HR, you’ve got a lot on your plate! And the pressures and priorities just keep piling on. But you can’t take on employee success alone—and you shouldn’t have to.
Everyone in your organization plays a part.
We know you feel the weight of it all.
Your leaders are more worried than ever about disconnection and productivity.
Your managers are struggling to lead their distributed teams.
Your employees are doubting that your leaders actually value their people.
But employee success is a shared responsibility.
Everyone in your organization owns employee success.
Employee success is not for HR to own independently. However you do have a mission-critical responsibility to empower others to play their part in making your workplace better. You’ll need everyone in your organization to lean in if you want to build a culture that thrives.
Employee success unites your entire workforce around one common goal.
It’s a holistic and highly strategic approach to help your organization succeed, including:
Creating an engaging employee experience
Inspiring employee impact
Building a magnetic culture
Create an engaging employee experience by understanding, validating, and improving upon what matters most to employees.
Inspire employee impact by connecting employees to the role they play in helping achieve business success.
Build a magnetic culture by constantly striving to become a workplace where employees want to stay and talent wants to join.
Creating an environment that prioritizes employee success is a team effort.
Each component of employee success—experience, impact, and magnetism—is important on its own. But the magic happens when you prioritize all three elements, together.
Getting your leaders and teams to buy in may feel like an uphill battle at times. But it’s critical to the stability and success of your organization. You need everyone to play their part.
Creating a culture of us.
When it’s easy for everyone to participate in making work better, you evolve into a “culture of us.” Everyone feels invested in your organization’s problems and opportunities. It becomes easier to:
Navigate change together
And everyone can spend more time on the work that matters, helping your organization grow and thrive.

The Role of HR in Employee Success
HR should act as a driver and a coach, working to engage all levels of the organization in employee success initiatives. They partner with stakeholders to put strategies into action—helping to define, launch, communicate, measure, and adjust key initiatives.
HR works to influence and inform senior leaders, empower and equip managers, and support employees. They build processes and systems and secure the right tools and technology to help the organization thrive.
The Role of Senior Leaders in Employee Success
Senior leaders should serve as the organization's biggest advocates for employee success. They are the most powerful influencers of an organization's culture, and their attitudes toward employee success trickle down and influence every part of the company.
Senior leaders should demonstrate an enthusiastic attitude toward engagement, performance, and retention initiatives. They should craft the long-term vision and communicate changes in strategy along the way.
The Role of Managers in Employee Success
Managers work most closely with employees, making them the number one touchpoint for communication and feedback. Managers should listen to and help elevate employee opinions and concerns to HR and leadership.
Managers should also be held accountable to implementing employee success initiatives. They must develop trusting relationships, ask for feedback, and recognize, coach, align, and develop their team members.
The Role of Employees in Employee Success
Employees are essential to employee success initiatives. It starts with employees' willingness to provide open and honest feedback about their experience at work. And working together with managers and leaders to develop solutions.
“Mobilizing your teams is a critical component to your success as an HR leader and as an organization. Employee engagement is not something you can run solo – it’s not for you to own independently. It requires the entire organization to be committed and to become champions of engagement."
