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.
