Work Expectations Profile Individual Report (Online)
New Gap Analysis Available ONLY with Online Version!
Work expectations are those things people consider likely to happen in their job situation, either now or in the future. Whether spoken or unspoken, met or unmet, expectations have a powerful impact on our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and play a key role in driving our attitudes. Research shows that people who have clearly defined, well-communicated expectations find more satisfaction and success in their work than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. And companies that employ satisfied, successful people reap the rewards of increased productivity and reduced turnover.
The newest addition to EPIC is one you may not know a lot about—the Work Expectations Profile. Inscape developed theWork Expectations Profile. because we were hearing more about the importance of work expectations in the employment relationship from behavioral researchers. Their research has demonstrated that identifying and managing employees' expectations in the workplace leads to positive benefits for the organization.
The Work Expectations Profile helps people identify their high expectations and then learn how to communicate those expectations, take initiative to get them met, and adjust them when necessary. Inscape distributors have found the Work Expectations Profile a valuable tool in a wide range of applications, including organizational development and management development.
The Work Expectations Profile on EPIC makes it even easier for managers and employees to dialogue about their work expectations. The new Gap Analysis provides participants with an at-a-glance look at how important each Work Expectation category is to them and to what degree each is being met. This helps them quickly pinpoint which Work Expectations categories to focus on. When shared with their managers, the Gap Analysis helps to focus their discussion around those expectations that need the most attention.
