Getting people excited about work starts with clarity of purpose and strategy.
By connecting goals and actions from the bottom to the top, employees know what they’re working toward. An intranet is a support tool to increase engagement through company news, blogging, goal setting, celebrations, employee recognition, job opportunities and promotions, but employees ultimately must motivate themselves.
From the employer’s perspective, the biggest responsibility is hiring the right people and then providing encouragement, ownership and opportunities to learn.
On the employee side, here are five ways to stay engaged at work:
1. Know your strengths.
Look for opportunities in the workplace where your skill sets match well. Ideally, you want to highlight specific strengths on your employee profile and showcase how you’ve used them to ensure you end up where you can thrive.
2. Win together.
