The digital age allows businesses to engage on a global scale, but can it promote high levels of workforce engagement?
The answer is yes. Yes, it can, but it must be taken advantage of in the correct environment.
Creating an environment that optimises human engagement will emphasise the importance of keeping your humanity.
Companies everywhere are under a tremendous amount of pressure to perform; competition is at every corner. Employee satisfaction, whereby employees are content with their working environment, is simply not enough. Companies need to ensure that their colleagues are engaged, and motivated to be the very best that they can be.
Passionate and enthusiastic persons must be recognised, and valued, just as much as the technology that they are using. It is people that underpin success in a world that continues to reinvent itself. Verbal communication is therefore essential.
Businesses have to remember that face to face meetings and conversations between leaders and employees maximises performance. A great supervisor must invest time in their team members, as well as aid their professional development.
Training to use and understand new technologies is essential, but taking time to promote positive relationships in your workplace is also beneficial.
Invest energy in the people on your team and they will be invested in success.
Technology connects people and businesses to each other in ways that have previously been impossible, but in doing so it has created a tension between an individual and a collective existence.
A shared stream of consciousness has been produced, as a direct result of progressive technological advancements. Businesses are defined by others, actions are anticipated by competitors. Business leaders and team supervisors must keep hold of their autonomy and stand out from the ‘noise’ made by the digital revolution.
Employees need to be able to trust in strong leaders, especially in times of high change. Leaders need to both utilise the data that the digital age should offer, as well as embrace the complexities of human emotion. Co-workers must be spoken to and treated as individuals.
