Is your work culture centered around employee competition or employee connection? There are four main tenets of engaging with your employees that you can follow to ensure that they are getting the most out of their work environment, along with 8 key steps you can take to put them into action.

Every organization must ask this one simple question:

 

“Are we building our work culture around employee competition or employee connection?”

 

You can’t have both.

 

If we are building a culture around employee competition, then it is OK to continue putting a major emphasis on efficiency, contribution, and consistency. On the other hand, if we are building a culture around employee connection, then we need to start putting a much bigger emphasis on measuring ‘Belonging’ and how everyone supports each others’ unique individual strengths.

Doing this opens the door for more effective communication and the ability to accomplish company objectives in a more focused and unified manner companywide.
