Happy, engaged employees.

Does your credit union serve the leadership development needs of its employees? Talented people are on the move, and like members, they have options. A recent Gallup survey reported 51% of employees questioned said they are either actively looking for a new job or watching for openings to seek career growth opportunities. Almost two-thirds believe they will likely find a job as good as their current one. Moreover, 90% of job-changers move to a new company. In this environment, a true test of leadership strength is retaining and attracting the talent you need. It increases engagement and helps employees bring their creativity and passion to work to execute on clear strategic plans with mission-driven values.

Executive leadership is critical to establishing and maintaining an engaged culture. Gallup found that leadership accounts for 70% of the variance in team engagement. Leadership is significantly more important than workplace perks. Smart leaders know that people want clarity in their job responsibilities and awareness of how they add value. They want to know they are valued and providing value. Employees need a sense of purpose. A culture of continual learning engages employees by supporting skill development and fostering new opportunities. Meaningful feedback is regular, building on employee strengths rather than deficiencies.
