According to a recent Government Executive article, the ways that employees view their organization and its leadership are VERY important. This can help drive productivity and create a positive culture. If a bad taste is left in employees mouths, they will more than likely not be interested in anything more than receiving their paychecks. To read the Government Executive article, click here.
Summit Group is an expert in engaging employees. Here are some of the tactics that are used on a regular basis here at Summit.
- Quarterly meetings. Leadership presents company growth, encourages successes, and discusses needs for improvement. Employees are given awards at this meeting.
- Peer-to-peer and manager recognition. Peers and managers can recognize others for their good work and support. They are awarded points, which can be redeemed for merchandise and gift cards.
- Periodic “huddles.” Employees, including managers, are invited periodically to meet and enjoy food and/or drinks to hear company updates and mingle.
- Charitable cause support. Employees are encouraged to let the rest of the company know about causes that are important to them, in order to further raise money or awareness.
- Annual wellness week. Activities take place at each site – ranging from health screenings to chair massages to onsite boot camps.
- Annual employee appreciation week. Fun activities are planned for employees, where they and their managers can interact together by just having fun!
