WEBINAR: Trust in digital systems to drive performance

High performance employees share a set of common traits. Qualities such as being action-oriented, intelligent, ambitious, and autonomous certainly make the list. But how can companies nurture employees to grow these traits in the entire team, not just a select group of high performers?
More and more data points to earning their trust. Yes, trust. Not incentives, not performance reviews, not better management strategies. People need to believe in order to commit. And guess what? They also need to believe in the systems behind the processes they’re expected to perform. You would think there would be a vast difference between how we trust people versus how we trust systems, but the proven fact is: people ascribe human properties to the applications they use.
Why do we need trust-centric systems?
It’s a social networking world. Even sites that weren’t intended as social networks, now are due to the ubiquity of commenting, reviews, ratings, and memberships. As we navigate these sites, we eventually choose to trust certain people in certain settings, as well as the social platforms themselves. Research shows that this applies not just to online social environments, but also to digital business systems.
One of the biggest business challenges of the era is to cultivate trust with employees to earn their engagement. But today, you not only need to build trust in the traditional way on a human-to-human level, you also need to offer a digital handshake — a cooperative agreement that the company’s systems will support and propel what people do on a day-to-day basis. Once this multi-fold, modern version of trust is established, you’ll have what it takes to build high-performance teams.
