The economy is warming up and there are lots of workers thinking about quitting their current job and going somewhere else. Are your managers and supervisors taking care of their people? Are they keeping them motivated and engaged with their jobs?
Employee engagement is critical in keeping the workforce attentive, motivated and satisfied with their jobs. As I have said in my speeches and writings, the relationship between the individual and his/her manager is critical. Here are 11 questions every manager should know about the people working for them.
1. What would cause you to take another job with another company tomorrow?
2. When do you feel most appreciated for what you do?
3. What are you overdue for?
4. What prevents you from doing your best?
5. Do you have the materials and equipment you need to do your work right?
6. What strengths and skills do you have our team can use?
7. In the last six months, have you had opportunities to learn and grow at work?
8. What opportunities can we provide to assume greater responsibility, autonomy or achieve greater visibility?
9. Does your manager, or someone at work, seem to care about you as a person?
11. Does the mission/purpose of your organization make you feel your job is important?
