Best Practices for Employee Engagement

The Temkin Group's recent Employee Engagement Benchmark Study 2013 highlights trends in employee engagement on the basis of numerous factors. Within the factors, communication and enablement emerge as key themes. Staying within the Temkin definition of employee engagement, what technology strategies can be followed to deliver an engaging employee experience?

  • Context through clear mission. Supplying a clear organizational objective is critical to enabling the greatest return on employee efforts. A defined mission acts as a compass to guide decision-making, shaping the context of information and processes with which an employee engages.
  • Knowledge management for line of business objectives. Within a given line of business, are your key processes appropriately illustrated to eliminate dependencies on tacit knowledge? Enable standardization and employee education by ensuring that contribution and governance models are established for the knowledge management capabilities that can supply this information.
  • Addressing the “me” factor. Making content employee-centric can allow an organization to mitigate its size—enabling a smaller company experience that can drive higher engagement. Any information-delivery channel or repository should be implemented with the intent of role-based content delivery, driving personalized views of processes and information.
  • Employee experience management. Just as a customer journey might be mapped across various touch points, a similar exercise can be carried out around employee experience. Capture feedback to gain an understanding of employee experience—and you’ll be equipped to refine processes, deliver a better experience, alleviate previously unknown challenges, and strengthen engagement through recognition from peers and management.
