Five ways to increase staff engagement (and retention)

There’s a clear correlation between an engaged workforce and staff retention. Therefore, it makes perfect sense for businesses to ensure they are doing everything they can to increase staff engagement.

In this post, we’ll detail five ways that you can increase engagement within your business.

  1. Embrace Automation

Automation has become increasingly popular in the workplace over the last decade and it is predicted to be a major force for enhancing staff engagement in 2023. With digital tools like Rotify, you can easily create and manage staff rotas with minimal effort, freeing up time for more meaningful interactions with your employees. Automating mundane tasks like creating rotas will allow you to focus on leveraging technology for improving employee engagement such as providing feedback and recognition.

  1. Encourage Digital Learning

With technology being so widely used today, it is important to ensure that your employees are up-to-date on the latest trends and skills needed in their roles. Investing in digital learning platforms such as online courses and webinars will help keep them motivated while also helping to improve their job performance and morale. By providing access to resources that help them stay ahead of the curve, they will feel valued, appreciated, and engaged with their work.

  1. Leverage Gamification

One way to get employees engaged is by using gamification in the workplace. This involves applying elements of game play such as rewards, levels, leaderboards, etc., into workplace activities like eLearning or performance tracking systems so that employees have fun while learning new skills or completing tasks efficiently. Gamification encourages friendly competition among colleagues which helps boost productivity while also giving an exciting edge to mundane corporate processes which keeps employees interested and motivated over time.

  1. Enable Social Collaboration

Technology can be used to foster social collaboration amongst colleagues which improves team cohesion and drives employee engagement within an organisation greatly.

Platforms like Slack or Microsoft Teams enable easy communication between co-workers so that they can quickly connect with each other from different locations whenever necessary without having to take too much time out of their daily schedules or disrupting workflow due to inefficient communication methods such as emails or phone calls.

  1. Make Use of Wearable Technology

Wearable technology has been gaining momentum over the past couple of years with fitness trackers becoming popularly used by many people around the world today including businesses owners who want to track their employees’ physical wellbeing during work hours.

By offering wearables such as Apple Watch or Fitbit devices at subsidised cost or even free to staff members, employers can provide an incentive for them while also collecting data related to employee health which would help make informed decisions when it comes to maintaining a healthy workforce overall in order for them be more productive at work and engaged throughout 2023!
