The Unseen Gap Between Employer and Employees

  • The Unseen Gap Between Employer and Employees

The Employee Outlook

 

All Employees in an organisation are assigned certain responsibilities to be completed within a certain amount of time. There are times they feel like they are working day in and day out with limited resources and tools. The constant question ringing in their mind is, ”Am I at the right place? Am I utilising my skills well?”

 

Employees may or may not always see things beyond their own capabilities. Their desire to outperform every single task assigned may not be aligned with the organisation’s core objectives.

 

The Employer Outlook

Employers may or may not always see beyond their existing business potential as they are inclined towards the company’s overall reputation. They probably have a business plan in mind linked to certain company objectives. Their main motto is maximizing resources and tools crucial in achieving good profit.

They keep thinking often whether the employees are putting in enough effort to generate impressive results pointing towards business growth.

 

Employer and employees may not always think on the same track because their reason to join the organisation was different from Day 1. Here lies the gap that needs to be intervened at the right time and in the right way.

 

HR’s Role in Bridging the Gap

Define the Impact of Effort on Targets

When employees are aware of how their work quality is impacting the team’s combined targets, it is a major ego boost for them. This must be put into the employee’s conscience from the first day itself.

 

Invest in Peak Performers

When it comes to hiring top talents, go for the ones who fit your organisation's business goals. If he/ she has been hired for job A, you can also evaluate his skills for future needs. The main advantage in this is that you are utilising full capabilities of the employee if he turns out to be skilled in more than one field.

 

Create an Effective Work Environment

When organisations get to utilise those skill set of employees which are aligned with the business performance, change occurs. When performance expectations are clear, there is no room for a negative cycle of dialogues like, “This is not what I want..” or “This is not how it is done...”

 

HR professionals always face some challenges in meeting the demands of employees’ and employers’ while ensuring a smooth workflow.
