Employee Engagement
Strategy and Types of Effective Communication


Employee engagement strategy and employee incentive ideas to promote teamwork in the workplace.


You cannot engage your employees without effective communication, and one of the best ways to get that fluidity going is to challenge them. Their mission is to identify what needs to change in your company, and why. Most people won't have too much difficulty coming up with a list of things that they perceive as being in need of change, and that's okay. But what's even more important is their ability to identify why the changes are a good idea.


Take a look at your employees' answers to the "why" question. This is not one of those times when you assure people that there is no right or wrong answer. There most definitely IS a right answer: The reason for any change within a corporate structure is to better meet the needs of the clients.



So it doesn't matter that employees will identify a variety of needed changes. Some will suggest better marketing communications. Others will focus on improving efficiency of client intake. Yet others will come up with more customer service reps needed, or a change in the company logo and colors. What matters most is that when you ask each employee why his suggestion is important, his answer should relate to some aspect of client satisfaction. And then the employees who pass that test represent your greatest prospects to bring about real change in the company.

They are the ones you will choose from when you are forming your next change team. Ask someone who is enthusiastic and innovative to lead an employee committee involved with your company's next big goal. He will motivate others to keep their eyes on the prize, which is to satisfy the clients you have and then accumulate more of them.

The best way to engage your employees is to draw them into this flexibility of communication. Stay involved when you establish change teams or set up employee committees, because they look to you for leadership. Your attention will motivate them even more. Remind them that their development of ideas will result in positive changes in the way the company operates-changes that will benefit the clients and also, ultimately, the employees.
