In our last TietoEVRY global leadership call before the summer we had an inspirational session with Lucy Adams from Disruptive HR who has introduced the EACH model - "Employees as Adults, Consumers and Human Beings". Lucy has experience from leading in a disruptive world being the former HR Director at BBC.
My summary of the EACH model:
Challenge - every leader is trying to create more:
the EACH model:
ADULT CONSUMER HUMAN
Treat employees as ADULTS
- not too much
- not too
Start from a position of Trust
Principles, not policies
Employees can take responsibility
Encourage innovation and agility
Treat employees as CONSUMERS
provide a tailored approach that meets each individual need:
- how do I learn?
- where do I want to work?
- what makes me feel valued?
Treat employees as HUMAN BEINGS
Redesign your people processes so employees:
- are encouraged to perform better
- feel more included
- feel more valued
