How to Engage Employees Who Work From Home

It can be tough managing employees who work in different locations, much less those working from home. You never know what distractions your employees might be dealing with, so it’s important to take certain steps to keep your employee engagement as high as possible.

To keep your employees motivated from home you’ll want to:

  •    Require everyone to log in by a certain time for a morning huddle.
  •    Have check in’s that focus on helping the employee complete their work rather than condemning how they spend their time.
  •    Use productivity apps to keep everyone informed—even on the go.
  •    Create a reward system that suits your business. (ex: anyone who completes “x” number of tasks gets to log out early on Friday)

At the end of the day, engagement only works when both parties enjoy the interaction. Try to focus on building a positive, collaborative relationship with your employees rather than micromanaging them.

To develop more strategies our Great Engagement: Engage and Mobilize Employees Training Program focuses on simple but powerful behaviours that will have maximum impact on a leader’s ability to engage his or her employees.
