What is everyone hearing on the employee engagement survey? My district communication was touting the score which improved by 2 points over last Year's survey. I asked the question in our meeting "did last Year's number include feeder drivers?" The HR guy turned to face the screen and I think he had throw up in his mouth! How is a score of only non-union people that is 2 points over last year's full population a good score? The compensation section looked like a disaster to me. The HR guy sounded like Obama! He clearly had talking points from Atlanta - hope, opportunity, future prospects, growth potential. On any question that was asked, he talked for 15 minutes. All told - a 1.5 hour focus meeting turned int 5 questions and the HR guy blathering on and on. Must have been a check the box task that had to be done, he did not want to be there, did not listen, and took zero notes. I'm sure his report back up the chain was "all good here, everyone has received the message! Sad, sad, sad. The clicking you hear in the background are the folks at Harvard Business Review writing the case study on what happens when you choose quarterly earnings over culture and loose a century old company. We're the generation that couldn't stop the foolish mugging from the few at the top.
