So what if there is employee engagement in an organization?
If you are a business owner, director of a department, or supervisor, you know that it can make all the difference even if you have never put a term to it. When people are all in with an organization, they show up to work, they show up on time, they get their work done, they participate in meetings and are a part of the flow of the workplace.
Engaged Employees = Productive Employees
According to @gallup’s most recent study, 32% of full- and part-time employees working for organizations are now engaged, while 17% are actively disengaged. Actively disengaged means higher absenteeism, less being completed at work, and generally just coasting by. Odds are they are looking for another job while at their current job.
3 Ways You Can Increase Employee Engagement:
- Learn how each person in your team functions…what are they good at? What do they hate doing? Have a conversation with them.
- Delegate. After you learn more about how they tick, find ways to utilize their skills and strengths.
- Create feedback loops that help support and train your team members.
People typically don’t do their job for one of two reasons, they don’t want to or they don’t know how. Eliminate the second one by being the support they need you to be as their direct supervisor.
