Aligning Employees to Company Goals

The problem that exists in the case study provided is a mismatch between the company’s mission and employees’ mission. The mission of the company is to use massage to heal clients. In this sense, massage is viewed as a therapy for healing. On the other hand, Raquel believes that massage is a source of peace and balance. The therapeutic role of a massage is for the client to attain the peace and balance they require that would improve the quality of their lives. Though both the company and the employee have the same ultimate goal, to heal clients, they are working on two different missions. The existing gap is likely to affect the quality of services in the business. Consequently, there will be reduced customer engagement and job satisfaction, which may lead to low returns. In this sense, the employee goals do not align with the company goals.

In this business context, a decision has to be made to ensure the employee s aligned to the business gals to avoid further damage. One of the solutions is to have clearly articulated company goals and an action plan that will help employees to achieve these goals. The second alternative would be for the company to encourage divisions of labor and specialization. The top management should also be assigned duties to ensure they support the junior employees to achieve the vision and mission that they have set (Mohammed &Yassin, 2019). The other solution is to engage employees in decision main and make the expectations clear to them in open forums. This alternative allows them to raise their suggestions and concerns so that both employees and leaders are on the same page. Employee engagement also makes them feel more motivated and energized and are more likely to align themselves with the goals of the company. Other alternatives include holding training sessions, communicating the progress of the company regularly, and sharing the goals and expectations of the company to employees during the selection interviews.

Out of the alternative solutions listed above, some of them are more effective than others. One of the most effective solutions is to engage employees in decision-making forums, where they can openly air their views and concerns, which should be addressed by top management. This strategy encourages employee involvement, job satisfaction, which enhances their attitude towards work and will be more aligned with the goals of the company. Another effective solution will be for the company to conduct frequent training to fix the gap between employee goals and company goals. Employees may have undergone different kinds of training, which may not have been prepared well for typical organizational work. Also, customer tastes and preferences keep changing, and employees need to polish their skills to meet the caning market demands.
