A Culture of Job Security

3178082504_f5d3d68d8c The biggest hurdle in engaging employees is creating a culture where they feel their jobs are secure. Secure in the context that there are no guarantees in life and there are situations that are out of the company's control.

At some point in any organization's life cycle, there will be times when the path ahead holds much trepidation. During these times of trepidation, employees are very aware that something is amiss. The longer the situation goes unanswered, the quicker employee engagement wastes away.

Organizations and leaders who understand that job security is a bed rock for engaged employees immediately address these periods of stress. Leaders go out of the way to be accessible, strategies are created with the help of employees and questions are encouraged. The organization rallies to defend the job security of its employees as best it can.

The fierce protection of jobs gives employees confidence that everything that can be done is being done (in the context that was mentioned earlier). Organizations that understand this will survive these tumultuous times and in many cases thrive.  It is never to late to start working on a culture of job security.
