Ever thought of going into engagement management? If not, then you might want to reconsider! According to LinkedIn's annual report on the nation's fastest growing jobs, engagement management was ranked at number 7 on the list. This report was concluded by scanning member profiles, job openings and salaries.
This stat shows that engagement management is an important aspect of working life. Better engagements equal better productivity. A company that has engaged employees are most likely to succeed, have a lower turnover of staff and an overall better wellbeing and moral. Just last year according to (https://blog.linkedin.com/2019/january/10/linkedins-most-promising-jobs-of-2019) there has been a 43% growth in job openings in this field.
Rewards & Recognition is a great way to embed values because of its benefit across multiple engagement drivers. There are plenty of ways you can ensure your employees are engaged. But to do that your organisation must prioritise it's employees and create simple yet effective ways to create changes. It's important to show employees that you're committed to their wellbeing and understand the need for a work/life balance.
There are many quick wins that can be implemented in engagement management. Here are a few examples of what you can do and how to help people respond to change:
1. All for one and one for all! Arranging one on one meetings with their managers every month or 3 months, or every week if needs be, to get their voice and opinion heard.
2. Employee learning is important, if you invest in them learning something new it will show you care about them. Many companies now let their employees choose an activity to learn with a budget given to them, so whether they want to learn a new language or learn how to drive then you're giving them that helping hand and they'll always remember that.
3. Being flexible is important. This is bound to help with the success of your company. If you're tight when it comes to having time off people will begin to feel the strain.
4. Admitting and learning from mistakes is crucial. When you're a company learning new things, you must expect a hiccup along the way, people make mistakes and that is okay. Employees need to be encouraged to think about their decisions and actions, then they can share their own lessons with others.
5. Celebrating success and recognising hard work. When your employees do something great or are working hard then they need that work recognising, and that's where we can help!
