Hiroyuki Akabane, CEO of Ashita Team “Presidents who are unable to grasp the needs of employees and changes in modern work styles” It is noteworthy that more than one in three people are considering changing jobs due to dissatisfaction with or distrust of the president, but this is an overall number, so in companies where dissatisfaction with or distrust of the president is strong, the number is higher, about one in two. I have a feeling that he may be thinking of changing jobs. I believe that this problem is caused by the fact that many managers are not paying attention to the changing times and are unable to understand the needs of their employees and changes in modern work styles.
In fact, 64.6% of employees answered that the president’s ideas are outdated. The number one thing that I think is “outdated” about my company is the “salary system,” but in my experience of being involved in personnel system reforms for over 4,000 small and medium-sized companies, I believe that the idea of ​​”appropriately evaluating results and providing appropriate compensation” is However, there are still many cases of old salary systems based on seniority, so it can be said that there is a strong correlation with the results. Additionally, the top answer for “things that they do not appreciate about the president” was “nurturing successors” (52.6%), more than half of the respondents. Nowadays, even hereditary inheritance may not be possible. However, in companies where the social purpose of the business and the mission, vision, and values ​​are firmly established, there are many cases where the overall motivation, including executives and managers, is high, and the business is succeeded and continues to exist. I’m here.
A drama that comically depicts the gap between “Showa” ideas and modern values ​​has become a hot topic, but working people’s values ​​and sense of “appropriateness” are also changing rapidly. In order for small and medium-sized enterprises to continue to grow and carve a path to the future, it is essential that they continue to actively and flexibly design and review changes in various systems, structures, and organizational cultures, including human resources, in line with changes in the world. Is it not?
