What is Employee Engagement?
The concept of employee engagement in human resources (HR) refers to how enthusiastic and committed an employee is to their work. Employees who are engaged are concerned about their jobs and the success of the organization and believe that their contributions are meaningful.
Understanding Employee Engagement
Given its obvious connections to employees ’ job satisfaction morale, work engagement can be crucial to a company's success. Engagement among employees can only be established and sustained via effective communication. Employees who are engaged are more effective and perform better.
Appreciate people who are out there by recognizing them and rewarding them.
Other tactics include attempting to give workers a sense of worth and respect, as well as a sense that their opinions are being acknowledged and understood. Employees who are engaged in their job feel that it is important, that their managers value and support them, and that they've been given responsibility for the company's success.
Hence, Engagement being such a crucial part of the organizational growth, Being an HR it is important to consider the hierarchy of engagement of the organization for it’s flourishing & consistent growth.
What do we understand by hierarchy of engagement ?
To some extent, hierarchy of organization/employee engagement is inter-connected with Maslow's theory of needs. In his 1943 article "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review, Abraham Maslow put forth his theory known as "Maslow's hierarchy of needs." Maslow classified the needs that humans need as follows.
- Physiological needs
- Safety needs
- Love and belonging needs
- Esteem needs
“ Engaged employees often develop an emotional connection to their job and company, and will be focused on working toward their organization's goals. Despite the fact that businesses may interpret employee engagement to suit their own needs.
Maslow's Hierarchy And Employee Engagement
As you can see from Maslow's concept, each of the five needs are important and are meant to chart the course of a person's development.
The same notion can be used to comprehend employee engagement and the importance of maintaining hierarchy levels.
From the perspective of employee engagement, Maslow's theory is pertinent. Using this psychoanalytic perspective to discuss employee engagement is intriguing.
But is this theory still relevant and applicable in 2022 when the global workforce is going through a crisis due to the COVID19 pandemic?
- Since I work in HR, I have come up with a few ideas to deal with the hierarchy of employee involvement after the epidemic.
- Encourage individuals to lead healthy lifestyles via corporate health applications, employee support programmes, and digital mental wellness solutions.
- Holding brief, informal sessions with the staff and constantly communicating in a generic way.
- Digital platforms for rewards and recognition must be implemented immediately to address this problem. For employees who work remotely, the digital recognition tool raises their spirits and maintains the feedback culture. And giving people who are at work baskets and treats.
- Employers can encourage self-actualization by giving remote employees access to online learning resources. Strong teamwork and communication tools are also essential for meeting this need.
We at Lucent Innovation try to implement this in order to be there for our team emotionally as well as promote a healthy work life balance. We have tried to become more global, more diverse, and made a great place to work by challenging the team to grow with us.
