Employee engagement is low and it is impacting my KPIS.
May 20,2022 at 7:29PM UTC (Edited)
I started a new job about 4 months ago at a large multinational. Success in the position relies heavily on employees engaging in a program I took over, and I had only about a month in the position before I had to have my internal network running at 100%. Although I've done everything that was done in the past (and more!), excitement for the program has been much less than in previous iterations (think 1/3 the engagement and activity). I also hear that other internal programs are facing the same challenges, and we are certainly not immune to the great resignation, and this is the first time most of these are running "post" pandemic.
I'm not taking this too personally because there are a lot of mitigating factors here (low morale, competing programs, employee bandwidth issues, etc), and I've been told that I am doing a good job/doing everything right. But I also understand that if I can't recruit people into the program I am running, then my job is not secure. Has anyone else gone through something like this - taken over a program only to have it fizzle? What happened to you after? What should I be saying to my manager to test the waters on what happens if the program fails?

Please share your success networking stories - if you found a job through networking how did you do it?
How many people did you call? Did you find contacts on LinkedIn and approach?
I am having hard time with it. I was given notice and emailed/ texted people just to connect and talked. Very few even responded. I know it is a numbers game, but it is so lonely and discouraging - like begging for a job...
But they say it is still more effective than applying on the web.

I saw how my colleagues were freaking out and then I heard about this concept. So I did what I thought was quietly quitting - I just did the minimum required of me. Then we got our monthly numbers and I was ahead of plan!
Give it a shot!

Once someone signs an offer letter, is it generally okay to give notice to your present employer?
(Basically, it's a contract, yes?)

Is it discrimination to let the oldest employee work all nights and weekends when a younger inexperienced person is taken into a position?
We did have fair scheduling until this person came into the group, she says she can not get a baby sitter. So another employee and myself have all the nights, except one. He gets a couple of days during the week, I sometimes get one on the weekend?

Searching the internet
I was looking through job postings that are in my field just to see what's out there and I'm finding an increasing number of employers requiring a master's degree and at least 5 years of experience with salaries in the 40k range...you have got to be kidding me.
This isn't so much about me but I find that offensive. A master's degree to be paid less than the national average in the US...got it. I'm also shocked because when I started in this field about 2 years ago in an entry-level position with a bachelor's degree that was the salary range with the requirements being a bachelor's degree in a related field and no experience with the specific job required but other general skills related to it. I feel I got extremely lucky but I'm also wondering if you can move up salary-wise in this field with experience alone.
The way the goalposts are constantly being moved is outrageous.
