Let’s redefine employee engagement in 2016

first_imgIf you feel like you’re in a rut at work, you aren’t alone. A recent Gallup poll found that 67 percent of workers aren’t engaged—or worse, they’re actively disengaged—a number that’s been pretty stagnant for the past 16 years.Somehow, despite the best of intentions, corporate culture has taken a misstep. That’s why it’s time to ditch those well-used annual engagement surveys and redefine how you view and measure employee engagement.Where The Traditional Approach to Employee Engagement Goes WrongWhen a company gets employee engagement right, you see improvements in productivity, satisfaction, and commitment. When it misses the mark, the energy in the room isn’t the only thing that might trend downward.Employee engagement efforts typically follow a cycle: The annual survey goes out, people (hopefully) complete it, results are compiled, a report comes out, and new initiatives are tested until the next survey rolls around. This rarely produces long-term results—and here’s why. continue reading » 73SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

SB : Kohl’s home run, Caira’s pitching give SU first-ever NCAA tournament win

first_imgLacey Kohl gripped her bat tightly as she waited in the on-deck circle. Kohl was fired up as she watched teammate Lisaira Daniels receive an intentional walk.The junior right fielder wanted to make Louisiana State regret its decision to pitch around Daniels to get to her. After striking out in her previous four at-bats, Kohl was determined to come through for her team.And she did. Kohl bombed a three-run home run to left-center field to break a scoreless tie in the 11th inning.‘Sai (Daniels) was on the ball all day today,’ Kohl said in a phone interview. ‘So it was a good decision by them, but then it was a bad decision because it gave me a little bit of fire and a little bit more spark.‘And the production of it was obviously very good.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textKohl’s three-run shot was the difference in a game dominated by pitching. SU ace Jenna Caira outdid LSU’s Rachele Fico to lead Syracuse (45-11) to a 3-0 win over the Tigers (38-17) in the opening game of the College Station Regional. Both pitchers went the distance, but Fico blinked first when she gave up the home run to Kohl.The Orange advance to the winner’s bracket to face the host, No. 16 Texas A&M, who defeated Sacred Heart. SU and the Aggies play at 2 p.m. Saturday.For SU, the win is the program’s first in NCAA tournament history. But after the hard-fought game, head coach Leigh Ross said the historic achievement hadn’t dawned on her yet.After a quick exit following two losses at the tournament last year, Ross was just proud of how her team played.‘It’s unbelievable,’ Ross said. ‘When we’re out on that field, we look like we belong here. We look like we belong at this level of play.’The Orange rose to the occasion behind Caira, who picked up the slack for her struggling lineup. Caira gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out 13 batters in the circle to get the win.Caira worked out of some tough situations and kept the opposing hitters off balance throughout the game to hold LSU scoreless. In the fifth inning — with runners on second and third and one out — Caira struck out two straight batters to end the inning.But she also got some from her defense. With a runner on third in the bottom of the eighth, LSU just needed one hit to end the game. Slap hitter Tiffany Shaw hit a slow roller to second base, but SU second baseman Stephanie Watts scooped the ground ball and dove headfirst to beat Shaw to first base and end the inning.Caira said the whole team never gave up and seeing those hustle plays motivated her to work harder in the circle. Caira’s adrenaline was flowing the whole game, and she was excited to throw each inning.‘After we would get three outs or something, we were like, ‘OK, here we go again, let’s do it again. Come on, let’s stay with it,” Caira said. ‘So everybody had that positive mentality. No one was giving up.’SU could have lost that mentality in the ninth inning after wasting its best opportunity to score all game. Daniels singled and went all the way to third base after an error by the left fielder. But Kohl and Hallie Gibbs both struck out swinging to strand Daniels on third.Kohl ran out to right field and threw a handful of dirt to release her frustration.‘I was pissed for a second, and then I got over it,’ Kohl said. ‘So just making sure I got over it and knew I was going to get another chance to come through.’Her next chance came in the 11th inning after Daniels was granted a free pass. And as Fico and the LSU infield met in the circle, Ross and Kohl talked. Ross simply reminded Kohl she was a good hitter.Ross said she and associate head coach Wally King had a feeling Kohl would breakout with the big hit. Ross thought about putting on a squeeze bunt play to score Daniels in the ninth, but trusted Kohl to hit a fly ball to get the run.Kohl didn’t get the job done then. But Ross could tell Kohl was due when she returned to the plate in that 11th inning.‘The next time up to bat, you’re still thinking, ‘Lacey’s going to hit it out any second,” Ross said. ‘I mean it’s inevitable.’ Comments Published on May 19, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: [email protected] [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Senators goalie Craig Anderson unsure of NHL future amid season pause

first_imgThe coronavirus pandemic has caused a degree of uncertainty for athletes all over the world, but for those who were pondering retirement at the end of this season, the situation raises even more questions. Craig Anderson is one of those players.The 38-year-old Senators goalie will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, whenever that begins. Ottawa will not make the playoffs regardless of what happens over its final 11 games. With the league having to abandon the rest of the regular season a distinct possibility, Anderson may have played his last game for the Senators or, possibly, in the NHL.  “There are definitely several games that come to mind,” he said. “The best part about my time in Ottawa was the playoff runs. We had a couple of great series, a couple of great games. Pittsburgh at home [in the 2017 Eastern Conference finals] was a good one, obviously our run to the conference finals there. Our fan base got absolutely electric and the dynamic come playoff time, that was kind of something that we eagerly look forward to, and we’re equally disappointed in ourselves as much as our fans were disappointed in us when we didn’t make [the] playoffs.” As for life after retirement, Anderson says it will likely involve another one of his passions. He has raced stock cars in the Ottawa Valley in the past and sees motorsports as a possible pursuit. “I’ve always had a passion for motorsports,” he said. “It started with our family, my father and my brother and I, we like to be at the track, we like hanging out. It’s kind of our spot to go and catch up. So there’s definitely going to be an involvement with motorsports at some point.” “I think we’re at the point now where we’re in an unprecedented area, where we’re in times that we never expected,” he told reporters in a conference call this week, “so I’m just kind of rolling with it right now and, you know, let the chips fall where they may. As an individual, I’m hopeful that we are able to get back to play and kind of finish off the rest of the year, but it’s out of my control. If it were something that I did that screwed things up for myself, it’d be different, but right now I’m not really too concerned about it.”MORE: Senators’ Thomas Chabot sees improvement despite tough seasonAnderson is 11-17-2 with a 3.25 GAA and .902 save percentage for Ottawa this season. The team was sitting in 15th place in the Eastern Conference when the season was put on hold on March 12. He said he hasn’t spent much time thinking about what the future might hold. “I haven’t put much too much thought into future plans,” he said. “I’m kind of trying to stay in the moment as best I can, stay in the now, so to speak, and kind of focus on the what-ifs for what we’re going through now. The current season is what we’re all focused on — Can we get back and finish our season? — so we’ll cross the bridge as far as future plans down the road, but as of right now I’m missing the game like crazy. I want to be on the ice, I want to be there competing with my teammates, so right now that’s the way I’m leaning — that I want to compete and continue to do what I love every day.”MORE: Gary Bettman: ‘We don’t live in a world of perfect anymore’If he has played his last game for the Senators because of the pandemic, then he’ll have been robbed of some closure, but at least he’ll leave with fond memories of his time in Ottawa.last_img read more
