How to Increase Employee Engagement with Leadership Vulnerability

The more disconnected your employees feel, the greater risk they run of becoming disengaged. It’s not uncommon for people to keep their struggles to themselves, even at work, for fear of being judged, viewed as incompetent, and for other personal reasons. This can become quite isolating, so it’s important to set a precedent in your workplace that mental health is a top priority. 

Being a good leader is all about setting an example. If you show your employees that it’s okay not to feel 100% great all the time, there’s a good chance it’ll take off some pressure and help them feel more engaged in their work. Instead of being distracted by what they can’t control, they’ll feel more empowered to take control of what is within their grasp.

If you can learn to be vulnerable while keeping it professional, you stand to develop more meaningful relationships at work and give your employees more space to feel comfortable.

Why Employee Well-Being is Essential to the Future of Your Company

Did you know that only 70% of small businesses in Canada make it to five years? One of the best ways to make a significant impact on the overall health and success of your organization is by focusing on employee retention. The reality is, you save a lot of time and money when you focus on supporting your existing employees, instead of starting at square one with new ones. Not only that, but your business will be stronger when you have staff that also feels invested in the organization. 

If you want to run your business at optimal efficiency, you need employees that also feel driven to achieve your goals. The fastest way to building that bridge between your employees and your goals is through fostering employee well-being.   

These days, mental health and employee well-being are top priorities for HR managers and business owners all over the world. In Canada, the corporate wellness market was valued at USD 2.4 billion in 2021 and is only expected to continue to grow beyond 2022. People are becoming increasingly aware of the ways stress affects our lives—both internally and externally. So, it’s important that those in leadership positions take the time to understand how they can better support employee well-being and contribute to an overall positive environment focused on growth. 

What is employee well-being?

The term employee wellbeing includes everything that can impact the mental and physical health of someone in the workplace. 

This includes but is not limited to:

·       Job satisfaction

·       Workplace culture

·       Work-life balance

You should always welcome feedback from your employees whenever possible. Even if you need to do it anonymously to make people feel more comfortable, it really helps to have a genuine understanding of how everyone feels. You can’t find a solution for a problem if you don’t know it exists, so make sure your staff knows that at the end of the day, it’s all about improving their day-to-day. 

Why does employee well-being matter at work?

Keeping employee wellbeing a priority benefits everyone in the workplace. Management will have a happier and more productive workforce, and employees will be more at ease and feel fulfilled in their work environment.

Advantages of employee well-being

The bottom line is, employee wellbeing helps the organization as a whole just as much as it does the individual. When you spend a little time investing in your employees and how they feel, you can expect to conduct work more efficiently and experience improved relationships across the board.

Some other benefits of employee wellbeing initiatives include:

·       Increased employee engagement

·       Improved company reputation

·       Lowers risk of burnout

·       Feelings of empowerment lead to better productivity

With workplace environments changing, it’s important to make sure that employees feel supported and engaged throughout the workday. When you focus your attention to the well-being of your employees, you’ll start to notice positive changes in their work performance as well. 

At the end of the day, it’s all about maintaining a sense of balance, structure, and providing the feedback and support your employees need. When you focus on employee well-being, you’re going to naturally improve the function of your business.

Why You Need to Define Your Employee Engagement Strategy

It’s all well and good to talk about employee engagement—anyone even remotely involved in a business understands how important it is. However, when do you stop talking and start acting on your insights? The simple answer is now—there’s no better time to test new productivity hacks and work processes.

Before you can start implementing anything though, you need to define your strategy. Consider some of the following so you can pinpoint what you should focus on:

–        Where is productivity currently lacking? 

–        Is there a certain time of day or week that employees seem less engaged?

–        Have you conducted any surveys to learn more about why employees might be less engaged?

At the end of the day, your ultimate goal is figuring out what works best for your organization, and what makes the most positive difference in your workflow.    

Question for leaders

1.     Does your organization currently have an employee engagement strategy in place?

Understanding the Difference Between Employee Engagement and Job Satisfaction

It’s important to note that employee satisfaction is not the same thing as engagement. Some people might use these terms interchangeably when in reality, satisfaction deals more with a sense of content, and engagement is focused on going above and beyond in one’s position. Someone with job satisfaction is fine with where they are, whereas someone who is engaged feels a sense of urgency to meet and surpass expectations.

What true employee engagement looks like:

–       Emotional connection to work

–       Driven to advance company goals

–       Passionate about the outcome of their efforts

–       Happy to be there because of growth potential

What job satisfaction looks like:

–       Focused on pay and benefits

–       Priority is on job security

–       Not driven by emotional commitment

–       Happy to be there because it meets their basic requirements

Question for leaders

1.     How do you measure the difference between employees that are engaged compared to those who are just satisfied?

Communicating the Value of Employee Engagement

We all know how important employee engagement is for the success of any organization. But the question is do employees understand that? What’s even more important than that, what’s in it for them?

You can’t expect your employees to make their engagement a priority if they don’t see an exchange of value. In other words, you need to communicate how they benefit from becoming more engaged at work. 

There are a few different ways you can do this:

–       Offer milestone rewards for employee achievements

–       Get involved with projects and show employees how valuable they are to your goals

–       Make sure employees understand how important their role is to your organization
