DiSC Isn’t Some Meaningless Word.
In terms of personality tests and assessments, DiSC stands for Dominance, influence, Steadiness, and Conscientious.
Each of the letters represented in the DiSC acronym have a number of specific traits that help to define certain personality types. If you’re wondering what some of those are, here is a short assessment of each personality in the DiSC system:
Why Employee Retention Matters
In a recent survey, it was noted that only 45% of people are currently satisfied with their job. This is a frightening figure, as it is lower than it has ever been and highlights how important it is for employers to focus strongly on job satisfaction. Without this, organizations have a big chance of seeing high employee turnover, as their most talented people jump ship to other organizations.
Organizations must focus strongly on maximizing the creative abilities, talent and potential of every member of their team, which gives them a competitive advantage over others. By engaging employees, job satisfaction is greatly increased and employee turnover is reduced.
Great Customer Service Is Vital
Getting your customer service right is vital to the success of your organization. It is an integral part of your company, rather than an extension. This means that every employee should have some customer service knowledge and experience. The main assets of any business, after all, are its customers. Without them, the organization itself simply wouldn’t exist. They help the business grow, not just by them returning, but also by recommending your company to their friends and other people they know. So how do you get customer services right? There are a number of helpful hints and tips and golden rules out there that we should all be aware of.
Align People & Business Strategies
Regardless of the industry in which they work, organizations and businesses come across a variety of issues in terms of the people that work there and their performance. It has been found that the biggest issue is that the two types of strategies employed in businesses, which are people strategies and business strategies, are misaligned.
If change takes place, such as the standardization of processes, internal growth, acquisition, restructuring and so on, this misalignment tends to get worse very quickly. If a company is committed to having excellent organizational development and change strategies in place, then this misalignment is often reduced significantly.
