Improve Employee Engagement
The more connected your employees feel, the easier it is for them to support the organization's objectives.
As the work environment becomes more mobile and dispersed, it's challenging to keep employees fully engaged. This engagement is both social and logistic: Employees need trusted connections with executives, managers, and peers, as well as access to the tools and information necessary to do their jobs, collaborate with others, and develop their skills.
Collaboration is fundamental to high levels of employee engagement. Key findings outlined in a study from BlessingWhite identify several benefits, including the following:
- Employees view career development, training, and opportunities to apply their talents as top factors in job satisfaction.
- Trust in executives appears to have more than twice the impact on engagement that trust in immediate managers does.
- Engaged employees stay for what they give to the organization, whereas the disengaged stay for what they get from the organization.
- Executives have to demonstrate consistency in words and actions, communicate often in depth, and align business practices and behaviors throughout the organization.
