Recommended Action Items

Consider implementing the following action items as
part of your personalized strategy to improve the level
of employee engagement within your team.

(1) Core Values

Reaffirm the guiding principles of the organization and communicate examples of how they are being applied. Ensure staff are firmly aware of the organization’s mission and leaders walk the walk.


(2) Close Working Relationships

Create a culture of work hard / play hard within the workplace. Promoting activities outside the workplace will help co-workers develop special bonds with each other. Improved relationships within the office improve communication and increase productivity.


(3) Encourage Participation

Encouraging employee discussion on key decisions will help increase self-worth and will help promote future contributions in the future.  Employees working in an environment where their voice is heard will assist in their goal to reach their full potential.


(4) Recognize & Reward Hard Work

Employees thrive on being recognized for their contributions and seeing their impact. Recognizing and rewarding employees can instill pride that their work in the organization is valued and meaningful. Rewards programs should cover the spectrum from formal to even simple employee shout-outs and thank you emails.
