Building Engagement from Within

with Chris Jarvis and Angela Parker, co-founders, Realized Worth

An organization’s journey toward corporate social responsibility is either propelled or paralyzed by employees. What does it take to get an entire employee team on board? Are there best practices or practical steps that can garner employee engagement as your business works for real and long-term social impacts?

We believe the answer is “Yes.”

Join us as we explore: How to motivate your employees to not only embrace, but champion your organization’s CSR efforts.

  1. It’s my strong belief that recognition is the most important thing if you want to keep your employees engaged. One of the best ways to do so is to show them that their work is meaningful and that it has some tangible results. I don’t understand why employee engagement has been ignored by so many organizations and employers for such a long time. Only now it’s beginning to dawn on some of them how strongly it’s connected to having satisfied customers and thus making more profit. In my opinion one of the most important ways to engage employees is to show them the progress that the company is making. There’s nothing that puts me off more than a dull and steady job. You would be surprised but unhappiness in the workplace where progress means nothing is often connected to health problems. According to various surveys, people with low-paying jobs and with few possibilities to make progress have a higher risk of heart disease than those who feel satisfied in their careers. I just recently read that only a small number of employees are happy with their working environment which results in increasing importance being placed on different wellness programs and even a workplace exercise regimen to increase productivity and develop a more positive attitude.
