Deloitte’s South-East Asia Human Capital Trends 2015 reported that culture and engagement is the third most significant human capital issue in this region.
Globally, employee engagement is the No. 1 concern.
In a new world of work, where organisational structure is becoming less hierarchical, transparency – also termed “the naked organisation” – is key to attracting and retaining top talent.
The millennials entering the workforce are looking for an enriching experience in companies, where they can contribute meaningfully and purposefully. In other words, they are looking for companies with “soul” experience.
You feel it in your gut if a company has a soul. After all, at the heart of every organisation is a mission and a purpose of its existence. Perhaps companies such as AirAsia, Starbucks and Google spring to mind.
And this is where the company’s soul comes alive, because of the people in the organisation who truly believe in fulfilling a higher purpose through core values and corporate culture.
