A Problem Companies and Workforces Face Today


- Gallup

Professional Development

Companies today understand the value of training their workforces to achieve professional success. However many companies struggle to find new ways to help their employees achieve consistent and ongoing personal growth and success.

Why Personal Development?

Our fundamental belief is that a person will never achieve his or her full potential without some level of consistent and ongoing personal development.

“Happy employees are 31% more productive, 3 times more creative, and earn 37% more money.”
- Harvard Business Review

A New Approach

What would happen if a company devoted a small fraction of their professional development resources to personal developmemt? Over time, their workforce would be happier, more productive, more loyal, and more engaged.

Because the truth is that only inspired, fulfilled, happy people are able to become amazing, loyal, engaged employees.

Companies that embrace this shift in thinking and devote a small portion of their professional development resources to personal development will attract and retain the best talent in the years ahead.

How ZIDIWORK Improves Company Culture

Employee Perspective:

We all take time during the day to recharge our batteries; not because we are tired, but because we need to find a little inspiraiton to get us through the rest of the day.

Employees check Facebook, make personal calls, go for walks, browse the internet, chat with coworkers, and daydream. Everyone does their own thing.

With ZIDIWORK, we take some of that "recharge" time and channel it into something positive. Instead of another funny cat video, it's an inspirational story that just might cause that person to make a positive change in their life. Plus, because everyone watched the same videos and read the same stories, coworkers have someting positive to talk about when they need a break from talking about daily tasks.

This slow drip of unifying, positive content slowly changes what people think, what they talk about, and the actions they take. That is a positive change in any company's culture.

Manager Perspective:

Good managers and team leaders are always looking for effective ways to motivate their teams. They spend time and money with forwarding motivational emails, team pep talks, team-building activities, contests and prizes, office parties, breakroom snacks, motivational speakers, etc.

Yet, we still have an overwhelming number of employees today who are actively disengaged at work. Traditional manager-to-employee motivational techniques aren't resulting in high production, happiness, engagement, or employee retention.

With ZIDIWORK, Managers will have the tools to inspire their teams, not just motivate. Managers will earn affection and loyalty by encouraging their teams to grow as people, not just as workers. And, managers can save a good amount of the time and money they typically spend on motivational activities that have yielded poor results.

By leveraging our unifying material, managers can slowly improve the culture, engagement, and productivity of their teams.

Company Perspective:

Every employee and manager is spending time and resources to find inspiration. But, with no unifying themes or cohesive plan, everyone is effectively walking in different directions. This is a massive opportunity lost, because company culture cannot improve if everyone is doing their own thing.

With ZIDIWORK's consistent, unifying, thematic content, everyone can taking positive steps in the same direction, improving company culture, happiness, engagement, and employee retention.
