.
Sausalito, CA – May 20, 2019 – Arnowitz Culture Agency (ACA) today announced that the company has been named one of the “Top 10 Employee Engagement Consulting/Services Companies – 2019” by HR Tech Outlook. In determining this year’s list, the magazine turned to a panel of chief executive officers (CEOs), chief human resource officers (CHROs), and analysts. The panel selected ACA and nine other companies “based on their passion to drive innovation in the field of employee engagement and their commitment to guiding organizations to the next level.” The 2019 list was published on April 19, 2019 in the HR Tech Outlook Employee Engagement Special edition.
“Several studies and research over the last few years have shown that organizations that dedicate themselves to employee engagement have outpaced their competitors,” Hanna Wilson, HR Tech Outlook managing editor, observed in the Employee Engagement Special edition Editor’s Note. “In this new era of new age technologies, we highlight the innovative employee engagement solution providers who are at the vanguard of accelerating the digital transformation of the industry.”
The growing complaints from workforces and customers across the world is amazingly similar no matter the industry.
- “I do not have enough time.”
- “They are throwing too much training (or reports, or customer data, etc.) at me.”
- “Goals are changing too fast (or not fast enough).”
- “No one cares what I think and/or know.”
Employees and teams struggle to keep up with the blinding speed of the delivery of information, big data insights, disruptive technologies, evolving communication channels, and cultural diversity issues.
The digital transformation strategy was meant to help employees battle these issues, but in many ways, it has accelerated the problems. Employees need the right habits to prioritize, collaborate, create and curate actionable information into successful business results. Businesses often focus on speed and excellence in using and acting on customer insights. Instead, how about acting on employee development insights? The employee journey (investments in developing habits) ensures employee collaboration, engagement, creativity, and innovation can quickly adapt to organizational and market changes. Aligning employee and customer journeys has become the most critical challenge facing global business today. Succeeding in only one of these two journeys creates a severe competitive disadvantage.
Why are leadership development programs failing at most companies? Deborah Rowland helps answer the question with insights on why classroom-based learning models must be replaced by “journey-based” models. The current failures of traditional leadership development training/programs are rooted in the industrial training methodologies of the university. Ms. Rowland’s research and practice have supported the need to evolve leadership training into experiential programs that aim to change the habits and behaviors of future leaders. We agree that emotional intelligence theory has a great role to play in this new learning, but ACA research and practice has determined that cultural intelligence theory is a more powerful predictor of superior leadership performance and results. Still, Ms Rowland’s work is clearly a powerful improvement over the status quo.
A new paradigm in corporate learning circles is emerging. Say goodbye to the classroom and hello to the learning journey. A new article in Chief Learning Officer magazine describes the reinvention of corporate learning into the corporate culture function. It proposes that chief learning officers become chief culture officers, and the learning and development (L&D) department become people and engagement (P&E). Meanwhile, learning needs to change from a one-act classroom event to an ongoing learning journey that strengthens and sustains the company culture. This is a complete reshaping of corporate learning programs into culture campaign programs. It is an excellent article.
A new Chief Learning Officer Magazine article reports on a new study that concludes current corporate training programs are failing to help employees. This is actually not much of a surprise since it supports numerous other studies that have concluded the same. A new approach is really needed, and it should start by aligning with the way people actually learn and the role culture plays in this learning.
