Case Study #3 | Combating Low Employee Engagement

Posted in Case Studies

Scenario: Employee engagement and productivity is low and there is significant tension between management and employees – implementing an Emotional Intelligence program, transforms communication and increases productivity. 

The Challenge

Employee engagement is very low and employee stress is at an all-time high. Management isn’t effectively communicating with employees, causing tension and decreasing productivity.

The Marshall Connects Solution

Often we do not understand how our words impact other employees. In negative work environments such as this, we suggest implementing and integrating a 6-week Emotional Intelligence program that includes group and one-on-one consulting, for all employees and specialized training for management.

Interactive workshops are held monthly with the executive team. These workshops feature training on the four core skills of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. In addition, we review corporate values and employee values.

Within 6 weeks a noticeable difference will be apparent for both management and employee relations. Overtime, meetings that used to end up in frustration are now more productive since team members having a better understanding of their impact on themselves and others.

Our Emotional Intelligence programs transform communication between employees and management, resulting in a higher level of productivity, employee engagement and a lower level of employee stress.
