SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- About half (51%) of
employees, regardless of their job title or role, say
their peers are the No.1 group that inspires them to stay with
a company, according to a new report released today by Globant
(NYSE: GLOB), a digitally native technology services company.
The study also found that two out of three employees (62%) wish
they knew their coworkers better, and four out of five (83%)
believe that knowing their coworkers better would make them a more
engaged team member.
These key findings from Globant's "Powering a People-First
Culture" report highlight the direct link between close
personal connections and creating a strong organizational culture.
Based on a survey of 1,000 U.S. employees across a range of
industries, the study points to an urgent need for organizations to
increase their focus on enhancing the employee experience or risk
losing top talent.
"Organizations are continually facing new customer expectations,
new kinds of competitors, and new demands from their workforces. To
be successful in business and keep their best people, organizations
need to digitally transform, but for that to work, they need to
undergo a cultural transformation first," said Guibert Englebienne,
co-founder and CTO at Globant.
Difficulty hiring the best talent and high employee turnover
remain significant challenges with 90% of respondents report hiring
is a problem at their companies, and nearly the same number (87%)
say employee attrition is an issue. For this reason,
many organizations are increasingly investing in HR
technology. However, "the problem is that most technologies focus
almost exclusively on systematizing HR processes, not creating a
meaningful employee experience as a way of enhancing company
culture," said Englebienne.
Employees want a closer connection with their peers, and this is
a major pain point for organizations that don't have the right
technology required to meet this need, especially global
enterprises that have people spread across multiple locations.
"Many organizations believe their culture is their true
differentiator, and are increasingly realizing the impact of their
vision, values, and employee relationships on their business. What
we have experienced at Globant, that is still a significant
opportunity for many companies, is the role technology can play in
bringing the envisioned culture to life," said Sanja Licina, Ph.D, Future of Organizations
leader at Globant. "Our culture platform, StarMeUp OS, helps create
strong relationships across our company no matter the tenure, role
or geography that someone is in. In addition to bringing employees
closer together, the deep insights help leaders uncover hidden
talent and have a better view into organizational dynamics to know
