Employee engagement can mean a lot of different things, but for Lifesize Chief People Officer Gayle Wiley, it’s defined as how much passion you have for your job, the emotional commitment you feel for your organization and what the company’s goals mean to you. The truth is, engaged people are motivated and are capable of doing extraordinary work. They go above and beyond their call of duty, and it doesn’t go unnoticed.
In this episode of Lifesize Live!, we sat down with Gayle as she shared some tips and tricks on how to keep a global workforce engaged, even if those offices might be across the world.
When it comes to creating an engaged workforce, the first step is to recruit people who not only align with the company culture and have the right skill set, but also those who work and play well together. It’s also important to have strong company values because that’s what creates an organization’s personality.
Another important factor in making sure that employees are engaged is having strong leaders to guide them. From asking the right questions and truly caring about what they want to gain from your company to recognizing great work ethic and giving them roles that leverage their personal strengths, all contribute to triggering company loyalty and engagement. All in all, what keeps an organization’s workforce engaged and passionate about the work they are doing is making sure their voices are being heard, they are constantly given the opportunity to learn and grow, and they are immersed in a company culture that helps them do their best.
