What Is the JPEA?
Better choices. Renewed hope. Greater fulfillment.
According to a Gallup Poll, more than 70 percent of American workers do not feel engaged at work. These individuals are more likely to be unhappy and less likely to be motivated and committed. Even worse is the fact that many students are choosing areas of study and spending thousands of dollars preparing for careers without understanding what it will take for them to become fully engaged at work after they finish their studies. In most cases, the missing link is good information about the sources of energy drain and gain in work situations.
The Job-Person-Environment Assessment™ is a tool that provides the information on which individuals can base their choices about managing their energy at work. The JPEATM has demonstrated impressive reliability for over 25 years. Using an in-depth online statement and response system, individuals receive results in a clear, business-oriented and non-judgmental language that reveals:
- The "fit" between them and their job;
- The "support" their organization's environment provides;
- The sources of their energy drain and/or gain at work;
- Options they can consider for maximizing their energy; and
- The potential impact of their work style preferences on relationships.
JPEATM can be grouped and/or aggregated and analyzed to identify central tendencies or trends among participants. These results also can be used to focus and facilitate discussions about organizational situations. Accurate diagnosis can be seen as a necessary first step in an effective intervention of any type. Because the JPEATM is a diagnostic tool, the results and discussions about their implications help answer the questions:
- What is happening in this situation now;
- Why is it happening; and
- What should we consider doing about it?
Ultimately, organizational excellence depends on employees being energized, excited, and engaged, which encourages their commitment. When employees are being drained, and their primary aim is surviving work, all you can count on is their compliance. When you know what stands in the way of the excellence you seek and/or what is likely to be energizing to employees, you can make better choices. The JPEATM results can be used to inform your choices. It's that simple.
