Employees are at the very heart of the strategy – they gather input regarding direction from all parts of the organisation and reflect that experience in their development.
Engagement is founded on mutual respect between employer and employee, where each values the other leading to commitment, enabling potential, creativity, and use of capability.
Enable employee interaction. Allow your staff to have a voice and respect their input. They want to know what’s in it for them other than a pay cheque, so make sure that you are addressing their personal needs.
Even at the earliest stage, when you’re trying to attract talented staff, engagement will benefit you in the long run.
You’re winning hearts and minds here. Build an environment where they want to change.
Treat your employees well. Listen to them. Trust them – and they’ll give you their best. And their best is your future success.
