Creating a Dignity-Based Communication Culture
Business leaders are aware of the benefits of employee engagement - it's mandatory in this highly-competitive world of business. Dignify is the HOW system for integrating engagement through a dignity-based communication platform. For the first time, CEOs and leaders can receive analytic information surrounding communication.
Leaders learn how to coach their direct reports through dignified conversations, understanding the WHY, WHAT and HOW of each employee:
- Why they behave the way they do.
- What motivates them.
- How to effectively communicate with them.
“... just what this team needed to ‘jump-start’ the team’s direction. Team members rated the program as ‘fantastic’ and ‘spot-on’ ... the most effective organizational communication tool I have experienced.”
Brett @ Kraft Foods
“The dignify process helps people to understand each other better, with the positive result of less friction and fewer times where there is discord in the family.”
Gregg @ Brown County United Way
Dignify “is definitely playing a role in our success, and we plan to use it in an even greater capacity in the future.”
Royal Dough Baker @ Dough Rollers
Reduce Employee Turnover
Dignify technology has helped companies significantly reduce turnover. When executed properly, dignity works every single time. It's the universal language of trust, goodwill and cooperation. It's a known fact that people quit bosses, not companies. Through its Check-In system, dignify makes sure that conversations around dignity are commonplace between leaders and subordinates and between peers.
Misunderstandings are quickly squashed and confusion turns to understanding. It's a system company supervisors and managers point employees to when disagreements arise. Dignify shows people how to get over unnecessary emotional drama that can occur through misinterpreted behavior. As a result, managers rarely need to help solve employee disputes - they learn to do it on their own.
“Before dignify, we lost one quick-lube employee per month, leaving to go somewhere else. I am proud to say that, as I sit here today, we have gone over a year with zero turnover. No more misunderstanding.”
Tim @ Dahl Automotive
“I would go on record stating our turnover has significantly decreased from approximately 350% to 125%. Our team member performance has significantly increased.”
Tim @ Great American Cookies
Using dignify, our company of 900, including many skilled scientists, “has helped lower our turnover significantly over three years, saving our company with the high costs of turnover.”
Rick @ DPT Laboratories, Ltd.
Maximize Employee Placement
How would you like to be 90% certain you are placing an employee in the right seat? It's possible with dignify. You will see how powerful the system is with your FREE introductory session.

Dignify helps significantly with this process of selection and employee acceptance. It's a game-changer!
Hiring has never been easier. When candidates complete their survey, you will know in just a few minutes if their dignity motivations match the job requirements. For example, if you need customer service representatives, you will want candidates who naturally enjoy people. Reversely, if you are looking for a person to be in an office crunching numbers all day, task and creative Dignity Traits would be ideal! It's a true science for assuring the right person for the right job!
“Our company uses our vast employment base and dignify to fill roles. Finding the right person for the right role is now far less complicated when you know what drives them! We can place new hires correctly in 6-8 minutes versus 6-8 months!”
Joanna @ Monterey Mushrooms
“I was able to use my Snapshot to explain who I am, what you can expect from me and my likes and dislikes. I backed up my statements with my professional portfolio. It was a very successful piece of the interview and really set me apart from other candidates.”
Katie @ Schneider National
“I used to run the machine that made the pizza crust. I ran every position and was good at it. Then I was promoted to supervisor and struggled being a leader. Now, with dignify, I know how to run the nine human machines that run the machine!”
Manuel @ AK Crust
“...a great way to see how a new team member will work... using a very user-friendly, online service. I would highly recommend using this company!”
Paula @ Ultimate Air
How dignify Works
Dignify begins with operational leaders participating in a series of Coaching Modules designed to fully implement dignify into the organization within a few months. They become experts in understanding not only the system, but properly interpreting the dignify Snapshot which is created through a short survey process. It's not a personality test and there is no pass or fail. Employees are presented the 56 known Dignity Traits. These are emotional triggers, not personality types. Traits like: Good on Stage, Organized, Sincere at Heart, Good Listener and Independent, to name a few. The survey takes less than fifteen minutes to complete, on average, and produces a dignify Snapshot. The data gained from the survey is loaded into an intuitive engine which makes the information actionable and sustainable. Features are listed below.
The dignify Snapshot
Understanding the dignify Snapshot takes just a little training. Employees gain access to what's good and positive about them, creating a feeling of being dignified. They learn how their dignity makes them unique. Text and video explanations are provided for self-learning. Certainly everyone has their shortcomings, but that is reserved for their leader to coach. The responsibility of the system is to leave the employee feeling great about themselves.
Employees also gain access to dignify Snapshots of colleagues, so they can get to know them better, creating an awareness that was never available before. Dignify's survey results are high level and positive, not a deep psychological assessment, therefore revealing the rules for communicating effectively for each unique person.
For leaders who work with a certified dignify Coach, the Snapshot reveals the WHY, WHAT and HOW of every person:
- Why they behave the way they do.
- What motivates them.
- How to effectively communicate with them.
Employees engage in regular Check-Ins
We believe that managers must meet one-on-one with employees to properly mentor, guide and instruct them. If your organization does not share this belief or is not open to it, then dignify is not for you. The Check-In is the main activity that increases retention by reducing tension between people. The Check-In is a 20-minute conversation between two people, which is guided intuitively by the dignify system. The conversation begins with Dignity (discussing the likes and dislikes of communication) and ends with Operational Improvements, which allows for customization for the company administrators.
For the first time, managers, who have little to no Soft Skills, will be guided in how to better communicate with those they lead. Misunderstandings quickly dissolve and understanding is created. Emotional needs are discussed in a black and white, logical way by triggering the brain's logic centers. Top leaders receive reports on the activity and quality of these interactions. Now, when managers say they are meeting with their direct reports, you have a tangible record of it.
You cannot improve what you cannot track. Dignify tracks activity and provides quality reports. You can compare individual, department or location performance in a simple-to-view report. When introducing any program, there needs to be accountability built in. The key is in providing employees immediate gratification for participating. Dignify is Gamified! This simply means employees who engage in the system will be immediately recognized and rewarded. They earn points, which lead to trophies for completing various activities. This is a proven practice for gaining engagement. Dignify also creates a Top 5 Performers list, creating healthy competition for the managers who participate.
Have you ever had something you needed to share with another person that could be perceived as negative? Or, have you ever sent email requests to co-workers and they don't reply? You and everyone else in business! Dignify's messaging tool was built on two familiar adages, "It's not what you said, it's how you said it," and "Now you're speaking my language!"
Remember that original survey the employee completed in the beginning? That data is repurposed and delivered in a simple feature that allows you to be aware of the words that dignify and create understanding within a person. Now you literally can speak their language by saying what you want to say, but using their words to say it. Leaders have reported an 80% faster response rate when using the messaging tool with people who ordinarily take a long time to respond.
No more emotional energy needs to be spent wondering how you're going to deliver information to a person. Now you know and can effectively communicate with anyone in your account using dignify!
