How to set clear expectations and give helpful feedback to your employees

Sometimes giving feedback to your employees can feel like a daunting task. If you think someone misunderstood your directives, this can cause frustration and distract you from being constructive. 

There are a few ways you can avoid this:

  •     Give an overview of expectations with your tasks until you feel the employee doesn’t need the reminder.
  •     If you give clear instructions and feel that your expectations aren’t met, have a follow up meeting with your employee to find out where the miscommunication happened.
  •     Try not to place blame, instead just explain that there must have been a miscommunication and explain what you need fixed.
  •     Always come from a place of trying to help your employees learn and become their best selves. Attacking people for their mistakes never helps anyone, it just leads to resentment and disengagement.

The main thing you need to do is stay consistent. Set an example and be a leader that employees can look to for guidance and follow as a mentor.

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.

Save More Time for Business Strategy by Improving Employee Engagement

 

When it comes to running a business, you need to make sure your workforce is completing their tasks efficiently, so you can focus on the bigger picture. When you have that peace of mind, you open a whole new window of opportunity for optimizing your strategy.

When your employees are fully engaged, it gives you more time to:

  •       Look at current business practices and seek out areas for improvement.
  •       Evaluate any recent changes and analyze progress lost or made.
  •       Brainstorm new business ideas.
  •       Test and implement new strategies.

At the end of the day, time is money. So, the more time you have on your side to focus on growth, the more immediate value you stand to gain.

Reduce Your HR Issues with Improved Employee Engagement

Simply put, happier employees are easier to manage whereas unhappy, disinterested employees are more difficult. If you want to reduce workplace issues like firings and other unpleasant hassles, you’ll want to start by encouraging employee engagement.

When managing your teams, keep in mind:

·       People work better when they feel like what they’re doing means something.

·       Positive reinforcement is underestimated—and free.

·       Listen to employee feedback and make a genuine effort to attend to reasonable requests.  

When it comes to curating the right work environment, managers are responsible for much of the energy that envelops the office. With that in mind, you want to make sure you foster an environment that makes people want to return to work the next day, not savor every moment leading up to it.

Improve Your Work Teams with Great Employee Engagement

If you’re in charge of managing teams at work, you know how difficult things can get when people become distracted or lose interest in the topic at hand.

The reality is that not every work situation is necessarily interesting. However, to experience the benefits that come along with certain roles, you need to put in the work in other, less inviting areas. 

Reminders for Your Team

·       Try to pay attention and get questions answered the first time around—you’ll save yourself time and anxiety.

·       Teamwork truly is everything—if everyone contributes, tasks become easier for everyone.

·       Putting in effort from the beginning means you’ll have it easier later.

At the end of the day, you just need to make sure your team understands that they benefit from their own engagement.
