Every year, the United States loses approximately $12 billion on employee turnover. More than 25% of all workers in the United States combined feel undervalued and unmotivated to do work. It is a no brainer that people are likely to leave the organization they work for if they do not feel engaged or appreciated. So, the big question is: How do big booming companies show every employee that their work is valued and appreciated? They create engaging environments that help grow employee collaboration and productivity.
For years now, companies have experimented with things like hosting events before, during, or after work to boost employee engagement, but there is a lot more that goes into engagement than just entertaining your team members. Employee engagement needs to be a component of a comprehensive business strategy intended to immerse your workers drives, passions, and values into your organization.
Ultimately, employee engagement happens best when the goals of the business and the ambitions of the employee are fully aligned. The glue that holds these strategies together is often a combination of exceptional communication strategies, workplace initiatives, and of course, the right tools to top it all off. Please see the bullets below for a few simple examples of how to build a more engaging workplace:
Sports Jersey Day: provided as an incentive to those who go above and beyond in sales
Volunteering Time Off: Volunteering for the community and being rewarded for it
Sporting Event Watch Party: Incentive to improve teamwork and collaboration
