How to Stay Engaged With Your Employees

Your employees are valuable people in your business because of the work they do. For this reason, it is important that you stay engaged with them. To stay engaged with your employees you can leave your door open, talk with them directly, and promote transparency.

Leave Your Door Open

Having an open-door policy is important in staying engaged with your employees. Your open door allows you to talk with your employees who will tell you about their concerns. When your employees voice concerns, you can give a timely response to address them. Your open-door policy can give you important insights through having interactions. You will also be able to form important relationships with your employees. Getting to know your employees and having them get to know you will help to build trust, loyalty, and open communication channels that can better your company.

Talk With Them Directly

Talking with your employees directly is the most important way to get to know them. Conversations with them can happen for many reasons, both informal and informal. Both types of conversations need to occur to build working relationships with your employees. You can talk with them by having formal 1-1 meetings with them. You can observe and engage with your employees by completing a Gemba walk at your workplace. In any interaction, you should take the time to get to know them personally and remember important details about them. When you do this, you build a good relationship with them and in turn, they will feel appreciated and will respect you.

Promote Transparency

Transparency is an important part of being engaged with your employees. Transparency allows your employees to build trust in you and your company’s leadership. Trust helps your employees feel like they are valued. You should also involve your employees in efforts in the company. Involve them in the conversations about growth, strategy, and any setbacks that occur. This transparency will let your employees know that they can count on you.
