Employee Engagement is not only about Holi, Diwali or Rangoli. 🎉🎈🎇
It typically means engaging, aligning them to Organisation’s Goal, Vision, Mission, Policies etc.
It’s Actually About Improving the Employee Experience 😇
It’s very widely said that “Engaged Employees are Productive Employees” 👨🏻💼👩🏻💼🤩🤝
What is more important is to understand Why and How can we actually Engage the minds of your Stakeholders towards your NEW NORMAL.
At what all Stages you can Engage your Employees??
- Since Selection: Once you select your right fit, your new entrant, updating them about their role, required skills to outperform. Also help them to know more about their new team and New BOSS 🦸♂️🦸♀️ Also do not forget to extend your supportive hand for his / her smooth transition from previous to your organisation. Ensure to make them feel your supported.
- After Joining: Flash Mob, Welcome Letter, Team Lunch and what all do you to make your new Entrant feel comfortable at his/her new workplace. While that is very important, just do one more thing- communicate very clearly about all what is expected and what can help them grow here in this organisation. This is the most correct time to let them know the Benchmarks of your organisation.
- Anytime During Employment Tenure: During Festivals or any such occassion we do celebrate and engage our people. Can we just customise such activities to link it to the Goals and policies ? Lets make it more effective. Creating Situational Leaders and more bonded team can be one of your objectives.
Tip: You can do value roll outs while planning your next activity.
- After Exit: Ex-Employees / Alumni are the most important asset you can nuture as they are your Brand Ambassadors and can increase the trust and Brand Value of your organisation. How can you engage them ? By just doing some very simple gesture like update them of the project that they were a part of and recognising their efforts in it. Just by staying connected by letting them know your organisations and his / her Ex-Team’s update (to whatever extent possible) and most important by showing some genuine concern about how are they doing in their Personal and Professional Life. And if possible arranging an Alumni (Ex-Employee) meets.
Happy Learning, Happy Engaging…
