Don't forget about the cogs driving the machine!
To engage employees within a workplace, is to find a way for employees to work in the best conditions to thrive for your business. You can't expect things to change over night. You need to implement a few things first before you'll see results. So what could be improved?
Employee Voice - Communication between the business and employees
Inspiring positivity, a happy workforce is a happy business
Follow through on promises
Rewarding success is as clear as daylight
Show trust in your employees
Don't over sell things, employees will soon feel manipulated if the end result isn't what you have promised and can have the reverse effect.
Most of all, don't try to fool your team. They'll know what you're up to.
