Employee Engagement


The best methodologies and working tools will get you nowhere if your employees are not working efficiently and effectively.

Here is a mini-plan to increase employee engagement within your organization.

 
#1. Hurdle one is to make sure none of the employees hate their jobs. If you get to step #7 with an employee and they are not on board, let both sides move on. It’s critical to have everyone in the boat, rowing in the same direction.

#2. Explain the big picture (why we are all here).

#3. Next, give the employees proper tools to do the work you are asking them to do and train them in the use of these tools.

#4. Show them what’s in it for them to use these tools effectively (e.g. less difficulty performing the work with the tools than not working with the tools, reduced stress).

#5. Give them some responsibility to make decisions.

#6. Mentor employees along a career path tailored to their interests, desires and capabilities.

#7. Get each employee to sign off on their engagement plan.

#8. Do a review every 6 months.

#9. Do daily/weekly walkabouts
