Engaging the Workforce

An engaged workforce is a productive one. Learn to boost employee engagement, productivity, and loyalty.

Research shows only 13% of America’s workforce feel engaged at their jobs. This shocking statistic accurately portrays the disconnect between employees and their roles. If employees aren’t engaged, there’s a good chance it’s because their role doesn’t align with their personality traits and motivators. Our Proscan assessment reveals employee behaviors so you can place them in the best fitting job possible, resulting in a happier more engaged workforce.

Employees who are invested in their jobs increase retention, productivity, loyalty, enhance customer experience, and improve company reputation. With a multitude of benefits, employee engagement is worth the time investment.

Organizations can improve engagement through management. People leave managers, not companies. The Gallup Employee Engagement survey found 50% of Americans have at some point quit a job because of their manager. Leaders who set an example by embodying corporate values and working alongside employees inspire and motivate others. When organizations clearly communicate strategy and goals, employees feel involved in growth and success.

Having honest and clear communication is key to improving engagement. Employees left in the dark become disconnected and eventually leave. Keep an eye out for employees performing well and have a system in place to reward them. Focus on career growth and development for each employee, solidifying their role in the company as it grows.

Take the time to listen and learn about their interests, both in their career and lives. Building a relationship with your team increases loyalty and motivation to help the company succeed. Listen to feedback and apply their suggestions where you can.

Provide training to help workers grow their skill set and develop their career. By offering training and coaching, employees have a clear idea what’s needed to be successful.

A major key to employee engagement is understanding motivations and behaviors. This information is available in our Proscan assessment. The assessment should be given to every employee and potential hire to clearly outline their drives, traits, and stressors. Administer this test regularly to identify when employees are under stress or experiencing conflict. Adapting behavior – when someone feels the need to change themselves to fit their environment – is a clear sign of stress or conflict. If the stress is related to work, do what you can to alleviate the issue to create a productive work environment.

Our PDP certification program teaches you to leverage this information into actionable items and goals. PDP certified porfessionals continually improve their organization by utilizing this knowledge to create positive change in the workplace. Know Your Talents also offers: a PDP Mentor Certification course, Team Impact and Leadership Impact workshops,and coaching alongside the Proscan Workshop.

Utilize the behavior present in your organization today!
