Understanding employee motivation and aspiration is key to creating a high performance culture

A new global career survey of employees released today by Right Management finds that only 10 percent of employees define career success as high performance and productivity. These findings indicate an ongoing disconnect between employee aspirations and the performance demands of employers worldwide.

Employees rank work/life balance higher than performance

26 percent of employees define success in the workplace as enjoyment/happiness, followed by salary (19 percent), doing the best work (18 percent), respect and recognition (15 percent), and high performance (10 percent).

With only 10% of employees defining career success as high performance and productivity, it’s clear that organizations must make development a priority, and enable their leaders to mentor employees to expand their skills, capabilities and experience.

Leaders need to show respect

53 percent of employees say respect for their knowledge and experience is their top expectation of leadership. Others include mutual trust (51 percent), transparency (37 percent), learning and development (32 percent) and a relationship of equals regardless of job title (30 percent). In Europe, mutual trust is the top expectation of leadership.

Choosing the road to high performance

Many companies claim to have a high-performance culture, but the reality is that very few do. Maybe this infographic can help! But remember change does not come overnight!
