In today’s time, the workplace is changing. The traditional 9-5 workday is no longer the norm. Employees are demanding more flexibility and autonomy in their work schedules, and employers are responding to these demands with a new generation of workplace policies.
But what does this mean for the future of work? And how can you keep your team engaged and happy at work?
Below are three ways to keep your team engaged and happy at work, as well as some of the benefits that come from a happier workforce.
Recognise your team’s efforts.
Recognising the efforts of your team members will make them feel appreciated and valued. You can do this by recognising their achievements and successes, giving them a pat on the back, providing them feedback and sharing the credit with them
Give them autonomy.
Studies have found that the most engaged employees are those who feel they have autonomy. They are able to do their work in a way that is best for them and their team. Autonomy is not just about the freedom to make decisions, but also about having control over how you do your work.
Make them feel valued by giving them feedback and recognition for the work they do.
One of the most effective ways to make your team feel valued is by giving them feedback and recognition for the work they do.
Feedback can be done in a variety of ways, such as giving praise, providing constructive criticism, or asking for their opinion on something. Feedback should be given in person whenever possible so that it can be done in a personal way and not through email or text message.
Recognition can be done in a variety of ways, such as giving public praise, providing public recognition, or thanking them publicly for their contributions.
