How to Keep Your Team Engaged at Work
Engaging employees is a win-win scenario. Studies show that companies with engaged employees outperform those who have lower employee engagement. The happier and more engaged an person is at work, the more likely they are to stay in their job and deliver great results. When managers work with their team on engagement levels, there is less chance of employee turnover. Employee turnover can cost businesses big bucks.
Here’s how to ensure your team is engaged:
1. Offer regular feedback, not just during formal reviews. This gives the employee clear guidance on what they can improve upon and what they excel at.
2. Have open communications and be transparent with your team so they trust you and feel free and comfortable to ask for what they want. When a person gets what they want and need, they are happier, more motivated and more efficient on the job.
3. Set clear goals and vision so everyone is on the same page. When everyone understands the “why” of what they are doing and the purpose behind it, you are setting your employees up for success in achieving these goals.
