A successful and engaged team comprises of employees who have a sense of purpose. Each role exists for a reason, and when employees understand the impact of their effort, it makes it easy to work towards the goals

Fremont, CA: Employee engagement is the emotional commitment an employee has to their role, the organization, and stakeholders. It is one of the most valuable differentiators for organizations.

When employees feel engaged, organizations benefit from higher satisfaction levels, enhanced productivity, and higher profits.

Here are four crucial employee engagement trends that organizations can implement:

Employee Wellness

Companies with robust physical and mental wellness programs have employees who perform better and are more engaged with their work than those without a program.

A successful wellness program needs effort and buy-in from the team, which in turn offers great returns. Healthy, team-oriented competition is a good way to involve employees and promote a healthy level of fitness that is fun and positive.

Employees want a variety of learning and development opportunities to stay engaged and interested in their roles. Failing to enable employees’ development can lead to a decline in efficiency and growth.

Continued learning is a vital aspect of an engaged team where leaders can directly impact the growth of individuals.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity is about representing various backgrounds in organizational processes like recruiting, hiring and progression. Inclusion is the environment and how every employee experiences the workplace. Diversity and inclusion have proven to help employees feel more included and psychologically secure.

Unconscious biases at work can be difficult to overcome. Therefore, teams need to use bias-reducing hiring practices, provide generous parental leave, ensure equitable pay, host unconscious bias training sessions and most importantly, build an inclusive culture.

Purpose at Work

A successful and engaged team comprises of employees who have a sense of purpose. Each role exists for a reason, and when employees understand the impact of their effort, it makes it easy to work towards the goals.

Having a sense of purpose is related to various other advantages like longer lifespan, better flexibilities, reduce time in medical care and better sleep.
