Why Train Managers and Leaders in Engaging and Motivating Employees?
The benefits of employee engagement and motivation for a company are many.
Engaged employees (according to William Kahn who provided a definition of employee engagement in the 1990s, following extensive research on the topic) express themselves at work cognitively, emotionally, and physically. This means that they put their mind, heart, and soul into what they do.
As a result, having an engaged workforce is a great asset for a company, as these individuals are enthusiastic about what they do, are likely to go the extra mile, and are good ambassadors for a company.
Engaged employees are also likely to have high levels of commitment to a company (i.e., to be loyal and less likely to leave) and tend to experience high levels of job satisfaction (i.e., to be happy with their job or career).
So, the benefits for a company of having engaged employees include:
- Higher productivity
- Better customer experience
- Lower staff turnover
- Better performance
- More workplace innovation (as engaged employees tend to be creative and to problem-solve)
- Lower absence rate
- Happier and healthier staff
- Increased profit
Employee motivation is different from engagement. Motivation is the reason why you do something, it is what pushes you to act. Engagement instead is how you do something, with how much focus, vigor, and energy.
However, motivation and engagement go hand in hand, as an engaged employee is also motivated and some of the causes of engagement and motivation overlap.
So, these employee engagement training course materials are designed to help managers become good motivators and understand how to increase engagement.
Why Should You, as a Trainer, Teach Workshops on Employee Engagement and Motivation
Employee engagement is a fast-growing trend in leadership and management training.
This is because companies try to hold on to the employees they have to retain skills and knowledge, things that it takes time and money to build.
The trend, nowadays, is to create a workplace in which employees are happy to work and in which they feel valued.
Other training courses that you can offer to help companies develop an engaging workplace include:
- Inclusive Leadership
- Building Resilience in the Workplace
- Emotional Intelligence at Work
- Psychological Safety in the Workplace
