5 Secrets To Better Employee Engagement

5 Secrets To Better Employee Engagement | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Employee engagement--chances are you’ve heard of it before. With today’s war for talent and an entire new generation of digital natives moving into the workplace, employee engagement is a serious concern on the corporate agenda of every major company. So then why does a recent Gallup poll find that only 13% of employees are engaged at work?

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 3, 1:14 AM


A lot has been written in recent times on the subject of employee engagement, and business owners generally don't have the time to digest all the nuances embedded in the copious quantity of information available, so the essence of what is important is of more use to the average business owner.


Simply distilling  the information available relating to improving employee engagement levels, does not provide any form of guidance as to what to prioritise to make an earlier difference, therefore a different approach is needed.


This excellent article by a practicing global director of employee engagement, suggests that by connecting the brand and employees a business owner can make meaningful progress towards improving employee engagement levels, and it outlines the five areas of focus that are key steps to making this happen sooner rather than later.

How Are You Choosing to Show Up? - General Leadership

How Are You Choosing to Show Up? - General Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

“Every leader today starts somewhere. No one is born knowing everything they need to know in order to make a positive impact. Rather, leading is primarily about who you are, inside and out. It’s about doing what you can, when you can, where you can to add a little magic to the moment by making the most of opportunities to guide, inspire, and be helpful in a way that willfully does for others what you would like others to do for you—one opportunity to set an example worth emulating at a time.”

The Best Leaders Make Unforgettable First Impressions

The Best Leaders Make Unforgettable First Impressions | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Leaders that try too hard to win people over are the ones that end up losing the respect of their employees – especially when it’s not genuine.    The most memorable leadersknow how to naturally make a good first impression. They are mindful of what most employees do and don’t expect of them and want to create for them a safe environment that enables engagement.   Leadership success is all about people and when leaders forget this fact, they are headed down a path of self-destruction.

I have always advocated the companies role in generational diversity.  It seems that we tend to focus on what guru's are talking about most and relegate the remainder to pull up the rear.  Every generation has a place at the table.  I don't believe in a kid's table nor separating out the older generations.  Everyone should be contributing to the whole.

10 Things Great Leaders Say Every Week

10 Things Great Leaders Say Every Week | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
If you want to lead a team toward a goal, you need to make sure they know how their daily work connects to the overall objectives. Here's how to make that happen, with one meeting every week.

Via Kudos, Robin Brothers

Kudos's curator insight, April 4, 1:48 PM

Some great advice. Simple rules to follow. I would print this out and hang it on your wall and bring it out before every group meeting to refresh what you need to cover.

 

That brings up another key point - when was the last time you had a team meeting. We all think we have meetings all the time but the truth is we do not have as many as we think we do or should. 

 

Weekly, Bi-weekly, Monthly - what is the right frequency? Weekly is a good place to start but maybe you switch up the main purpose of the team meetings and make them mandatory.

 

We do monthly Team Talks - that allows everyone to communicate what is happening in their group / department and ask questions. Item #8 - Check.

 

We also do Lunch and Learns - that allows one person or a group /department to show off what they are thinking about or working on. Goo way to get the innovation ideas flowing - One more for #8 - double check.

 

Totally agree with doing a great job with on boarding - make a persons first day a great day. This is is a whole blog post on it's own. I also like sending good people off with some fanfare and a thank you. They are ambassadors for your company  thank you, good luck and farewell event to highlighting in a bigger meeting is a very good idea. #9 - Check, check.

 

The rest of the items - are leadership touch points to that should be communicated as often as possible - such as the events listed above. In fact, we believe that these communication should be free flowing and  a product like Kudos is designed  to help companies do that with a big dose of #7. Show your appreciation often and say thanks to people every week.  

 

I call it leading out loud and doing it in structured ways will make people feel more connected to the company and one another. Transparency and honesty is a good thing - Your team  can handle the truth so keep them in the loop :)

 

If you ever wondered what those companies you admire so much do - that is pretty well it.  

 

Cheers,

 

T

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 3, 8:45 PM

Research has been available for many years that monetary incentives are not (except in limited circumstances) the most important motivating factor for people.  So why do most organisations continue to use bonuses etc as there main way to motivate their people?  

John Michel's curator insight, April 18, 2:05 AM

Rather than structuring our workdays (and our employees' workdays) around rewards, we should instead structure them around continual, meaningful progress. 

Mike Masin's comment, April 18, 6:26 AM
Things that are harder to quantify like growing and being challenged are our long-term motivators. So we know ourselves better than anybody else.

I agree on this point. Collaboration is effective only if goals are evident: What problem are we trying to solve together? What can we do to solve this collectively?  Of course, there needs to be a time-frame: By when do we have to get this done? What’s at stake if we don’t complete it in time?

Great scoop here via @wildresiliency.  


Totally agree with the following:


Vision is an essential element to making organizations work in meaningful ways but the work needs to be reinforced through the right cultural aspects.


The culture and vision blend:


  • Vision activates action but needs to be reinforced with the culture to incite the right behaviors.
  • Culture empowers people to create, solve, and grow all the while enabling the organization to achieve, build, and realize the vision of what is possible for customers and stakeholders.
  • Vision and culture need to be wrapped together in order to unbind the ability within each team member.
