As another year comes to an end, it’s a great time to reflect on the things you’ve achieved over the past 12 months. How many of your goals have you achieved? How have you made an impact on your organisation? How far have you and your team come since this time last year?
When we sit down and take stock of the great achievements of the past year, we realise that it really is time to celebrate. Employee Engagement has made an impact on thousands of organisations in 2013, and is more widely accepted and appreciated as an important element of business success than ever before. Engage for Success are celebrating the first anniversary of their website launch, and you can take a look at the great achievements they’ve made in 2013 here.
It goes without saying that 2014 will be another great year for employee engagement, with hundreds of organisations realising that they need to create successful employee engagement to improve their business performance. But where do these organisations begin?
Creating successful employee engagement can be a daunting task. Trying to find a starting point for your engagement programme, alongside completing your daily work and managing a team, can be hugely overwhelming. Trying to be in ten places at once can sabotage your engagement plans – if you want to make engagement a focus in 2014, you’ll need to ensure you’re starting in the right place to start making an impact straight away.
At People Lab, we’re really passionate about helping to create great places to work. We really do love what we do, and we think it’s important that the people working in an organisation feel the same about their own work. We combine our unique approach to employee engagement with a fantastic team of practitioners who truly live and breathe what we do – and that’s why we achieve such brilliant results for a range of clients.
One of our most popular products is the People Managers Toolkit. This DIY approach to employee engagement provides you with a range of practical tools, techniques and tips, enabling you to improve employee engagement with your team – at your own pace. Using the toolkit, you’ll begin your journey from seeing engagement as a survey led, tick–box exercise (transactional engagement) to something which is ongoing and integrated into the way you manage and lead your team (transformational engagement).
The toolkit will help you, as a People Manager, to understand the crucial role YOU play in improving engagement with your team.
The toolkit has been successfully used with over 100 organisations to improve their people manager capability in engagement. Using the toolkit, companies such as Rolls Royce, Barclays, E.ON, Everest and ELEXON have improved their employee engagement.
