Top 10 C’s to boost employee engagement in 2017


Throughout the service delivery to clients, employee engagement remained a mystery for some or too costly for others. While coming across by HNI Content Manager, I thought I could bring to light and with examples the 10 C’s of employee engagement. 

Control: the art of boosting employee engagement is basically by giving employees control over their job and priorities can create a sense of trust and value.  By asking employees how would they react in such and such situations and ask them to come up with issues but also with solutions will help in the employee growth as well. 

Confidence:  create a sense of confidence within employees to help promote their future in the company. 

Clarity:  It’s no secret that clarity in communication is key. However, clarity in goals is also important. It’s just as important for an employee to be clear on the company goals, and how that is directly impacted or influenced by the employee’s goals in order to get full employee engagement.

Connect:  Employees need to feel valued from all areas of the business, leaders, bosses, and higher position employees. Having strong relationships with leaders creates a sense of mentorship and strong employee engagement.

Credibility:  Companies that holds high ethical standards and is seen as a credible company then represent their employees as credible and can create a strong sense of integrity.

Convey:  A large part of employee engagement is understanding their impact on the organization.  Leaders in the organization need to convey employee roles clearly but also come back with direct results and impact employees had in various successes.

Contribute:  Employees engage when they know that their role has a direct impact on the success of the company. 

Career:  knowing there is opportunity for growth and not a stagnant position creates employee motivation and employee engagement.  Motivation is more likely when there is a goal to reach.

Congratulate:  give recognition to those who do well and have gone above and beyond to obtain the results companies are looking to achieve.

Collaborate:  create teams in which there is healthy competition, support, trust, and cooperation.  Good team leaders encourage teamwork to maximize the potential of a department.
