How Emotions Fuel Employee Engagement

We all know how emotions can change the course of our day and impact our interactions and experiences at work. However, have you ever thought about using emotion to fuel employee engagement? 

How to Implement Emotional Engagement 

While there are several ways to achieve emotional engagement, here are the basics of emotional engagement:

  1. Lead with empathy

Employees notice when their supervisors are invested in their needs and care about their expectations. Taking the time to sympathize and understand where your employees are coming from leads to better engagement and loyalty.

2. Create a connection

The stronger a bond is between a manager and employee, the more likely an employee is to overperform and even stay longer within an organization. 

3. Communication is key

Miscommunication is the root of most conflict, so whenever you’re in doubt—overcommunicate! When everyone is on the same page, you’re laying the foundation for positive emotions and a sense of direction. 

The bottom line is, when your employees are emotionally invested in their work, they automatically become more engaged!

How to make employee engagement contagious

People tend to respond to others based on exchanged energy and the surrounding environment. If you want to create a workplace that fosters an engaging environment, you just need to keep a few things in mind. 

  •     Create teams made up of engaged and less engaged employees.
  •     Encourage engaged employees to address concerns with less engaged employees.
  •     Offer rewards for team members that show any form of improvement—the greater the improvement, the higher the reward.  

At the end of the day, you want to empower your engaged employees so their energy can be adopted by those who are less motivated and engaged. As long as you stay consistent with your efforts, you’re sure to see some improvement.

How Managers Can Support Employees’ Mental Health

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 20% of people in Canada will experience a mental health problem or illness in any given year. If you want to make sure your employees feel supported at work, here are some tips you can start implementing as soon as today!

  •     Conduct weekly check-ins—ask your employee what they need to go into their next week of work feeling prepared.   
  •     Create an anonymous forum where employees can submit questions and concerns without the worry of upsetting anyone.
  •     Be flexible about breaks—if someone prefers to take a few short breaks throughout the day instead of one long break in the middle, give your employee room to recuperate in their preferred way.

At the end of the day, it’s just about communication, open-mindedness, and listening to your employees.

Top Mental Health Tips for Employee Engagement

With workplace dynamics shifting all over the globe, employees and managers alike might be experiencing different forms of mental health struggles. Regardless of the details, mental health directly affects workplace performance, so mitigating this is crucial for employee engagement. 

  •     Communicate with employees through their preferred channels to reduce workplace anxiety—If you know an employee prefers email over a phone call, chances are you’re going to get the task completed faster if you send an email.
  •    Make sure managers are conducting beginning and end of day breakdowns with their teams—try to help anyone falling and reduce the chances of burnout.
  •    Be open to constructive criticism—if an employee voices their opinion about something that could be improved, be willing to listen and adjust wherever suitable.  

When you focus on helping your employees feel their best, it translates into their work and ultimately helps everyone!

Improve Your Customer Service with Employee Engagement

Customer service employees are a direct reflection of your business. Disgruntled and dissatisfied employees are much more likely to have unpleasant interactions with customers. Similarly, engaged and committed employees will generally act with the best intentions in mind.

Why are engaged employees better for customer service?

· Better at responding to sensitive situations.

· An employee’s attitude is the first thing a customer gets to experience from your business. 

· More likely to be more knowledgeable and helpful.

· More attentive and aware of the situation at hand. 

At the end of the day, you want to make sure you have employees that represent you in the best way possible. If you start by working on employee engagement, those other benefits will naturally follow.

Boost Workplace Loyalty with Employee Engagement

It’s no surprise that happier, more engaged employees are more likely to keep showing up. As human beings, it’s easier to stay motivated when we have something to look forward to. 

According to recent reports, over 60% of businesses have a harder time keeping employees rather than hiring them in the first place.

This isn’t something to take lightly, as more employees continue to report their dissatisfaction, now is the time for business owners to act and ensure their workforce has the proper tools to feel confident in their roles.  

When you show employees you’re invested in them, they’re more likely to become invested in you and your business. Instead of falling on the wrong side of the statistic, take control of your future while boosting morale and improving the dynamic of your company all at the same time.
