How to increase productivity through engagement
What you'll learn:
Finding and hiring the right employee for a job can be a challenge, but your work doesn’t stop once you have them on your team. Managers need to work with their employees and build trusting relationships to keep them engaged. In this free course learn the definition of employee engagement, why it matters, and how you can play a part in all this.
Improving two-way communication
Let’s say you run an employee engagement survey and one of the results is:
What can I do as a manager?
- Use 1:1s to not only give but ask for feedback from your employee
- Understand the needs of your employees and discuss how you can help
- Set clear expectations and time to review performance
- Work on being self-aware
It sounds like there might be a concern with open communication with a lower score like this. Employees not only want their voices to be heard but also want clear expectations around the work they are being assigned. When an employee feels that they can provide their opinions and that they matter, they will be more likely to contribute or go the extra mile.
