Wow. Such great insights already! My fastest/simplest assist is I second the advice of Drumm, Neal, Mike, Colette and Alan!
And then I'd like to add a new dimension not yet covered here...
That the future of work is going to look very different than it looks today, and the best thing you can do is begin now.
Here a study my team and I recently finished: The Future of Work: 2015-2020
Key finding: The relationship between companies and employees, overall, HAS to change.
The future will be a lot less about reassuring our teammates about their career... (matter of fact, the disruptive changes are only going to become more massive, more volatile and happen a lot more frequently)... and that companies need to be more about helping the workforce achieve THEIR dreams, not just the company's mission. Essentially, a lot more of a 50/50 partnership.
A practical first step to doing that:
• a la Drumm's insight "People support what they help create"...
• Involve them in facilitated "What does the future of work look like" conversations, training, development and offsites
• Will that directly help the issues you asked about? No.
• But here's what it does do... Over a period of several conversations, they begin to realize...
"Oh, it's not just here. The entire world of work is changing. I guess I better start thinking differently, changing what I expect this (or any company) to do for me, and do a lot more of it myself... me thinking and acting differently."
I have worked in change management for over a quarter century and this technique ALWAYS succeeds (with about 80% to 90% of people. There will always be a few holdouts!)
When people participate in this kind of discussion, they realize something that only they can choose to embrace... "Oh, I'M THE ONE WHO HAS TO CHANGE."
Your job is to lead them to and help facilitate those Aha moments!
Hope that helped.
