Cielo’s Dawn Hollingworth, Director of Brand Strategy & Creative Services, recently authored an insightful piece for HR Zone titled, “How to Cultivate a Winning Mindset in Your New Joiners.” Dawn recognizes that once a person says yes to a job offer, there is a tremendous opportunity for employee engagment, to instill in them a sense of excitement and passion for their new job – not only giving them more chance for success but turning them into an enthusiastic ambassador for your employer brand.
Dawn provides several examples of ways organizations can go about tapping into the great attitude and fresh energy of new employees.
Excerpt from the article:
“In order to positively influence individuals, we need to understand the common drivers that inspire people to be happy, to belong and to invest their best into an organisation.
A valuable tool is the PERMA model, a proven framework for happiness and wellbeing created by psychologist Martin Seligman. This model has been successfully implemented by organisations as diverse as McKinsey’s through to the U.S army. The principle here is simple: when employees are happy and well, they are positive and productive in the workplace.
PERMA stands for:
Positive emotion – cultivating a positive outlook; feeling stimulated, valued and having fun.
Engagement – focusing on things we enjoy and care about; playing to strengths and passions.
Relationships – enjoying positive and healthy relationships and meaningful connections
Meaning – deriving a sense of purpose from our activities; knowing we make a difference.
Achievement – accomplishing worthwhile goals and feeling satisfied.
