I see the term a lot and I should probably have a solid grasp on exactly what it means, but the truth is, I don’t. I found the following definition via ‘engage for success’…
I don’t know about you, but to me, that’s just good management, both the noun and the verb. A good manager, with a good grasp of how to manage will promote all of that with their staff.
Well, to promote or hire and then crucially, train their managers in the best possible way for starters. All too often we hear of managers who were made managers purely because of their ability in their previous role rather than because they have the attributes of a good manager.
Besides that, employee engagement just requires engagement. Seek feedback, good or bad, and more importantly, act on it. Involve your staff in decision-making wherever possible. Communicate goals and how individuals are able to contribute to them. Staff who feel like they’re given a role in a goal will work hard to ensure they contribute effectively.
