Some find dating exciting. Others believe it’s nerve-racking. But at some point, virtually all people put themselves out there. Most are hoping for a long-term relationship. After all, a genuine connection that culminates in marriage is worth a lot. The initial thrill might fade over time, but think about the energy you put into a first date — it takes a lot of time and effort to get to know each other and go through ups and downs together. If you keep going on first dates for the rest of your life, you’ll be exhausted. And you’ll get little in return. Only a long-term relationship will allow you to grow together. Right?
But doesn’t this apply to all types of relationships?
Speed dating versus long-term commitments
Let’s have a look at employee engagement. At your company, you want to get the most out of human capital. And remember, it’s a two-way street: the employee aims to maximize their potential. If HR keeps ‘speed dating,’ you won’t be able to balance and grow together. Neither your organization nor your employees will develop and thrive. You need the business equivalent of a marriage to make things work.
The same goes for solutions you implement to optimize processes. Some suppliers sell standardized software without providing any additional services. During a sales meeting, they show their best selves and promise you the moon. But after you’ve purchased the product, they’ll leave you to your own devices. It’s the business version of a first date that leads to nothing. What you need is a long-term solution from a software supplier that provides you with guidance and advice — a partner that commits to getting to know your company, working with you, and sharing gains and pains, so you’ll achieve the best results together.
