Employee engagement is critical to running a successful organization, team, club, or unit. When employees are engaged, they will provide discretionary effort, increase morale, increase productivity, and ultimately profitability!
One good tip to engage your people is to help them develop. Allow them to attend career and professional development conferences and training sessions that get them out of the office, but still engaged with work. Company and team outings also foster team unity and contribute to a greater work-life balance."
This shows appreciation to the individual or team and feeds their brains to help them innovate, problem solve, and improve communications.
As a leader, this is your responsibility - to create the right kind of environment!
If you work somewhere or for a team that has a toxic environment - find a way to change it or get out. You deserve better.
