Korn Ferry: Increasing Employee Engagement
In this article, Korn Ferry looks at the importance of employee engagement and the difficulties leaders face in increasing it. Not only will it increase production, but engaged workers who are passionate about their jobs elevate the organization itself. Mark Royal, senior principal for Korn Ferry Hay Group, points out that self-motivation is relied on too much by organizations and offers the idea that creating the right form of motivation for employees will heighten engagement.
Korn Ferry suggests the following tactics for increasing engagement:
- Equate organizational success to individual success.
- Give employees challenging, interesting work.
- Remove institutional barriers or redesign workflow.
