Engaging employees remains the critical ingredient of how companies manage the diverse economic conditions facing their organizations today. Why not start with an atypical question in solving the engagement equation – not “what should we do to engage employees?” but “what do employees need in order to be engaged?

In this incredible time of competing pressures – demand for profitable growth, financial market volatility, political uncertainty, global shifts in workforce demographics and a rapidly shifting technology – a finer point must be put on that core engagement question. Leaders must ask themselves not only “what do employees need in order to be engaged?” but also “what behaviors are we asking them to engage in?”

Torben,

On the Supervisor part it also works if you allow a team to divide the tasks themselves. Instead of the supervisor doing it. This can give more commitment and dedication to complete the job at hand. You need to have a certain maturity level in the team but in this way you can create a greater responsibility within the team and more engagement.

kind regards,

Marcel
