Involving employees in their tasks is an entrepreneurial knack for you. One-man-army-concept can’t see you getting success in business. You need a lot of co-workers to help you achieve your goals. Your goals and their individual goals must be unified for sure. And that unification of goals and efficacy in work come seamlessly in the organization when your employees are involved and engaged incessantly. But engaging them is a subtle task. Some things are to be known to carve this engagement:
1. Every employee is a different person: Every other employee working at your place is a different human being. You need different tactics to engage them individually. Motivation can come from different sources for different people and you must keep that in mind to engage your co-workers.
2. Engaged employees are more committed: When you keep your employees engaged constantly through different programmes or initiatives, they remain involved in their respective tasks and this involvement for a longer period makes them attached to the tasks and the place which intensifies their commitment to the organization. Secondly, a regular involvement doesn’t let them to think outside the periphery of their assignments.
3. Encouraging ambience is necessary: You must do your best to construct an ambience in your organization that has a positive impact for everyone working there. If evolution, growth and development float in the air, a palpable propensity to move up in skill and stature is ingrained in the organization’s culture. Every employee at your place then wants to grow in responsibility and attaches his career-growth to the organizational progression which is the best scenario for any organization and the best result of employee-engagement as a policy.
4. Let engagement trickle in from the top: If people in your office at the higher hierarchy get engaged properly and continuously, that rubs off on other employees at the lower rung as well. So, you must definitely involve your high-level employees to ingrain the system and then the involvement spreads swiftly and becomes an easier job.
Employee-involvement or engagement is a must to extract higher productivity from the employees and it must be done with a few things in mind.
