Employee Engagement by an organization is a commitment to creating an enabling environment for employees to remain passionate and involved in carrying out their jobs effectively and efficiently to increase their productivity.
By engaging your employees in meaningful activities, you can help to increase productivity and performance that ultimately affects the overall growth of your company.
Employees who have what they need to succeed in their career and are satisfied with their personal growth and receive a reward for their contribution, are unlikely to look for jobs elsewhere.
This is a good time to ask, what do employees want?
Employees have needs that transcend just salaries. A fat monthly cheque is great but if that’s all your employees work for then your company is in trouble. Employees want to know that they are in a work environment that allows them to build themselves professionally as well as personally. If you want to attract top talents and retain them, you need to pay attention to their professional and personal lives.
From creating engaging activities, a better work environment, offering flexible working hours, flexible schedules, these can help your employees maintain a more positive work-life balance and remain productive at work.
Sometimes, it’s hard to get this going in an organization especially when you need to handle customers, pay bills, build more products but you need to know how important your employees’ productivity can affect the quality of work they deliver. When you put the right things in place, you can trust them to perform at their best.
Sharing the big pictures with your employees would let them know they are working towards something bigger. Everyone wants to work with purpose, it helps for better connection to executing tasks and putting in their best because they, just like you are looking forward to the result.
What’s your company’s vision and values? Have you shared it with them, do they find themselves in it?
Employees want to be a part of something meaningful and this you have to communicate to them.
