Engage your staff

Employee engagement seems to be the “fad” these days. Yet engaging your employees is not a passing fad but rather, a crucial strategy to keep your employees and managers operating with optimism, intentionality in service delivery, and enthusiasm that will positively transform your organization.

 Here are a few ways you can engage your staff:

  •  Consult with your staff before making any changes affecting their work.
  • Value the differences in opinions and ideas.
  • Listen to and respect your staff member’s opinions.  Be open to new ideas and suggestions. 
  • When presented with a problem or question, ask how they might solve it. 
  • Recognize their contributions.  Make it timely.  

Remember that your staff members are perhaps your organization’s most important customers!  Engaging your staff members shows them that you value them!
