Creating an Engaged Workforce
As cliche as it sounds people really do drive the success of business. Working on your people strategy will enable you to understand your business drivers for:
We've been working with a number of businesses to understand how engaged their people are and how to implement actions that lead to improved engagement. Here are some common activity that drives engagement.
Create a Partnership - Treat each employee as a valuable member of your team, and give them the autonomy to make decisions and do their work as they see fit, so long as they meet their performance standards.
Involve Your Employees - Involve employees more deeply in your business especially in stetting goals, planning and building activity.
Provide Feedback on Performance - Seems simple, however this is one of the most overlooked areas in alot of businesses.
Regularly set aside time to tell your people what they are doing right and point out any areas for improvement.
Keep Promises - Again it seems simple; but sometimes we committ to things with all the right intent and then are unable to follow-through. Never make a promise you can’t keep. If you aren’t certain that you will be able to follow through on a promise, then don’t make it.
Create a Productive Work Environment - It's easy to be busy at work (and gneuinley busy too), however are you and your team productive?
TEAM is important - Regularly set time aside for meeings (well planned and productive), team-building exercises and catch-ups, and make them fun so your employees actually look forward to participating and contirbuting.
Recognise and Thank Them - There really is nothing a thank-you for a job well done. Catching people doing the right things and recognising them is extremely important in instilling the positive, successful culture that drives employee engagement.
