Employee engagement is one of the most critical factors in an organization’s success. Without a motivated staff that’s excited about their work, you’ll find yourself with low performance, productivity and quality — and very high turnover.
Unfortunately, fostering engagement is easier said than done, and it’s even harder to turn engagement around when it’s in decline. The best thing a leader can do is get to the heart of the issues that are hurting engagement and attack the root cause.
We asked members of Forbes Coaches Council to share some strategies for solving employee engagement problems. Their best answers are below.
1. Find activities that take your team out of their usual surroundings.
When it’s all work and no play, life and work can get boring, and we become disconnected from those around us. Be intentional about choosing a team-building activity, such as vision boards or water parks — something or somewhere that takes you out of your usual surroundings. You start to see skills and personalities surface that you may have missed. – Frances McIntosh, Intentional Coaching LLC
