Employee Alignment: Ensuring A Shared Direction with Your People

Starting a year right isn’t just about setting goals, it’s also about Employee Alignment, and ensuring that our people are aligned and aware of our goals too.

However, many of our clients have asked us this question: “What is Employee Alignment, and why is it important for our business?”

What is Employee Alignment?

Employee alignment is:

“the process of ensuring that an employee's goals, objectives, and actions are consistent with the organization's mission, vision, and strategy”.

In other words, it’s about making sure what our people do at work fits with our organization's daily operations and goals.

Here are some reasons why aligning our people matters for our business:

1. Improved decision-making:

  • When our people aren’t aligned with our organization, they may be unsure of what their workplace really wants.

  • This indecision can harm our business’ productivity and performance.

  • With employee alignment, you can avoid or minimize such situations.

  • When our employees understand the organization's goals and objectives, they are better able to make decisions that align with those goals.

  • This leads to better decision-making, and in turn better productivity and performance.

2. Prevents conflict:

  • Indecision may also lead to conflicts of interest between our people

  • Aligning employees helps in such a scenario.

  • When everyone in the organization is working towards the same goals and objectives, there is less room for conflict and misunderstanding.

  • This helps our organization ensure that our work processes are able to run smoothly and effectively.

3. Improved retention:

  • Today’s employees don’t leave their organizations solely because of salary.

  • They will also leave if they feel that they are unable to share their organization’s goals, objectives and views.

  • With employee alignment strategies our people are able to share, or work together with the organization’s vision and mission.

  • That way, they are more willing to stay with us in the long run.

4. Improved employee satisfaction:

  • When our employees are aligned with what we do, they are more likely to feel a sense of purpose and meaning in their work.

  • This makes them feel more satisfied with what they do at work.

  • It also helps boost their productivity and performance.

5. Improved customer service

  • Ultimately, aligning our employees with what we do helps them better understand what they are selling, promoting or representing to our clients.

  • They are able to understand their roles and how they contribute to their workplace or organization.

  • In turn, this helps motivate them to provide the best products and services to our customers.
