Tips for Keeping Your Employees Engaged at Work

Communicate with your team and "be real".
Create a culture of open communication within your office. Allow employees to "be real" with you and do the same in return. Do whatever you need to do to make sure you are constantly sharing your ideas for the big picture with your team and be open about what you see for the future of the company. Try:

  • Weekly meetings
  • Monthly company lunches
  • Weekly team breakfast outings

Figure out what setting works best for you team communication and make a habit out of doing that constantly.

Give your employees the tools they need to be successful.
Are you providing the education, training, and equipment your employees need to their jobs successfully? For example, if you own a marketing company and it's apparent that your Graphic Designer needs a new laptop and the current one they use is failing, be sure it is fixed in a timely manner of that they have a new one to do their job effectively. These are the needed expenses and you are investing in your employees!

Give recognition and thanks!
If your employees don't feel appreciated, how long do you expect them to stick around? Recognize them for the great work they do for you and figure out how they feel most comfortable being recognized, whether that be:

  • A thank you card
  • Ackowledgement in front of the whole team
  • A free lunch
  • Posting their good work on a note and starting an employee thank you board
Doing things like this can create a pleasant employee culture, which is good for employee retention.

Show an interest in your employees as people.
Ask your employees how they are doing and if they come into work upset one day, take the time to ask if they are ok. Showing that you care can go a long way.
