The more productive your employees, the more money you make.
And what makes them productive?
One strong contributing element is their engagement level.
Increased productivity is not the only benefit of having more engaged employees. The more engaged your employees the easier it is to both attract and retain the best.
And the productivity benefits are not limited to the person’s immediate work area. They could have superb ideas for improving the organisation in general.
So – what makes them more engaged?
Here are some ways in which you can increase their engagement levels:
- Remove the obstacles preventing them from getting things done.
- Put them in roles that play to their unique strengths.
- Give them clear objectives.
- Provide them with the tools they need.
- Freely give them autonomy on how best to reach those objectives.
Note also that I’m talking about engagement rather than satisfaction. Employee satisfaction is just that – an employee having their needs met in terms of their jobs and work environment.
But satisfied employees might not necessarily be engaged – and this is because engagement means more. It’s about commitment, passion, and what employees do with their discretionary effort.
Ordinary “satisfaction” isn’t always a good thing. For example, it can serve to retain unmotivated deadwood. In contrast, it’s always good for you to have engaged employees. It is important for you to be mindful of the impact on your organisation of your employees’ commitment levels and the extent to which they’re emotionally invested in your organisation’s welfare.
I want to work with you to improve your employees’ engagement levels.
We will do this through first using research techniques (online surveys, questionnaires, workshops, etc.) to determine what you need to do to improve engagement.
That research work will give you the specific actions you need to take.
Then it’s down to implementation to make things happen!
