Employers see the benefits of responding to an increasingly individual focused world
The industrial revolution created ways of working that focused on the mass production of standardised items of every kind. The technological revolution has created the opportunity to move away from a uniform life to one that focuses on individualisation and personalisation of products and services
Henry Ford an innovator in mass production is famous for saying that a customer can have their Model T in any colour so long as that colour was black
Benefits of Personalisation
Ford along with virtually every other car manufacturer, and indeed any company knows that enabling a customer to personalise their product or service leads to less waste, and increased customer satisfaction
Personalisation Improves Performance
Robert Baker, author of Personalization at Work, writing in the autumn 2020 edition of CIPD Work magazine cited studies which found that when solving puzzles with a personalised pens, or playing golf with customise clubs people perform better than when using standard pens or clubs.
Work Remains Standardised
Despite evidence of the benefits of personalising an employee’s experience of work, employers remain fixed on a standardised approach to employment that Henry Ford would recognise.
- Structuring work around rigid job descriptions and processes enables businesses to maintain a command and control approach to management.
- Command and control managers do not trust their employees and worry that employees who personalise their work will damage the business
In reality, says Baker, research shows that when employees are given the opportunity to personalise their work, they tend to make small iterative and constructive changes that often benefit their colleagues and customers as well as themselves
Many businesses, says Baker, have benefited from enabling employees to enjoy a personalised work experience
- Enabling employees to personalise how they work, creates a reality of the rhetoric that an employer wants their employees to bring their complete, best self to work
- If employees can display their complete selves at work the employer can turn their diverse heritage, strengths, passions, and experience to a competitive advantage
