How to get more discretionary effort from employees

PI Worldwide

How do you drive employees to achieve results with vision and passion? How do you get them to go above and beyond—rather than putting in the minimum level of effort required to keep their jobs? Think about employee effort in terms of “want to” and “have to.”

Expanding on the "Culture-As-Operating-System" Metaphor

Human Workplaces

If you know me at all, you probably know I like metaphors, and a popular one when it comes to culture is the idea that your workplace culture is like an operating system, or OS: it dictates what can and can’t happen in your organization, just like an OS sets the rules and boundaries for what can and can’t happen in a computing environment. Software applications must be built specifically FOR the operating system, just like your specific organizational processes or structures must be built FOR your culture, otherwise they just won’t work. Truth be told, I don’t know the details of how an operating system really works, but on the surface anyway, the metaphor seems to hold up. For instance, both cultures and operating systems are often “invisible” to people. They’re in the background. Your real focus tends to be on the work—the software applications in the computer context and the, well, work in the workplace context. It’s only when things are NOT working well that you might turn your attention to the culture or operating system and consider upgrading it or changing it. A lot of these metaphors kind of stop right there, though. Your culture is your OS, and that’s why some change efforts fail, and maybe periodically we should look at “upgrading” our culture to make it better. But if you really want to use this metaphor, there are some other elements of operating systems you need to think about. Like remember when you installed that OS and clicked a box that said it was okay for your computer to send information back to Apple or Microsoft any time an application crashes? Both the OS maker and all the software makers are constantly monitoring, evaluating, and changing their products to ensure a smooth user experience. The same is not true with your culture, or at least for most cultures. Cultures will go years without ANY structured data going back and forth between users (employees) and makers (bosses). And as a computer user, you are separate from the computer and the software. Other people/institutions are responsible for that development. But in an organization, you’re both the user and the maker of the culture. If you really took the OS metaphor seriously, you’d be treating culture MUCH differently. There would be constant feedback mechanisms in place, and it wouldn’t ONLY be employee experience data. Many organizations make this mistake. They think that employee experience surveys are diagnostic tools you can use to fix the culture, and that’s not quite accurate. Sitting in between your culture and your employees’ experience is a bundle of processes, systems, and structures (think of them like the software applications). You need to be fixing the software AND the operating system at the same time. So yes, the EX data are critical, but you’ll need to connect the dots between those data, your culture data, and your ongoing work to shift processes and systems to improve your culture. This is what we mean when we say “ culture design.” It’s continuous, integrated with employee experience, rich with data, and always focused on tangible changes that improve results. Photo by ????
