Employee engagement is a pivotal element of companies’ productivity and success.
Yet, a whopping 70% of employee engagement directly hinges on their manager. This figure is eye-opening when considering that 66% of managers struggle to manage their teams, and nearly 50% of departing employees cite their manager as their number one reason to do so.
This underscores the critical need for companies to foster a robust, positive, and efficient managerial culture. It's why numerous organizations have opted for Popwork, an all-in-one platform dedicated to transforming management and, consequently, elevating team engagement across the organization.
Key rituals to foster engagement in your company
👉 1:1 Meetings: Bolstering the Manager-Employee Relationship
These individual meetings are pivotal for understanding each person’s unique needs, expectations, and challenges.
To facilitate regular and impactful 1:1 meetings, companies like Welcome to the Jungle, Avisia, or Engie rely on Popwork. This platform aids in automating the scheduling, preparation, and follow up of these interactions between managers and employees. HR departments can tailor the frequency and personalize the ritual to suit their company's culture.
👉 Pulse Checks: Assessing Satisfaction and Engagement Levels
Pulse checks serve as a means to gauge team engagement in an agile and unobtrusive manner. Regular feedback enables early identification of potential issues and fosters a culture of transparency.
In practice, to help employees prepare 1:1 meetings, Popwork asks two questions, offering insights into their mood and workload. This data is subsequently accessible to both the manager and HR through the Popwork Company dashboard.
👉 Coaching Sessions – Encouraging Professional Growth
Coaching sessions, typically held quarterly, semi-annually, or annually, are dedicated to individual support. They provide an opportunity to review past achievements, progress, training needs, etc. These sessions empower managers to actively guide their employees' professional growth by identifying areas for improvement and suggesting tailored solutions.
