Hiring new people is not always the answer. Sometimes, small tweaks can transform your group into a highly-engaged team.
First, find out what each employee enjoys doing the most. Assign tasks that are based not only on skill but also on personal preference. Studies show that employees are more productive and become highly engaged if they perform the work they love.
Second, include employees in goal setting and allow them to have their say. Don’t expect even the best employees to feel passionate about goals they don’t agree with. Expect indifference instead! On the other hand, having everyone on board has tremendous effects on your team. Each employee becomes more committed to goals they can call their own.
Third, communicate with your employees more often. Find out how you can assist them in their jobs. Praise employees when they think outside the box and perform beyond expectations.
A simple acknowledgment of an employee’s extra effort might be enough to push him/her to become highly engaged. Make it a habit to show appreciation to your employees. Consider following any of the tips above.
Soon, you’ll have a highly engaged top-notch team in your organization!
