Employe Engagement: Why We Need to Treat Employees More Like Smart Phones

Get Smart with Your Employees

Samsung Phone

Don’t get the title of this post wrong. I am not suggesting we depersonalize employees and treat them like objects. What I am suggesting is we treat employees as well as most of us treat our smart phone.

Here is what I mean:

  • We never get too far away from our phone.
  • We make ourselves available to our phone almost all the time.
  • We gaze at the screen with a powerful focus.
  • We recharge our phone every day.
  • We rely on our phone.

So here are the 5 employee engagement lessons:

  1. stay close to your employees
  2. make yourself available,
  3. really look at your employees many times throughout the day,
  4. charge employees up each day,
  5. rely on your employees.
