Creating Sustainable Employee EngagementJune 1, 2021
Categorised in: Employee Engagement
Employee Engagement is something that almost every business strives to achieve. After all, many believe that it’s essential for recruiting the best talent as well as for Retaining Staff. But, unless efforts to promote engagement see sustained, tangible improvements for employees themselves, these attempts can sometimes be in vain. So how do you maintain motivation for your workforce?
The right attitude
Arguably the most important thing for companies and managers to grasp when it comes to employee engagement is having the right attitude. Indeed, many businesses are inefficient as they take the easy route and blame employees for a lack of interest in their work. But it’s rarely their fault for being disengaged, and pinning it on your staff achieves nothing.
So, managers in particular need to show engagement but also understanding when it comes to inspiring their workforce. If managers show the right attitude to their work, and view the motivation of their staff as a main objective of their job, then getting sustainable results from employees becomes much easier.
The right culture
This goes far beyond the outlook of managers or those running a business, as the right culture for promoting employee engagement can involve your entire workforce. This is especially important in the work from home era, as you need to try and Minimise Stress for Employees whilst also promoting a social side to your company in order to maintain staff interest.
In addition, it’s worth remembering that, according to Gallup, a majority of workers say they are disengaged with work. So, unless you already have an Efficient Employee Benefits System in place, creating a positive culture that will motivate your employees is a long-term project.
Employee Engagement needs mobility and empowerment
If you’re going to achieve sustainable employee engagement, then your staff are going to need to feel that they have the tools to progress and achieve their goals with your company. This could be in the form of Employee Training Programs, or in clear job progression through your business.
The essential part, however, is that your staff need to feel motivated by what you can offer, and that they have the resources to turn that positivity into results.
Finally, as employee engagement is highly subjective, it’s very easy to waste money as a business when trying to motivate staff. This is why sustainable engagement is such an important concept, because if you’re able to continuously maintain employee interest then you know you’re investing well.
