Reengaging With Employees After the Summer Break

As we find ourselves in the last stretch of the summer months, it’s important to take note of how to help employees return to the office and get in that productive mindset. If employees are regularly in and out of the office, it can cause everyone to be in more of a distracted headspace. 

When you take the time to re-engage with your employees after summer vacation, you can expect:

–       Lower risk of burnout

–       Stronger company culture

–       Improved work-life balance

Getting back into a routine is good for your mental health and your employees will feel more empowered when they feel like they’re back in control. Help them understand that and make sure to provide the resources to help them get there.

Registration is now open for our next Great Engagement: Engage and Mobilize Employees Training Program—starting October 12, 2022!

The Engage and Mobilize Program focuses on simple but powerful behaviours that will have maximum impact on your leaders’ ability to engage his or her employees.

How Leadership Clarity Prevents Barriers to Employee Engagement

When it comes to employee engagement, you might be thinking about ways to improve your staff’s processes. However, all great engagement strategies require a strong sense of direction, and that comes from the leader. 

Before you start thinking about ideas to put into practice, think about where you’re at in terms of your goals and expectations. 

–        If resources were no object, what project would you look to complete first and why?

–        What is your ideal timeline for your current projects?

–        Do you feel like you your team needs to expand? Or do you think you could accomplish more with a better strategy?

Once you have a stronger sense of what results you need to see, you’ll be able to direct your team exactly where they need to go.

Question for leaders

  • Does your company offer any kind of events or activities that employees can engage in together?

Diversity and Inclusion Best Practices for Employee Engagement: Pay Equity and Transparency

It should come as no surprise that people want transparency and pay equity, and as an ethical business owner, you should want to provide that. When it comes to diversity and inclusion practices, pay equity is at the top of the list.

Pay equity affects an organization’s reputation, and you can’t expect your employees to be engaged in their work when they don’t feel fairly acknowledged for their work. So where do you start?

–        Gather information to identify pay gaps

–        Identify potential areas of risk for pay gaps

–        Evaluate opportunities for equity as it pertains to race, gender, or LGBTQ+ status

Compensation affects your employees every day and it can affect their personal life if they’re unable to make ends meet. If someone is under the impression that someone who completes an equal amount of work to them gets more compensation, you can’t reasonably expect them to be equally as engaged. If you aren’t implementing practices to gather insights on this yet, now’s the time to ask yourself what you can do.

Questions for leaders:

  • What measures do you take to ensure transparency and pay equity?
  • Do you think you could do more?
  • Does this present a notable challenge to leaders?

Diversity and Inclusion Best Practices for Employee Engagement: Improving Visibility

The engagement culture you create in the workplace trickles down to the experience you give to your customers, and ensuring diversity and inclusion is more important than ever. While it might seem easy enough to talk about diversity and inclusion, it’s an entirely different thing to take actionable steps toward creating an ideal work environment.

The first thing to consider is visibility—identifying the diversity of your workforce in order to better understand where your efforts should start.

When you take advantage of diversity metrics, you’re in a much better position to implement new initiatives to promote a culture of inclusion. 

Questions for leaders:

  • Are you currently taking actionable steps towards improved diversity practices in the workplace?
  • Do you have anything in place to gather important metrics of your workforce? If not, what is your plan?
