...that emotionally connected and engaged employees are the most loyal and productive.
In fact, improving employee engagement directly impacts your bottom line. Employees who are committed to success, emotionally attached, and socially involved with a company are more productive at work, take less sick days and are less likely to leave...they are loyal to their employer. We all want to increase the loyalty factor, so following are a few ideas to make that happen. (source: Allegiance, Inc
1. Use an employee satisfaction survey to measure employee engagement
2. Based on employee responses, align what YOU think employees value with what THEY really value
3. Help employees see the big picture and how they fit into it
4. Instead of cutting training budgets, offer more to employees to increase job confidence and facilitate career advancement
5. Offer a mentoring program that utilizes a pool of seasoned employees to assist with skill growth throughout your organization and foster a sense of community
6. Offer team building activities to promote trust and acceptance
7. Be transparent about company health...don't be afraid to tell the truth
8. Retrain or get rid of bad managers as they directly impact employee morale and pollute many layers of an organization
9. Recognize employee contributions and accomplishments
Implementing even half of these will have a dramatic effect on your employee's willingness to show up, work hard and leave the beach ball and sunscreen at home!
