What Engaged Employees Do Differently

The concept of Employee Engagement has become increasingly propagated in our culture, and yet with many companies it is built on empty promises and a lack of substance.

To be effective, employee engagement should focus on enabling and motivating talent with both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards that are personalized for each individual employee.  When you get it right, employee engagement can create decades of loyalty, increased productivity and exceptional customer experiences.

Here are the top things that your engaged employees will do differently:

  • They seek ongoing feedback.
  • They want to continuously grow their skills and competencies.
  • They seek out opportunities to further develop within the organization.
  • They communicate openly and authentically with their leaders and colleagues.
  • They look for ways to improve processes and share that with senior leadership.
  • They exceed goals and expectations.
  • They refers others (as both colleagues and customers).

Your employees want to be co-creators in their engagement and development. The above are some of the ways to identify those highly engaged employees in your organization.

If you’re employees aren’t exhibiting most of the characteristics above, you should stop and examine how you can adjust your employee engagement program to better foster a culture of engagement.  If your employees aren’t exhibiting ALL of the characteristics above, you should think about how you can use your engagement program to personalize engagement for each individual to sustain high performance in all these areas.
