Retaining and Engaging a Happy Workforce Takes the Right People and Tools
Employee engagement can be that elusive factor in employee retention efforts that is so difficult to pinpoint, measure and manage. Successful HR leaders and managers are adept at recognizing when an employee’s level of engagement is faltering, a people-skill which is both an art and science. Gauging overall satisfaction levels for your entire workforce through a combination employee surveys and candid direct employee discussions can help management to identify some key elements in boosting employee morale, ways to improve corporate culture and any potential employee benefits and/or compensation-related components that may be eroding satisfaction, engagement and ultimately retention. When a previously happy, team-player becomes almost completely disengaged, it can be detrimental to your workplace atmosphere and eventually could create a toxic environment with a cascade of attrition. Engaged employees are more likely to be productive, innovative and collaborative, which boosts your bottom line. Most engaged employees feel empowered in their positions and are happy with the ongoing training and tools provided by their employer along with open lines of communication and continual feedback to address concerns and let them know their contributions are valued.
