Lower employee engagement will also result in greater employee churn, absenteeism and a general lack of customer care, all critical issues to any business wishing to grow.
So, how can any business successfully engage their employees? By following these 6 steps:
- Understand employee issues and concerns
- Develop strategies to address these concerns
- Build connections between the business and the individual
- Play together – make work life fun; get creative
- Share issues
- Give feedback to all involved
So, how do you turn these steps into actions? Here are two easily implementable activities:
- Create an employee survey
- Collect the metric data. Analyse
- Run a business simulation game
- Turn the analysis into a strategic game
- This will inherently build a connection in a fun, challenging manner
- Issues are shared as teams work together
- All game results can be sliced and diced into views/reports/stats as you need – share this with the teams and get a better understanding of what everyone is trying to achieve together
