Employee Engagement

Employee Engagement

The case for employee engagement is clear: Engaged employees’ work more productively, deliver higher levels of customer service, experience greater levels of satisfaction, and improve the bottom-line performance of the organisation. That’s good for the individuals who work there and great for the company that employs them.

But during times of organisational change or displacement leaders need to pay additional attention to the doing things that effectively engage both the ‘hearts and minds’ of their employees.  Because if they neglect this important aspect and just try and ram their changes in – they will often be confronted with significant (and lasting) resistance.

Solutions for Engagement

Employee engagement really is a multi-dimensional concept that describes the extent to which employees apply themselves at work – encompassing cognitive, emotional and behavioural components.  We work with our clients to ensure all three aspects are addressed to effectively engage people in the change process, including:

  • STAKEHOLDER MANAGEMENTfacilitating stakeholder enrolment, alignment and commitment
  • COMMUNICATIONS  – delivering targeted communications throughout the entire change process
  • NETWORKING CHANGE – high involvement mechanisms that extend the reach and depth of  change

The bottom line is that engaged employees come to work actively interested in what the organisation is trying to achieve (cognitive); they are highly motivated and committed to the organisation (emotional); and, to the benefit of the organisation, engaged employees ‘go that extra mile’ to help the organisation to succeed (behavioural). 

So the case for employee engagement remains very clear – which is why it’s vitally important to get it right first time (because they won’t trust you if you don’t).
