The Great Engagement’s Urgent Call to Organizations

The Great Engagement urgently calls organizations to actively engage their employees.

Do you know how to actively engage with your employees to have the most positive impact?

Please note, saying “be thankful you have a job!” is not an effective way to engage your staff even though an “attitude of gratitude” is powerful. If this is your approach then don’t be surprised if you are hosting more good-bye parties than welcome parties.

Employees want more than a paycheque.

The three most common reasons Gallup found employees to be disengaged at work were:

  • Not seeing opportunities for development
  • Not feeling connected to the company’s purpose
  • Not having strong relationships at work

Which one of these apply to your organization?

Which one will you strengthen to increase engagement with your employees?

What actions are you going to take to actively engage your employees?

The Great Engagement is an urgent call to action for businesses to retain and attract great employees.

While there is no quick fix, there are simple leadership practices that can produce immediate improvements in engagement.

To develop your 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.
