Businesses, like your organization , know that attracting and retaining top talent is essential to a business’s livelihood — which is why employee engagement has become increasingly important.
How do you know employees are engaged in their work? You should feel a buzz in the workplace, as employees bring energy to their jobs and feel personally involved in the company’s wins and setbacks. Not only are engaged employees motivated, but they’re also focused and engrossed in their work tasks, which leads them to take ownership of their jobs. In doing so, they become dedicated to their roles and your company.
Building employee engagement (and retention) starts from their first day at the office, when you introduce them to your company’s culture through sharing the company’s policies and procedures. A company’s policies give employees an immediate sense of what the company stands for — its values, business ethics and personality. In turn, sound policies reassure employees, giving them the confidence and security to work to their full potential.
By involving employees in the policy creation, review and renewal process, you give your employees a stake in the company’s growth and direction — you show them that their opinions matter, allow them to help drive who the company wants to be and encourage participation — and thus increase employee engagement.
How can you easily include your employees in the policy management process?
While it may seem like asking more employees to get involved in the policy management process would initially slow or bottleneck the system, their participation doesn’t necessarily make the process any less efficient. By automating your policy management system with ConvergePoint’s Policy Management Software, you streamline your company’s current system, while encouraging employee engagement and giving employees greater access to company policies.
Policy Management Software enables you to create automated workflows, ensuring designated employees are cued to create, review and approve policies. Policies are kept in one central document repository so employees can easily access and quickly find information they’re looking for. The software also automates distribution and employee acknowledgment of policies, ensuring employees receive email notification when a new policy is ready to be reviewed and are tested to ensure they’ve read and understood the policy.
