CAREER EXPERT Dear Chris, I’ve been in my current job as a Financial Planner for more than three years. I’m now looking for a new role with more development and career progression opportunities as this doesn’t appear to be a priority for my employer. Is now a good time to change jobs and what advice can you give me on finding a new job? Many thanks, Max Dear Max, The hiring intentions of employers are certainly positive and there are many more opportunities available, particularly for high calibre candidates with solid experience.

Depending on your education and experience you may find yourself with multiple offers. If that’s the case, just remember your criteria and the reasons you were looking for a new role in the first place.

If you haven’t already done so, you should first speak with your current employer about your career goals. Think of your career plan along the lines of a business plan. The key issues to cover are:

Regards, Chris Mead General Manager HAYS Singapore

What are my long-term career objectives? What will I want to get out of my job in the next five years or so? Do I need to study? If so, what for? What are my individual priorities?

You may find your employer is more than willing to offer you development opportunities and plan for your career progression once you’ve broached the subject. But if they’re not then at least you’ve had an open dialogue which will make it easier to explain your reasons for leaving when the time comes. You have a number of resources available to you when looking for a new job. Consider your own network of contacts. Many opportunities become available through referrals and "word of mouth" -so, if you are able, spread the word amongst close friends as to what sort of role you are looking for. Not everyone is good at keeping things confidential, so take care with regard to who you tell.

continues from front page It’s hard, most would say impossible, to get more out of workers without first getting them truly excited and motivated about what they do. And yet that is what many organisations are currently trying to do, as Singapore pushes to boost its long term productivity growth by a sustained 2-3% per year. The fact is that without real and effective employee engagement, organisations will never be able to achieve that ambitious target. The latest research shows that a highly engaged workforce can be as much as 50% more productive than one that simply turns up to work because it has to. This, according to Right Management, results in 56% higher customer loyalty and a 44% increase in retention rates. Overall, Right Management considers a highly engaged workforce to be one third more profitable. It’s no wonder therefore that organisations in Singapore are looking at their engagement levels as the most important metric in the years ahead. Fortunately, HR has the chance to take an early positive first step, with Right Management’s free learning sessions at this year’s HR Summit Expo.

Marako Marcus - Free training on Engaging Productivity exclusively at HR Summit, 6 & 7 May 2010, Suntec Singapore

Marako Marcus, Principal Consultant, Right Management will run sessions on “Driving Productivity” throughout each day of the Expo. All attendees are welcome to join in the interactive and informative learning sessions on May 6 and or 7 at Suntec Singapore.

The real drivers of engagement Right Management’s Global Benchmarking Employee Engagement Study asked employers from all over the globe a series of questions on organisational effectiveness. It then correlated that information with the organisation’s own self-reports to determine which factors contribute most to overall employee engagement. The results may surprise some. Most important is the issue of organisational culture. While many employers experience success with increasing material benefits, such as salary levels or bonuses, a much stronger approach can be to really shine light on the values an organisation holds important, and bring programmes and processes into line with them. “Engaged employees expect more than material incentives,” the report found. In fact, among the survey’s more than 90 statements, the one that showed the highest correlation with engagement was: “I am committed to my organisation’s core values.” By comparison: “There is sufficient incentive to perform well at my organisation” ranked only 19th. Of the values that earn this much needed engagement, a commitment to local communities is one of the most important. Employees also respond to a visible focus on customers and what Right Management calls a “democratised” workplace, where workers know that their opinions are valued and sought-after. Filling out the top five engaging organisational values are a willingness to empower staff, and a commitment to “fairness” in the workplace.

Expert training So how can HR translate this key information into productivity success on the workplace floor? Expert training is often the first and most important step. With Right Management’s free learning programme at HR Summit Expo, HR professionals of all levels can take some strong ideas away, and begin implementing them immediately in their own organisations. The Driving Productivity programme is especially designed to cater for business needs in today’s volatile economy. In particular, Marcus will look at ways to measure engagement in a workforce, ways to influence engagement positively, and how to equip staff with the skills and tools to help meet organisational objectives. Marcus boasts an enviable track record in business education. He has formerly led HR and learning and development with multinationals across Asia. He will lead the interactive and stimulating programme three times a day during the HR Summit Expo. Sessions start at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on both May 6 and 7. A further session will be held at 5.30pm on the first day of the event.

Lessons to learn Take advantage of Marcus’s extensive experience and training skills and you’ll leave HR Summit Expo with more than just a showbag of goodies. You’ll be able to immediately implement some of their take-home strategies for an instant return and a real boost to both employee engagement and overall productivity. Participants will learn and appreciate the real drivers of employee engagement worldwide and also understand the connections between engagement and high performance and productivity. They’ll also take home practical tools, processes and methodologies to enhance each of these important metrics in their own workplaces. Finally, participants will receive an update on the latest Right Management Whitepaper: Employee Engagement – Maximising Organisational Performance.

Where and when? The Driving Productivity training session is open to all those attending the free HR Summit Expo. Simply arrive at Suntec Singapore and register at the event entrance. Alternatively you can book online at www.hrsummit.com.sg May 6: 11:00am, 1:00pm, 3:00pm and 5.30pm May 7: 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm

The engagement key Right Management shows a highly engaged workforce: • Is 50% more productive • Enjoys 56% higher customer loyalty • Registers a 44% higher retention rate • Is 33% more profitable
