Advice to ManagementAdvice

Prêter davantage attention au risque de démotivation des employés expérimentés quand ils voient arriver de nouvelles recrues au salaire élevé alors qu'ils doivent rester avec une augmentation moyenne de 3% par an.

Be more careful about experienced employees being demotivated when they see new hires coming in with high salary while you are obliged to stay with an average 3% increase / year.

    Pros

    Culture of decency, intelligence - a place where most of the employee base is collaborative, well-wishing, open and focused on mutual success.

    Cons

    Transformation today pressures most departments to execute while still figuring out what they should execute, and even as transparency in diminishing relative to past times. Coordinated strategy-building is difficult with this amount of change, and without more open communication about in-the-moment navigation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act more like Millennials - open the curtains, talk out loud, be super-transparent and a lot braver. Open yourselves to criticism, and move forward with confidence and moxy. This is not a time to say "we need to become more current and vital", while narrowing communication and holding the cards so close to management's chest.
