Step Ahead of Employee Engagement

by Richa Sharma on August 31, 2017

People matter – Having a happy, motivated and enthused workforce is the greatest achievement for any organization. It is hence no wonder that employee engagement is generating such a huge buzz in academic, research and corporate circles these days.

Organizations can accrue massive benefits through an engaged bunch of workers and productivity levels can soar sky high. However, just engaging employees is not enough! There is the urgent need to go beyond engagement and harness the true potential of your talent pool by inspiring them to connect to their workplace unconditionally. You can be the harbinger of a positive work revolution by truly inspiring your employees.

Research conducted by Bain & Company has proved that while satisfied and engaged employees are great performers, it is the inspired set of workers who bring about a transformational sea of change to organizational end results.

Inspired employees are 125% more productive than satisfied employees and 56% more productive than engaged employees. They are also more than twice as productive as satisfied ones, meaning it would take two and a quarter satisfied employees to generate the same output as one inspired employee.

People who are driven by the work they do, feel stimulated to perform to the best of their ability and focus on bringing about progressive change for the betterment of the company.

So, what can be done to keep the fire burning and making sure your employees are inspired? Let’s have a look at a few quick pointers:

Clearly define the shared ideals of the organization, the visualization of leadership and expected behaviors for employees. Hire people who will blend into your organizational culture, and who desire to be a part of your success story. Remember that your mission, vision, and values are the baton for your company and will go a long way in inspiring employees to stay passionately employed.

2. Extraordinary Leadership – Employees need a figurehead to look up to and derive inspiration from. Have a set of senior leadership that motivates everyone down the ladder to push themselves to go beyond what is expected of them in order to achieve organizational goals. Make sure employees connect and form a healthy relationship with the people they work for. The top brass should make a strong impact through their words, actions, and principles. They need to strike the right balance between accomplishing corporate goals and concern for employee well-being. Having a personal connection with senior leadership will greatly keep employees bonded to their work and happy at the workplace.

3. Continuous Learning – Learning makes people push the boundaries of their comfort zone and embrace new thought processes, ideologies and skill sets. It stirs the mind, shakes up old beliefs and satisfies the quench for relevant knowledge. Organizations need to embrace a culture of lifelong learning and development.

By providing diverse training and development initiatives to a constantly evolving workforce, employers enable them to successfully navigate the challenges of their job role in pursuit of personal, team or organizational goals. Encourage employees to take ownership of their jobs and to strive for personal excellence. Companies that adopt the outlook that they are a “learning organization” can have a powerful impact on both employee happiness and their business’ bottom line in multiple ways.

 So, it’s time to time to get involved, connected and inspire employees to transcend beyond barriers to contribute to organizational success.
