Do employees feel that they are a part of 'family'?

CEans,

I bet those of you who have spent some time in the corporate world, have come across the typical words from the HR & Senior Management Folks : "We are a part of a family!"

During a coffee-room discussion (I've had plenty of them!) I came to know that employees do not really feel being a part of the big family of the company. I was even bit shocked to see that 99% ( 100% would look bad!) work only for ONE big reason : money!

But those are my observations. What do you have to say?

Hi,

I agree with you. However, this is one thing towards which HR of a company should focus to make it successful. Extremely successful companies like Micosoft, cutting company napster actually showed this in their initial years, that if employee feels being part of organization then battle is half won already.

I think, it differs on organization-to-organization and also person-to-person ! Few organizations really care for their employees. Also some people have their own nature of mingling or not mingling in people.

Not too much anymore, although was it really actually present? A generation or two ago employees worked for a company most of their career. Now the average is a few years.
