If you haven’t already set your resolutions for 2022 and with only a few days left of January, now is the time to do so.
This could be focusing on growing areas of your business that are already successful or rebuilding and improving the areas that might not be doing so well.
Perhaps, you could have your sights set on increasing employee engagement, tackling strategies to retain your top talent, and increasing workplace outcomes?
Employee engagement solutions
Since early 2021, the term ‘The Great Resignation’ has been used to describe the current economic trend of employees voluntarily resigning from their jobs en masse.
Although the news is rife with reports of the Great Resignation, at Akyra, we prefer the term ‘The Great Re-Evaluation’ which more accurately explains what’s happening in the workplace.
Put simply, employees are re-evaluating where they want to be and what they want, before resigning. This means that their current workplace didn’t quite cut it.
Despite several changes to the workplace in recent years (e.g. technology disrupters and the recent increases of remote work), the fundamental measures of what makes a workplace great haven’t changed.
The best workplaces are those that care for their employees and position employee engagement as a catalyst for improving important business outcomes.
As a business, if you want to talk about wellbeing, manager development, and performance, you must also speak about employee engagement.
Why does employee engagement matter?
Employee engagement is the involvement and enthusiasm of employees in both their work and the workplace. By measuring this engagement, it gives an employer an understanding of how employees are feeling in relation to; developing in and thinking about their jobs.
Every conversation a manager has with an employee affects their engagement – and engaged employees perform better, proving employee engagement is a foundational component to workplace outcomes.
