Absolutely an awesome event! Very well executed, one of the best
I have attended in quite some time! Kudos!
Being involved in the first TINYcon was an honor and fantastic learning experience. Meeting and networking with many different organizations around the world.
Most companies are trying to find ways to make employees feel valued and I discovered multiple ways we can start, all of which can be done through at least one of the TINY products!

You’re proud of your investments in improving the employee experience at your organization. You’re feeling good about keeping cultural debt low as you’ve not made any formal organizational culture promises without being 100% confident they would be kept. You’re delighted with your retention numbers among top performers and just wish that you could find more of them by getting your great employee value proposition to be better known. Maybe social media can help attract the top talent you seek?

 

Then you look at Glassdoor and it’s like you’ve gone through the looking glass in a very unpleasant way. The picture painted there seems to magnify your organizations growing pains into gigantic concerns that ill-intentioned management have proven time and time again to be determined to ignore! While your engagement scores were going up and to the right on internal measures – over at Glassdoor it’s the ugly mirror image. Your company is being accused of breaking promises that you feel confident were never made! What do you do???

People hate feedback, but giving and receiving feedback is core to fostering company and employee growth. At Magoosh, we noticed how our team cringed at the mere mention of feedback, so we set out to change that. By implementing a few easy changes to our workflow, we were able to make feedback not just something people have to do, but something people look forward to doing. Here’s how.

CEO’s hate the term “change management.” Instead, what they really want is “change exploitation.” Today’s business environment is forcing organizations to be more agile than ever to thrive—let alone survive—and HR must be equally responsive.

 

In this session, Kevin Oakes, CEO of the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp), will walk through what high-performance organizations are doing to develop a more agile, innovative culture that doesn’t just “manage” change, but instead embraces it and exploits it.

The Ownership Culture: How to Build a Culture of Employee Engagement and Empowerment

Companies that empower employees create a sense of ownership and a culture that encourages employees to engage with each other and with clients in a more meaningful way. In this environment, employees view themselves as stakeholders leading to more strategic thinking, a greater focus on positive outcomes, and a consistent effort to increase value, business results and revenue.

 

This session is not about how to set up an ESOP program. Rather, we will focus on how to implement an approach that encourages your entire team to live and breath “We don’t just work here”. We call this the Ownership Culture. In this session, participants will have an opportunity to identify ways to drive employee engagement in their own businesses as we review and discuss success stories including how this approach can overcome challenges and improve results during “hard times.” Attendees will leave this session with tools, ideas and processes to begin a transformation to an employee ownership culture.”

Forward-thinking organizations are surveying employees frequently and utilizing sophisticated analytical approaches to understand employee engagement. Promising new academic research nearly doubles the predictive value of these models by considering how people currently feel and where they perceive things are going.

 

In this session we explore the dynamic predictors of those who desire to leave an organization but stay in it (reluctant stayers) and estimate the consequences of their staying. We quantified the financial impact of retaining reluctant stayers in the fundraising function of two non-profit organizations. On average, enthusiastic stayers raised $1.25 million more than reluctant stayers over three years.
