Employees are on the frontlines of your company. An understanding of what their wants and needs will help foster their growth into stronger assets for your organization. According to Jeff Fermin, an entrepreneur and a contributor to Huffington Post, 83% of employees feel that they don’t have an engaging employment brand.
So how then do we increase our employee engagement?
We accomplish this through putting employees first.
The first step in engaging with your employees is having open communication with management and your employees. By providing this type of work environment, you allow your employees to become leaders within your organization. According to John Hall, a contributor of Forbes:
