Improving employee engagement is key if you’re going to run a successful business with a happy and hardworking team. It isn’t always about the people you hire, but the way you treat the people you hire that determines how engaged they are in the work. Below, you’ll find 4 quick ways to improve employee engagement:
Give Theme Praise
Make sure you give your team praise when they have worked hard. Do this as a group and individually when the time is right. Do this verbally, and find other ways to do it if possible. For example, you could place something on a noticeboard, come up with a group reward, or even name an employee of the month. Finding different ways to dish out praise so that everybody feels happy and like their work matters will make all the difference.
Most people want to work flexibly these days, so make sure you offer this option. It could mean allowing employees to work from home every so often, allowing them to come in earlier and finish earlier, or to take a day off here and there when they really need one, making it up where they can.
Promote Regular Breaks
Regular breaks allow employees to stay focused and engaged with the work. Although it may seem counter productive, spending too long working does not actually mean getting more done.
Ask For Feedback
Asking for feedback will give you a good idea of what you can do to improve engagement now – you could use an anonymous survey, for example. The infographic below could also help you to see where you need to improve.
