Increased Employee Engagement
03/07/2012 / 12:56 pm    #1

The world's top companies recognize that employee engagement is a force that drives performance outcomes, where it is more than a human resources initiative; it is a strategic foundation for the way they do business.

How do you in your company encourage employee engagement across various functions? What tools do you have in place to get your employees connecting? What are the key factors that determine the effectiveness of the tools?

Research by Gallup and others shows that engaged employees are more productive, customer-focused, profitable, and less likely to leave. The best-performing companies understand that an employee engagement improvement strategy linked to the achievement of corporate goals will help them win in the marketplace.

I am just a student in HR that works at PETCO, but i thought i would try and answer what helps me stay motivated. At my work they have a "caught in the act program" where co-workers and/or supervisor can catch you going above and beyond to help a customer or anything of the sort. At the end of each month it is put into a raffle and you win a prize. However just having a manager letting you know that they see the effort and hard work you put in everyday is enough to me. People are your best assets and most managers dont think of it that way.

Great topic! Marc Buckingham and Curt Coffman, authors of "First, Break All the Rules" and of Gallup Organization, recommend in their book that managers need to recognize at least once every 7 days. At my company, we use various ways to encourage employee engagement. We have an online rewards and recognition program that helps encourage open and public recognition. In addition, we run a monthly lunch where each employees are given a thank you card to give to another employee that helped them out the most that month. The cards are read out loud so that the recognition is public. It is a great way to thank your employees, provide an hour for everyone to spend some time together, and provide an open and transparent forum to recognize and thank one another for their hard work.

I'm also running a survey to measure the perception of engagement gap between employees, and CEOs and employees and HR professionals. I would love your thoughts:

First, you want employees to feel engaged in their team. One tool we use is the Success Insights behavioral team assessment.
You can see a sample here
In addition, you want an organizational culture that promotes employee engagement. Is there a mentoring program in place that will engage and reward employee?
Contact me if you have any other questions.
