Commitment and Performance: Purpose as an Incentive
Emphasis on conventional incentive systems such as opportunities for advancement offers little promise for success when it comes to retaining high potentials and key employees over the long term. Generations X and Y, in particular, are known for redefining the boundaries of the world of work: When meaningful work counts more than bonuses, you need a company where your own motives can be pursued. But what really motivates your employees?
Unique Purpose Over the Blanket Bonus Systems
What individuals perceive as meaningful differs depending on their individual motivational structure. In order to achieve sustainable commitment, it’s thus advisable to create incentive systems that take your employees’ individual motivators and retention factors into consideration. This will allow you to benefit from a measurable increase in commitment without driving up personnel costs through constantly rising bonuses.
Engagement Map: Outcome-Orientation Over Snapshots of the Moment
With our Engagement Map, we have developed a tool to systematically record commitment factors for specific target groups or for the entire company. In contrast to the conventional employee survey, which only ascertains the current atmosphere in the company, Engagement Map combines the general conditions experienced with employees’ underlying motivators and retention factors and shows how there’s room for improvement in the gap between the actual and the desired situation in terms of engagement and performance. This results in concrete measures that have the greatest possible impact – and you get empowered to work on the factors that boost commitment.
