Why Engage your Teams?

Whether you have one or multiple, finding ways to Engage Teams is essential! As of 2023, only 10% of employees are engaged in the workplace – you’ll want something a little higher for your team! Boosting engagement has multiple benefits, including increased productivity and higher employee retention. A happy team is a successful team, and engagement is a strong indicator of enjoyment in the workplace – don’t overlook it!

Ways to Engage Teams

1. Recognise and Appreciate their Efforts

It can be easy for this one to slip the radar sometimes. But it shouldn’t! Recognising and appreciating your employees is one sure fire way to make sure they know you have noticed what they’re doing! By recognising your team, they’re likely to continue working to a high standard to receive the appreciation again! Show your team that you care, it could make the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful team!

2. Organise Team Building Activities

Team Activities are a great way to bring teams together and to engage them with each other. Did you know that Team Building can increase communication amongst teams? This can lead them to learn new things about each other and therefore engage with each other! After all, isn’t that what Team Bonding is all about? These activities can be quarterly, annually, or just as an occasional event! In order to obtain optimal results, discuss with your team and learn how often these types of activities might benefit them!

3. Clear and Open Communication

You know the phrase “communication is key”? Well, pay attention, because it’s true! If your employees feel that your lines of communication are open, they’ll feel more engaged with you and their work. This is because they’ll know that you care and want to do their best! In addition to this, ensuring you are communicating your goals to your team will help them understand what they’re working towards! This too can increase engagement and lead to higher success,

4. Facilitate Growth

One of the best ways to engage teams is to facilitate their growth. When it comes to work and careers, everyone’s looking to grow in some way. By promoting internally and having regular salary reviews, teams and employees will know that you’re invested in their growth. This leads to them being more engaged as they want to achieve these goals that they now know are possible to them.

5. Trust Them!

If you watch over your teams every second of every day, they’re bound to feel like you don’t trust them! Simply by trusting in your employees and giving them space to work, they’re much more likely to be engaged and produce outstanding work! Although some people do work well under pressure, many don’t. So trust your employees! If you do, you’ll see a considerable improvement in their work!
