Employee Engagement Activities
Employee engagement activities need to be something that works for a high percentage of employees, because you will never get something that will work for everybody. Whether it’s going to be a holiday party, a bowling activity night, etc. There are so many different things that you can do as employee engagement activities.
I used to work for Circuit City back in the early 1980’s. That was when Circuit City was closed on Tuesdays, corporate-wide. It was their slowest day of the week so there was no reason to open up the store. Once a year, the company had this enormous party for the employees in the region on a Tuesday as an engagement activity.
Whether it’s a party, all-hands meetings with recognition, or healthy competition, do things that are going to engage employees and give them a sense of belonging and appreciation. Employee engagement is about raising everyone up, increasing morale and encouraging comradeship.
