Does Your Company Need an Organizational Development Makeover?

Does Your Company Need an Organizational Development Makeover?

Sometimes as Managers, we tend to overlook the correlation between employee morale and the overall success of a company.  When employees show enthusiasm about their company and job, they tend to work harder and produce better results.  This enthusiasm also transforms employees into “word of mouth” marketers which results in a good source of free PR.  In order to achieve this type of positive work culture, the enthusiasm needs to start with upper level management and flow downward across all departments.  This can be easily achieved with a solid Organizational Development program in tow.   Implementation of a strong Organizational Development program is crucial to not only maintaining positive employee morale, but also assists with discovering ways to streamline efficiency.   How do you know if it’s time to implement an Organizational Development program in your company?

As a manager, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do my employees have an unclear definition of roles and responsibilities?
  • Does the company experience high employee turnover rates?
  • Is there a high level of daily absenteeism?
  • Is the company’s health and safety procedures perceived to be administrative and not effective?
  • Is a flexibility metric not in place?
  • Is our in-house training structured and being implemented correctly?
  • Are we communicating information properly between organization levels?
  •  Is there a communication board and is it being updated consistently?
  • Am I promoting the proper employees for new roles in the organization?
  • Is there a presence of reactive mode management causing low employee morale?
  • Do my managers lack a knowledge of understanding KPI’s and effective usage on shop floor?
  • Have we ever performed a root cause analysis and took action to reduce gaps between actuals and plans?

If you answered YES to any of these questions:
