This Episode: Engagement Strategies For A Hybrid World
One of the biggest challenges that leaders and HR professionals face in this new hybrid world, is the issue of how to ensure that our people remain engaged from a distance. In this episode, Lucinda talks you through a variety of invaluable engagement strategies designed to make sure this can be achieved.
- The definition of engagement is disputed, with many wondering if it is a process or an output. But the key to engagement is the recognition that it is important.
- Engagement needs to be as individualised as possible. We must try to think of it less as a one-size-fits-all process, and encourage managers to personalise where possible.
- Engagement is driven by some key drivers: having a supportive manager, clarity of role and alignment with strategic purpose, ongoing conversations with timely feedback, trust, autonomy and empowerment, opportunities to learn and grow, level of fit or belonging, regular strength based conversations, or natural own conscious state.
- The lack office environments has led to a decline in the relationships that we used to foster in a real world environment. We need to encourage growth in this area.
