Those lyrics are reflected in one stark statistic given to us by Gallup in their State of the Global Workplace report: 85% of employees are not engaged or actively disengaged at work.,If I were to put Ms. Tempest’s lyrics in front of you and say, “This is what one of your employees is saying about their job.”,In short, he explains that the distinction between these two kinds of motivations looks like this:
Extrinsic motivation is the kind of motivation driven by the promise of some external reward, (e.g., a paycheck, a pay raise or the fear of losing a job).,Called the SEEKING system, it is “believed to function as an objectless appetitive system — a ‘goad without a goal’ — until the exploratory disposition it produces leads to the discovery and learning of useful regularities.”,According to the Gallup data, the majority of the disengaged employees still show up and do their jobs (i.e., enough to get the extrinsic reward of the paycheck).
In addition to every trust agreeing objectives for representation of BME staff in selection panels, disciplinaries etc, we must implement equality and diversity initiatives that the evidence base demonstrates are most effective in reducing discrimination.,This includes raising awareness of the critical role of allies from groups who change culture by speaking up when they see BME staff or patients being ignored, treated with incivility, spoken over or otherwise subjected to the weathering micro-interactions which corrode the values of compassion and inclusion.,A focus on setting goals for increasing inclusion and compassion while reducing discrimination at individual, team and organisational level is likely to achieve culture change.,Changing culture also involves raising awareness among all staff and patients of the subtler aspects of discrimination that are more difficult to identify and change such as repeated negative but not overtly racist ‘humour’ directed at BME staff and patients.,Compassionate leaders who focus on the vision of caring for patients reinforce the fundamental altruism and intrinsic motivation of NHS staff, thereby indirectly making discrimination less likely and increasing the likelihood of innovation.
