For real engagement, show employees where they fit in

For real engagement, show employees where they fit in
With poor employee engagement tied to turnover and low productivity, companies are searching for ways to help workers feel they belong in an organization. From offering team activities to creating workspaces that mimic a home environment, organizations are working to ensure that employees feel they're a valued part of the company and are key to its success. This strategy is no recent invention, however. When John F. Kennedy was visiting the NASA space center in the 1960s, he saw a janitor working and asked what he was doing, as Steve Van Valin, founder, and CEO of Culturology retells the familiar story. Broom in hand, the janitor proudly replied, "I'm helping put a man on the moon." The janitor knew that every pile of dust he swept and every bag of trash he tossed brought a rocket closer to launch. The janitor saw the connection that his job had to the facility’s purpose, Van Valin said. He was engaged because he understood how he was contributing to the organization's larger goals.
