Has the team engagement been hit at your workspace? If your answer is a ‘yes’, don’t panic. Every organization, no matter how large or small, encounters the same situation more than once. It usually occurs as a result of a shift in thought, culture, or process.
Scaling up the team engagement levels requires thoughtful leadership and strategies that work brilliantly well. But it is needless to worry when you have these 3 tips by your side to transform things magically for your organization’s well-being.
As we all know a highly engaged workforce will game up the organization’s profitability, efficiency, and retention.
Let’s understand the best 3 tips that can work wonders for any team type of any industry.
1. Regular Coffee chats to check their well-being:
In a formal setting, often an informal chat over the coffee table works wonders for the organization and the teammates. A team leader may be the boss but over a casual setting, one can be approachable and friendly to know the team in a better way. As any assigned task can go wrong, a strategic yet friendly discussion can get it back on track. We get so engrossed in our schedules that we forget to check in with one another, so if we keep an eye on the open forum discussion, our engagement will rise.
2. Reviewing Goals and Tasks:
When there is a clear goal and a purpose behind it, an employee finds it inspiring and will definitely engage to the fullest. In this case, the team's core values and goal settings play an essential part in motivating them. Knowing how to break larger and complex goals into smaller chunks of tasks is the key and it becomes easier to scrutinize and analyze them. Reviewing the goal track and tasks assigned to achieve them will foster a clearer vision, strategic mind-set, and accountable actions.
3. Rewards and Recognition:
Appreciating the achieved goals and completed task works wonders, age is no bar. However, you can combine it with a reward. When it comes to your company and how your employees have contributed to its success, you must acknowledge and reward them, and then sit back and watch the magic unfold in terms of increased productivity and output. Addressing the deserving employee casually and applauding his work initiates a healthy competition. The recognition gained purges any kind of animosity or feelings of envy amongst the employees and drives them towards a single goal of better productivity and achievement.
“The right amount of appreciation at the right time is all that you need.”
Casual, engaging and motivating pep talks, simplifying and breaking up the larger targets into smaller goals, some coffee and cheer and you are all set.
Follow these three simple steps to get the expected team engagement and enjoy the resulting positive vibes in your workplace.
