People principle will reap rewards

first_imgPeople principle will reap rewardsOn 8 Oct 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Max Mckeown and Philip Whiteley argue that ‘people’ and ‘Strategy’ are notmutually exclusiveAnother month, another clutch of surveys showing how empowered and motivatedemployees create more successful companies. The Work USA 2002 Survey by WatsonWyatt found that returns to shareholders were three times higher at companieswith high levels of trust between managers and staff. Why does no-one believe the results? We are told that we always have tochoose between the evil but efficient ‘maximising shareholder value’ optionversus the caring, socially aware ‘stakeholder’ approach. This notion of choice between head and heart is an illusion. There is apowerful cultural myth of some intrinsic connection between exploitation andprofit-making; that the more people are demeaned and have their horizonsshrunken, the more lean and successful the business. There is solid evidence that the whole human being, freed from the shrinkingeffects of gratuitous rules, bullying and excessive cost-cutting, producesbetter business. Most managers will have been lectured over their failure to be morestrategic. But what does it mean to be strategic when most business strategiesfail and the ‘people element’ is regarded as peripheral? Specifically, the approach to strategy based on the notion of a company asan inanimate superstructure to which staff are subordinate as ‘resources’ isjust plain wrong. Research shows that mergers and restructurings on this modelnearly always fail. The myth is so strong it persuades some people to try to convert goodbusinesses into bad ones. Southwest Airlines, alone among US carriers, hasnever reported a loss. It makes development and selection of its people itscore strategic objective – yet it still comes under pressure from investors tocut ‘costs’ on recruitment and training. The ‘Unshrink’ theory replaces rules and obsessive cost measurement withprinciples. The principles are that we are not what we do, but what we canbecome. We are all human – boss and employee alike. Only good change is good,and our organisations and world are communities and not machines. It means creating a workplace for grown-up, complete people with families,brains, unfulfilled ambitions and pride. People will follow willingly when theyunderstand the principles, believe in them and are permitted the freedom tofollow their own initiative in so doing. Is it not the challenge of advanced economies to finds ways to createever-more creative, intelligence-packed products, and multi-level experiences? The door is open for the personnel profession to develop its own strategicthinking, and have the confidence to say “I refuse to draw up redundancyplans until I see some evidence that you have gauged the effects of lost skills,reduced morale and weaker customer retention”. Or “Here’s a plan totransform the pay and career structure in our call centres to equip staff toimprove the lives of the customers”. The evidence is on your side.
