An engaged employee is an asset to the company. TINYpulse sent out surveys to understand what motivates employees to stay focused in work and loyal to their companies. After analyzing the survey responses, the employee engagement firm came up with a few trends that are in demand among employees. In this article at Forbes, Victor Lipman shares with you these key guidelines.
Know Your Employees Better
Knowing the pulse of your employees is key to your organization’s success. Giving them a good work environment, appreciating and rewarding their dedication, and addressing the roadblocks—technical or physical—are necessary.
Give Constructive Feedback
A recent report conveys that 65 percent of employees complained they were not getting enough feedback to improve themselves. Millennial employees are more disposed to receiving feedback than previous generations. As per the report generated by the TINYpulse survey, your employees feel that they are an important part of your organization’s machinery and that you care about their career growth when they receive continuous feedback. Moreover, more tools are coming up making it easier for project managers to provide feedback, indicating a rise in this trend.
Empower Your Middle Managers
The survey also suggests that 53 percent of employees demand their immediate managers to be involved in employee engagement activities. However, these managers are overly loaded with work and highly unappreciated in organizations. Empowering your middle managers will help them cater to the needs of the employees and increase employee loyalty.
Train Your Leaders
Majority of organizations lack in having a proper infrastructure to train employees. They expect employees to learn things on the job and leaders to learn skills themselves to fill the gap of a proper trainer. 56 percent of senior employees do not think they are equipped to fill the role of a leader. Boost the confidence level of experienced professionals to take on leadership roles by arranging proper training sessions. Also, identify young employees who have leadership potential to prevent a lack of resources when baby boomers retire.
