About Lesson

Employee Experience (People Centred): Employee experience focuses on creating a workplace that prioritises the needs, well-being, and overall satisfaction of employees. This people-centred approach encompasses every aspect of the employee’s journey within the organisation, from onboarding to development and exit. By fostering a supportive, engaging, and inclusive environment, organisations aim to enhance employee engagement, productivity, and loyalty. This involves not just physical work conditions but also the emotional and psychological aspects of work life, including meaningful work, recognition, personal growth opportunities, and a positive organisational culture. A superior employee experience is linked to improved performance, innovation, and competitive advantage.

Selective Hiring (Hiring the Right People): Selective hiring emphasises the importance of recruiting individuals who are not only skilled but also a good fit for the company’s culture and values. This approach involves a meticulous selection process that assesses candidates’ competencies, attitudes, and potential to contribute to the organisation’s long-term goals. By investing time and resources in identifying the right people, organizations can build a high-performing workforce that is aligned with their strategic objectives. Selective hiring reduces turnover, fosters a strong organisational culture, and enhances team dynamics, leading to sustained organisational success.

Access to Information (Making it Easy for Staff to Access Relevant Info and Maintain Records): Ensuring easy access to information for staff involves creating transparent, efficient systems that allow employees to find and utilise the data and resources they need for their roles. This includes streamlined digital platforms for internal communication, knowledge sharing, and record-keeping. By removing barriers to information, organisations empower employees to make informed decisions, improve productivity, and foster a culture of openness and collaboration. Effective information access also supports compliance, accuracy in record-keeping, and facilitates continuous learning and innovation within the workforce.

Performance-Based Competition: Performance-based competition within an organisation refers to a culture where employees are motivated to excel based on merit and achievements. This concept encourages a healthy competitive environment where performance metrics, clear goals, and fair evaluations drive individual and team efforts. Such a culture rewards high performers with recognition, advancement opportunities, and incentives, thereby motivating all employees to strive for excellence. Performance-based competition can lead to higher productivity, innovation, and employee engagement, as it aligns personal achievements with organisational goals, ensuring that both employees and the organisation thrive together.
