7 organisational habits cover page


Insync Surveys' ground-breaking research of workplace culture involving over 100,000 employee responses from around 200 organisations highlights that while most Australian organisations say they put their employees first, 67% of employees from low performance organisations believe they work for organisations that don't really care about them.
 

The study identified 7 organisational habits that drive high performance in the country's most wide-ranging study of Australian workplace culture.  Key insights include:

  • Low performance organisations tend to overlook the importance of their people and are more likely to treat employees as a number or unit of labour
  • Only 24% of employees of low performance organisations are inspired by their organisation's vision
  • More than 50% of employees from low performance organisations don't believe their company is committed to achieving long-term customer loyalty
  • Only 15% of employees from low performance organisations believe there are effective plans for developing and retaining employees
  • 73% of employees from low performance organisations said their leaders don't really acknowledge or thank staff

Habits form and shape the culture of an organisation. Changing organisational habits involves changing the habits of many individuals and takes significant effort, time and committed leadership. But this small investment in achieving high performance is well worth it. These habits need to become so deeply engrained in the organisation's culture and DNA that they literally become the organisation's new way of life. They will impact every facet of the organisation, make it a better place to work, increase employee engagement and drive high performance.
