Tips to Motivate and Engage your Staff
‘Employee Engagement’ is a term that refers to the extent which employees or staff feel passionate about their jobs, are committed to the practice or organization, and put discretionary effort into their work. Employee engagement is not the same as employee satisfaction. When you think about your practice, do you believe your staff are excited to come to work? Are they passionate about their jobs? Are they willing to go above and beyond to achieve outstanding results? If not, you may be facing a staff engagement gap, with team members who don’t feel motivated or connected to the organization or their jobs.
There is no arguing that a highly engaged staff member is a productive one. They care about their work, drive innovation, and move their practice forward. Unfortunately, engaged staff are hard to come by. Gallup recently reported that only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work, according to the above definition of ‘engagement.’ The United States, which reported the highest levels of engagement, found that only 29% of employees reported being engaged in their places of work. These results show there is a great deal of room for improvement for leaders, small businesses and large organizations.
The good news: There are many ways to make your staff feel more inspired by their work. Many of these strategies are very easy to implement into your leadership practices and can have a profound impact on overall motivation. Below are 4 tips to motivate and engage your office staff.
