DEVELOPING AN EMPLOYEE ACCORD

Long Case Study

Need

Enable employees to create a social contract with management around mutual expectations

Outcome

An empowering engagement process, leading to a highly-supported shortlist of staff expectations and employee accord with management

Clearly expressed agreements setting out mutual expectations are a critical component of a healthy and vibrant work culture. Vancouver Coastal Health’s employee engagement team deployed Ethelo to streamline a real-time engagement with staff to develop an Employee Accord. The platform enabled staff to shortlist the most important set of expectations they had of management, from among 700+ potential combinations, and clearly articulate the kind of organizational support they needed in order to do their jobs effectively.

We were looking for a tool that allowed a deeper level of deliberation and engagement than was possible with surveys. What drew us to choose Ethelo was its unique ability to identify strongly supported decisions within constrained situations
