The 3 promoters of employee engagement

Now times have changed, we no longer live in the slave models where the foreman, a whip in his hand, was next to the worker giving orders and watching him perform the work. Surely as time goes by, it brings a permanent evolution, and in the workplace itself it definitely has brought significant changes. Every day more companies are concerned that their workers are well involved with their work, and are looking for ways that this is accomplished in a greater proportion. We will learn about the 3 elements that drive their workers to feel more involved and engaged.

a.) Good leadership:

It is perhaps the fundamental base. A good leader not only directs but accompanies, gives feedback, proposes, suggests and is aware of the situation to perform real-time management. He pushes his team to reach its goal and is the primal model of involvement. He is the first really committed to the objective for the company’s sake rather than for his personal satisfaction.He may be the direct supervisor or a coordinator, but it falls on him the resposibility of leadership that aims to create a culture of feeling part of the organization.

b.) Meaningful work:

We all want to have the best position of the company and better pay, but this we will get according to our profile. Many times we have to work on what is available, even in things outside of our strengths, talents and skills, however, it is a joint effort of both the company and the employee that the work will be meaningful: From the company’s standpoint, it is to provide the conditions necessary for the person to feel well, happy and motivated enough so as to exercise, monitor, control and evaluate their achievements; from the employee’s standpoint it is putting their talent and effort to give the best results, without anyone asking what it is but to fulfill and give a little more.

c.) Professional and Personal Growth:

It’s a crucial element, because nobody wants to stay the same for all of its life.The necessary conditions should be given to provide at the level of permanent training and academic incentives,the conditions which will allow the development of the individual in all areas, in order to continue getting better achievements for future promotions and better jobs, both within the company or elsewhere. This gives certainly an involvement to the extent that the person feels it is part of the company and not just another employee doing the same for all eternity.

Thus, adding these concepts assertively, we will make employees feel total adherence to the goals, mission and vision of the company.

What kills employee motivation?

What are the main factors that discourage employees?

According to the eminent businessman and writer Dale Carnegie, employees do not resign from the company but from the people with whom they don’t want to work. This maxim is completely true in 100% of the cases. However, when an employee decides to quit his or her job, everyone loses. And almost always, the company is the most harmed.

We must bear in mind that it usually takes several months for the average worker to start to become profitable for the company. Each new addition to the company involves considerable expense until the worker begins to be efficient and productive. If after months of preparation, the employee decides to leave, for whatever reason, the company must re-invest time, money and resources on another worker, multiplying the expense and subtracting the benefits. In other words, dissatisfied workers decrease the productivity of the company.

The great challenge: How to motivate your staff?

Therefore one of the major saving measures for companies will be to retain the loyalty of their employees. Not an easy task at a time when mobility is on the agenda. To achieve employee loyalty and improve productivity, the creation a good working environment is a priority.

Generally, workers migrate to companies that offer better wages and economic incentives. However, contrary to popular belief, the economic factor is not the main reason for dissatisfaction among employees. We will have to dig deeper in order to find out and know the real reasons why they feel unmotivated and seek to achieve their goals in other companies.

If the economic factor is not decisive, what are the real reasons for dissatisfaction?

  • Feeling ignored during a promotion. For a worker, there is nothing more frustrating than to realize that no one considers their worth, expertise and that others less capable or less experienced are promoted before them.
  • To discover that they earn less than other employees performing similar work .
  • They receive very low salary increases or even none.
  • There are no clear guidelines as to how to perform the work nor a good internal communication. This causes the worker to feel confused, disoriented and frustrated.
  • Loss of empathy and confidence in the leaders and superiors.
  • Within the company, there are no opportunities for promotion or advancement.
  • The worker feels his or her effort and value are not adequately recognized by the company.
  • When the work requires a considerable effort, too much stress, anxiety and fatigue or a sacrifice of personal and family life.

 

According to a recent study by Forbes magazine, the reasons for dissatisfaction among employees are very significant and should be taken into account:

  • More than a third of workers see themselves working in a different company in the next 12 months.
  • Almost half of the employees do not identify themselves with their bosses.
  • The career goals of more than 60% of employees do not agree with their superiors’ plans for them.
  • Only about 25% of workers believe that their work is recognized by employers.
