What’s in it for me? It’s the question that every employee has when they give feedback, fill out a survey, or participate in any sort of engagement initiative. Unfortunately, most employees hold little hope that there will be a good answer: All too often engagement initiatives are done from the top down, with little involvement by the very employees you are trying to support.
In this webcast, we’ll talk about how you can take a different, more empowering approach: One that includes employees from the beginning and supports them in specific ways. We’ll cover clear principles and tactics you can immediately start putting to work to unlock greater effectiveness and ROI from your employee engagement efforts.
When you think of typical approaches to engagement, what do you think of? Most strategies presented to me consist of external inducements: things like cash bonuses, reward and recognition systems, and one-off manager trainings that have been around for decades. Organizations have simply spent too much time thinking of ways to externally influence employees into doing what they desire and too little time tapping into the natural drivers of engagement. We need to let go of our transactional approach to engagement and instead focus on a more authentic, employee-centered approach.
