How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement

How the Best Places to Work are Nailing Employee Engagement | New Leadership | Scoop.it

So what engages employees? The drivers differ region to region and person to person, but employee engagement is largely about social connections happening in organizations and aligning work experiences with employees’ cultural needs.

 

What works varies by industry, location, company size, and how much money and resources the organization has to invest into developing its culture, and its value and philosophy around employee engagement.

 

But there are factors that all highly engaged workplaces have in common.

 

How do the best places to work succeed at employee engagement?

Dan Biles's curator insight, February 25, 8:36 AM

The leader in a business is responsible for everything within his or her organisation – for the development of the proposition; for the success and wellbeing of the staff; for every challenge, trial and tribulation. In order to keep up the respect and motivation of your staff, it’s important to maintain a mindset of responsibility and care for your team at all times.

Michael Wilcox's curator insight, March 2, 9:29 PM

The value and service of client base is paramount to business success yet too often considered as a cost centre rather than the profit centre it can be. Social media increases the reach of both good and bad customer services and experience - in the long run, it pays to take care of current clients.

We Is Bigger Than You

We Is Bigger Than You | New Leadership | Scoop.it
You may have witnessed it yourself: living clouds created by thousands of starlings flying together, commonly referred to as ‘murmuration’. The way in which all the birds suddenly change direction or speed as if they were a single entity still remains one of nature’s secrets, with most scientists assuming starlings undertake this unique collective motion in order to reduce predation risk. In a similar way, great organizations are more than just the sum of great individuals: organizational strength, progress and resilience are determined by the extent to which individual employees ‘fly together’ as if they were a single entity working towards a common goal.
