In managing employees “engagement” is important to the success of the company. Even though the term is being bounced around freely, the truth is it’s a powerful way to manage teams. What does “engagement” mean? Employees that are fully present to the success of the company produce results. Managers can keep the employees busy, though it doesn’t mean they are engaged. So how do you get an employee fully present?
For an employee to be engaged, they need to be part of the decision making process. Yes, initially it is absorbs alot of your time, though when a manager embraces employees’ contributions in the decision making process, they are more involved and hence more invested in the results.
