A quick Google search and you’ll find dozens of articles about how to improve your company’s employee experience.
You might find a handful of good ideas on how to implement them, but most of them are geared towards small businesses, and don’t provide the broadest guidance.
So what should businesses do to improve their employee experience?
To get a clearer idea of how employees are performing, we asked a panel of experts from the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. to share their thoughts.
Here are some of the key points we learned from their feedback:Business leaders should create a “work life balance” by having employees who are comfortable at work.
Businesses are more likely to keep their employees engaged when they have an abundance of activities available.
This can be achieved by providing employees with more time to work or meeting their daily tasks with other employees.
In order to be effective at improving employee engagement, businesses need to be aware of employee motivation.
Business leaders should also understand that employees who have higher levels of stress and depression are more prone to burnout and burnout-related injuries.
This may mean they have a higher likelihood of quitting or dropping out, which can lead to employee burnout.
If employees have higher level of stress or depression, they are more susceptible to burnouts and injuries, and these injuries are linked to the number of hours worked.
So businesses need the following things in order to have employees who want to work:Be aware of the type of activities employees enjoy.
The more time employees are able to spend on them, the better they will perform and the more they will enjoy their work.
Provide the right resources to help employees stay engaged.
For example, provide free snacks, free breakfasts, free lunches, and the ability to take breaks to get extra work done.
Employees can also benefit from the “business maker” training that McKinsey recommends.
This training provides business leaders with a step-by-step process for how to create an effective employee engagement program.
This training can be done in either a corporate office or on-site.
Business leaders need to understand the role of HR in managing employee engagement.
HR has a direct impact on employee engagement and morale.
For instance, the HR Director should be able to take action to ensure employees are engaging with the business and are motivated to work.
The HR Director must be able, however, to monitor employee engagement as well as the HR process.
HR can also be responsible for ensuring employees are properly briefed on HR procedures and expectations, and can have a hand in making sure HR processes are consistent with business requirements.
These include having HR employees attend regularly to provide training and feedback, as well being involved in employee onboarding and training, as appropriate.
