Engage and Share
One thing that some successful companies do to increase employee engagement is to give employees more surveys about engagement. The surveys focus on engagement and how employees feel regarding their experience and level of commitment. The results are uploaded online and shared with everyone, allowing people to see their weaknesses and improve on them.
Creating an Experience
Some big companies are focusing on changing the overall experience of being employed by a business. The way this is done is by creating an in-house team dedicated to improving the experience of every employee, making them feel at home. Airbnb, for example, has been focused on ensuring their employees feel safe, secure, and part of a global organization. Diversity is also important. They give employee rewards and help improve talent, as well.
Highlight the Good
Another thing some big companies are doing to improve employee engagement is highlighting good behavior. A business can single out employees who are demonstrating values that are similar to the values of its company. Try to point out these similarities so that other employees know why a particular employee is being recognized. Taking this step should help workers understand what a company is looking for. This should help employees move forward in the company.
It is essential that the ideas brought up by a team are taken seriously. Most of the time, employees are communicating sentiments shared by others on the employee roster. Making sure employees feel like someone is listening to their suggestions or complaints will likely improve engagement.
Some of these suggestions are going to take some time to yield the results many businesses are hoping for. If employers stick with them and are patient, they should see positive results.
