This article focuses on strategies for solving employee engagement problems. Some of these strategies include finding activities that take employees out of their typical environment, enlisting senior staff to act as liaisons for leadership, questioning employees and listening to their responses, committing to acting on feedback, treating employees like customers, and conducting interviews with employees before they leave to proactively address potential issues. The article also suggests that organizations should conduct their own internal analyses into best practices; establish a culture of trust with employees; gather information from employees first hand; give employees the tools and skills they need to thrive; promote and behave in ways that support the organization’s mission, values, and vision; encourage open and safe conversations; and be honest regarding employee engagement issues and strategies.
