workplace cultureOver the past two weeks we have been sharing recaps of all of our 2017 articles. This is the third and final installment in that series. It covers all our articles covering research, polls and workplace culture.

In week one we reviewed all of the articles in our Management, Leadership, and HR Issues category. This post focuses on all things hiring, firing, delegating, growing and much more. In week two, we shifted our focus to employees with our Employee Engagement category. Employee engagement topics vary from employee involvement in the workplace to commitment to job satisfaction. Make sure to check back on weeks one and two if you missed them.

In this final installment, we move to our Research, Polls and Workplace Culture category. we concentrate on the latest research from 2017 that applies to team building strategies. It also applies to  employee productivity and successful workplace culture practices. This is all within the current economic environment.

TIGERS®’s assessment of the year is that work culture is in flux.  Some companies that have been in existence for nearly 100 years have folded.  Their products and services are not relevant in the new economy.  We predict many more will fold, merge, or be bought out in the coming year.  This all points to the complexities of workplace culture.

Employees are also having more say in how companies are run. In those work environments that appeal to Millennials, the expectation for sound positive group dynamics and opportunity for professional growth and learning is growing.

The learning landscape is also in flux.  Gone are the days of one-off training where employees spend one full day or more in face-to-face live training.

Webinars are also dropping away. Training transference into improved skills and attitudes is lacking in webinar-based learning venues.  Instead, we saw the development of systems-based training that combines learning with planning initiatives followed by micro-training that makes sure the training is consistent and transfers to measurable, improved performance. More companies are tracking this for their return on investment.

This spiked interest in the TIGERS Workforce Behavioral Profile™ by trainers with learning management systems seeking to provide proof of learning transference for soft skill training.  Training such as communication, conflict resolution, problem-solving, diversity and sexual harassment improve the group dynamic, work culture and employee behavior.  This is clearly seen in the TIGERS Workforce Behavioral Profile assessment results.

We’ve made it easy to review all of the articles in this category, and once you’re done, make sure to go back and review any of the articles you missed in parts one and two.
