Everyone’s looking for the recipe for employee engagement. How do you get motivated workers? To start, think about the six components to Employee Engagement listed below:
Is the employee a FIT with the organization–its culture? Is the purpose of the organization meaningful to the employee? Are the values of the organization in harmony with the employee’s values?
Is the employee a FIT with the job? Does the employee feel one’s work is significant and is the best use of one’s abilities?
Do you have a trusting workplace where people feel their leaders have integrity–they’re honest and fair? Do employees respect their leaders?
Does work feel like family? Is collaboration/teamwork encouraged? Do employees have friends at work?
Do you have ongoing, open, two-way communication? Do employees feel like leaders/managers listen to them? Is information freely shared?
Does the organization support individual development? Do employees have challenging assignments? Does the workplace encourage achievement and mastery?
Do employees have autonomy? Do they feel involved? Do they participate in decision making? Is work flexible?
When employee’s human needs are met, they are more engaged.
