While dealing with a recruitment agency, businesses are often asked what they do for their employee engagement. While some businesses have a few tried and true techniques in place, others need to boost their efforts. One of these approaches is with a lean program. While more of a philosophy, this approach can help a business to better engage their employees and to set themselves up for success.
With a structured approach, you are able to implement changes in the organization that help to boost engagement. This can translate to more profitability, a better focus on the customers, and having employees who look forward to coming into work.
With the lean program, managers trust their employees, and that trust is returned. Instead of policing the staff, there are team-building exercises that promote teams working together, which ultimately have people take on individual leadership roles, self-managing themselves and handling their own compliance.
Employees also feel like they have made a difference in this approach. They can see the value of their jobs and don’t feel like they have wasted 8 hours and have nothing to show for it. This leaves them feeling empowered and driven to come back in the next day.
That means when you incorporate the lean program, you are reducing the amount of cycle time your business has. That means employees are engaged faster and there is a faster improvement in morale. This carries over to the building of trust between the general workforce in the company and those in management roles. Above all, you’ll have a committed team that you can always turn to.
