Employees are the driving force for any SME or a multi-national conglomerate. Hence, it is imperative for organizations to have a workforce which is active, motivated and driven to ensure they meet their targets. Overtime, all businesses face the issues of their staff getting disinterested with their job, and it is necessary for organizations to keep their workforce engaged to keep their morale up. Here is where employee engagement comes to the picture.

How to Improve Employee Engagement?

An employee will be engaged with the company if they feel valued, secure, financially well-off, and happy. An organization can apply one or many of the possible engagement strategies to ensure their staff are happy. After all, this has a direct effect on their productivity, which every organization understands the importance of a productive workforce. To improve engagement, organizations need to ask the employees themselves as to what they need.
Something as simple as being heard and provided solutions to their problems can go a long way in ensuring a happy and motivated workforce. There are other options too such as conducting events, outings, volunteering activities and other related team building exercises. Not all the people working with the company are the same; organizations need to understand which solution suits the best to the majority of the workforce and execute that.

Benefits of Employee Engagement

A disengaged workforce is a liability to an organization, and no organization wants that. Hence, it is imperative to keep them engaged and happy for them to be an asset to the company. Engagement activities ensure that the staff feels valued and they stay happy and motivated. This, in turn, impacts their performance positively, resulting in higher productivity which has a cascading effect on the organization’s performance in the market.

Employee Engagement Activities

There are many activities which a company can organize to keep their workforce engaged. The following are some activities:

  • Annual awards
  • Team picnics
  • Office parties
  • Monetary bonuses
  • Volunteer programs
  • Marathons/sports activities
  • Hackathons
  • Paper presentations
  • Debates/talent showcasing competitions

There are many other options than an organization can choose from apart from the aforementioned activity ideas. Keeping employees engaged in some extracurricular activities as well as work-related activities through gamification will ensure the highest morale of all the people working for the company. Today in the fast-paced work environment, it is necessary to understand the importance of productivity and how employee engagement can help boost it.
