Ways to Improve Employee Engagement


Posted by Insightlink on 01/15/14

Disengaged employees are a problem that almost every business experiences at one time or another. When an employee is disengaged, this means that he is not happy or enthusiastic about his job. This is harmful because unhappy employees tend to not have the motivation or the desire to have the best performance possible. Some ways to improve engagement are outlined below.

  1. Use a good employee engagement survey that asks questions in which the results are actionable. All data collected must be specific and relevant to increasing engagement.
  2. Set the tone from the top by choosing the right managers. Company success is based off the employees’ achievements. This means that the managers must be as engaged as employees are expected to be.
  3. Hold managers responsible for the engagement of the employees under them. The basis for this is studies have found that managers are directly responsible for their employees’ engagement levels.
  4. Engagement goals should be realistic. Realistic goals are measureable and have the ability to be met. They are also more meaningful to employees. These goals should be recorded in everyday terms and broken down to simple ideas. This helps to bridge any gaps in communication. 

Engaging employees starts at the management level and ends at the employee level. When your business considers the changes needed to engage all or most of their employees, the changes must be on all levels of your organization. Studies have proven that engaged employees have higher customer satisfaction and lower absenteeism than non-engaged and fully disengaged employees.
