Are my employees engaged?

What really matters in engaging employees?

Engaged employees who are committed, putting forth extra effort and who feel connected to the organization don’t get that way because of a “program.” See what you can do to keep them engaged.

Consider these questions:

  • How are your managers doing in motivating your most valuable employees? How are you doing?
  • Do you know what mistakes to avoid?
  • Would you like to know how you, the manager, can be the key to improving employee engagement?

How can you improve engagement?

Engaged employees who are committed, putting forth that extra effort and who truly feel connected to the organization don’t get that way because of a “program”. Specialty coffee and ‘free pizza day’ will not inspire an employee or keep them from leaving your company if they work for a toxic manager. People leave managers, not companies. AGH Employer Solutions recently hosted a webinar on employee engagement, and this infographic captures the key points you need to consider.
