2017 is a wrap, and we spent December reflecting on our #TEAMworks series. While you look back at what you have learned these past 12 months, we hope you are setting goals for building an effective team in the new year. Here’s a quick recap of our #TEAMworks series to jog your memory and help with planning:
#TEAMworks: Talk, Equip, Acknowledge, Measure
Talk – #TEAMworks begins with conversations (‘talk with’) vs commands (‘tell to’). Talking with employees leads to better engagement and retention.
Acknowledge – #TEAMworks is a philosophy that great teams deserve trophies. Recognize and reward the great work that is being accomplished.
Measure – #TEAMworks is not afraid to be measured to achieve peak performance. You can’t improve what you don’t measure.
Finally, as the end of the year is a season filled with holiday parties, gift exchanges, and shopping madness, we wanted to shine a spotlight on the retail space from the perspective of a non-desk workforce. If you’ve ever worked in retail, these articles will be therapeutic for you. If not, you’ll benefit from gaining insight into some of the most challenging non-desk jobs during the holiday season.
A talk with the manager of a GAP about whether retail is dying and the misperceptions associated with the retail world.
10 retail workers share their Black Friday horror stories. Number 6 is crazy.
Video: A humorous take on how non-desk and office workers talk about their weekends and work schedule.
Teams that get these factors right experience success.
Digital, employee experience, workforce analytics – just a few things to watch for in 2018.
