How to Engage Employees in the Digital Age

If you want your business to succeed and become wildly productive, you need to engage your employees. But in the digital age, older generations are having trouble getting through to millennials.

In order for your business to come out on top in productivity, improve company performance, carry out business strategies, and develop roles within the company, employee engagement is essential. But as many employers from older generations are coming to find out, getting through to millennials can be a challenge. But fear not! We are here to offer some helpful tips on how to engage employees in the digital age.

What engages employees?

Your company’s success is riding on your ability to engage employees. Company loyalty is a thing of the past–if employees get a better offer they’re going to take it. So engaging and retaining valuable employees is crucial on the bottom line of your organization.

The new workforce expects to be able to separate their work life and their personal life. Giving them more vacation time, the option to work from home regularly, and flexible hours can definitely engage and reduce employee turn-over.

Employees in the digital age also want to know they have a purpose. One way you can help drive home this point is by having a seminar or meeting to help employees understand where their individual roles lie and how their hard work contributes to the big picture. Without a purpose or reinforcement, the employee may not see the point in working there and start looking for employment elsewhere.

Reliance on humans, not technology, helps engage employees in the digital age. Those who did not understand that technology is to complement, not replace, made the error of depending on technology to increase productivity. Make sure that your employees know that productivity still relies on them and that technology is merely the tool through which they reach success.

  • “When we want develop partnerships with vendors, the deciding factor is always based on a single question…Do they pick up their phone? At Risk Management, they pick up their phone. In the indoor trampoline park industry, we have dealt with several insurance agencies that were always more concerned about their commission, not building a business relationship or serving our needs. On more than one occasion, Risk Management has stepped in and helped us with carrier/policies issues that the incumbent agencies had dropped the ball on. There was no financial reward for Risk Management in these situations, they see a problem and help fix it. They just do business the right way. Steve Young and his team at Risk Management represent us, not the carrier. We highly recommend Risk Management.”
