As a business, you might be finding it hard yourself. It may not be possible to offer salary rises that keep pace with inflation.
And at the same time you might be asking more of your people, or making changes to the workplace that are hard for some to adjust to.
The last thing you want is to lose good people just when you need everyone firing on all cylinders. That’s why some of the most effective engagement strategies right now involve relieving the stress and tedium of repetitive tasks, and removing workplace frustration – with the added benefit that you become more efficient in the process.
Most businesses now offer some form of remote working. But it’s common for people to feel ‘left out in the cold’ if it’s not easy for them to keep communication channels open. Making team interactions seamless can make a big difference to the happiness of your people – and even to your customers.
How do you do this? Start with better collaboration tools. They can improve project management, strengthen relationships, reduce wasted time, and even encourage better feedback. Technology can also automate dull and repetitive tasks. No-one’s going to complain about that, and faster working will provide a productivity boost.
When you respond to your people’s frustrations by providing the right tools, they’ll feel listened to and valued. And if they feel that they’re getting things done, they’ll become more engaged and more motivated.
There’s an overwhelming range of tools available that often make bold claims about their ability to transform your business.
