Retaining good staff is arguably one of the greatest challenges that employers face. So what can you do to attract, retain, and engage your staff to make sure that they're motivated to do their best for the duration of their tenure?
As a leader, you may think engagement is something as simple as providing your staff with projects that you think are stimulating and challenging, so as to give them a sense of direction. It's not wrong and if done correctly, can raise work productivity and business profit.
However, engagement for employees may mean being in a workplace that is rewarding professionally and personally. They expect their work to somehow cater to their individual needs and aspirations. At the end of the day, they want to feel respected, valued, and trusted at work.
Engagement, therefore, means connecting the heart and mind through values and dreams. Great leaders foster an environment that nurtures curiosity, learning, fun, innovation, and respect. For this to happen authentically and organically, it needs to be based on trust, opportunity, and fairness.
