FSA administrators, Clarity Benefit Solutions, shares unique ways to boost employee engagement.
When it comes to employee engagement, today’s employers must realize it is up to them to actively inspire the workforce to be their best. The following are some unique methods to inspire the workforce, so they remain engaged.
Learn employees’ motivations. It is vital that employers find out that motivates their employees on the job. Why do they come to work? Are they looking for validation, or do they have a passion for the product or industry they are in? An employer must ask these important questions. And, once an employer discovers what his or her employees’ passions are, it should prove easier to inspire employees to excel in their chosen careers and look forward to coming to work every day.
Give employees incentives. Who wouldn’t look forward to coming to work if there were loyalty and rewards programs to participate in? Stores, retailers, and restaurants are known for these programs, and employers should follow suit to increase employee engagement. PTO hours, events, tickets, and gift cards are just a few examples of employee motivators.
Inquire about employees’ life outside of work. Although technology has invaded nearly every aspect of our lives, it cannot replace face-to-face interaction. Be sure to take an active interest in their lives by inquiring about their interactions outside of the workplace and listen when they talk. Compliment them on their successes and offer them feedback on their job performance. These tactics will result in engaged, motivated employees who will continually produce! Everyone benefits when the line of communications remains open.
