Only 32% of workers in the United States are engaged in the workplace (forbes.com). Employee engagement is not only crucial to productivity and efficiency in the workplace, but it will also increase employee commitment and retainment.
Creating trust can be one of the most important steps towards employee engagement. Here are some tips we’d like to share:
- Care more to create genuine connections that compel you and everyone who works with and for you to show up every day accountable to one another and focused on results.
- Work from the inside out to build powerful relationships that bridge the gaps.
- Shift your mindset to one of positive intent, teaching and learning, shared goals, delivering value, and empowering success. (Chasing Relevance – Dan Negroni)
