Employee engagement is more than just a buzzword. It could mean the difference between small business success and failure. With Gallup reporting 70 percent of US workers are not engaged, it’s a problem entrepreneurs need to solve if they hope to compete in today’s cut-throat marketplace. Here are eight ways to drive stronger employee engagement with training.
1. Establish a goal-oriented workplace:
Your team need a clear understanding of what your organization is working to achieve in order to engage with the vision. A strategic training program should train workers with clear goals in mind—and reward them for success.
2. Foster a team mentality:
Employees have to work with the same people all day every day. They want a sense of belonging and camaraderie. Training in groups instead of individually helps build a team mentality by allowing employees to share, collaborate and offer feedback on goals.
