3 Tips to Keep Employees Engaged and Happy

Grow Your Business

Keeping your employees engaged and happy is important for not only their health and success, but also for the success of the company as a whole.

There’s just one major question: How? How do employers increase engagement and happiness and ensure their employees feel like valued humans? How can this be measured? And how will this overall affect work performance?

1. Improve employee satisfaction

When an employee is engaged and satisfied in the workplace, he or she is much more likely to have a vested interest in their employer and will be less likely to leave for another job. This can lead to more productivity in the workplace as well. Improving employee satisfaction can be done through giving small initiatives to just simply giving your employees recognition for a job well done!

Showing your employees that you care about their wellbeing will help to drive the success of each employee and of the company as a whole. Offering incentives to your employees doesn’t have to be expensive. Your employees are not expecting you to break the bank giving them gifts, they just want to be shown that they matter.

2. Make investments in employees

Invest in your greatest asset - your employees. Solid employees are a company's greatest asset, which is why harboring a strong manager-employee relationship can make a difference.

Offering your employees leadership development programs can show that you want your employees to succeed and develop themselves in their careers. The results of these programs are hard to measure, therefore many organizations can’t know the true potential. These programs offer so much more positive change than companies realize, and they show your employees that you want them to improve and are willing to help.

Another benefit of these programs is that they give your employees a break from their typical day-to-day work, helping to keep them from getting burnt out.

3. Keep the office flexible and fun

It's important that a company has a positive atmosphere that is supportive for employees and promotes creative thinking and collaboration among all. After all, a positive work environment creates a desire to accomplish the tasks of the day with enthusiasm.

It is good to offer a workplace that gives employees options for where and how they work when they are in office. Giving the option to work from home occasionally can also help show your employees that you want what’s best for them. Have spaces that are enclosed if employees work better in private with no distractions. Make sure to also have spaces that are open to encourage employee interaction and keep employees from feeling closed off and alone.

What does this mean for you as an owner or business manager? Look for ways to make the office experience more rewarding, transparent, and more fulfilling.
Understand what motivates and drives your employees by gathering feedback from within the office and taking action from what you learn.
