At the core of it, employee engagement is what keeps an organization alive. When you take time to invest in the people that make up your team, you’ll see an increase in productivity, engagement, and company culture.
It’s apparent that employee engagement is essential for every workplace. Here are some opportunities to enhance your company culture and celebrate the team members who make your company successful.
Starting from the get-go, new hires and teammates should feel the excitement of joining an organization. Try this:
Your teammates are much more than their accomplishments at work. Take every opportunity to celebrate your people inside and outside of work. For example:
Giving public kudos will not only make your teammates feel valued but bring others together to celebrate the big and small moments in the office.
Each of your teammates carries unique strengths that can help you expand your skillset. Whether you’re asking for personal or career advice, taking that first step to setup up those meetings.
When we’re allowed to express our individuality at work, it’s almost natural that we feel more engaged at work. Celebrating everyone’s identity and uniqueness can your team feel appreciated in their role. Try this:
You’re not a machine and neither is your team. All work and no play will likely lead to burnout. And to get the most bountiful results with happy teammates requires a culture that encourages breaks. Try this:
Socializing outside of work is a must when it comes to getting people to engage in their work. Team-building can lead to stronger working relationships, effective communication, and increased job satisfaction. Try this:
The sad part of work is sometimes your close peers move onto new endeavors, so take the time to celebrate them and their accomplishments.
Your peers have their own lives outside of work. Whether it’s volunteering or personal setbacks encourage your team to take days off for themselves.
Teams need to feel safe when giving or receiving feedback. They need to know that if they give feedback they won’t face negative repercussions. This starts with building trusting relationships.
Create moments throughout the week to see how your teammates are doing. Everyone is on their path and sometimes a small check-in can make a big difference in their day.
