easy as stocking healthy snacks in your
company refrigerator for employees to
turn to if need be throughout the day,
as every little step towards wellness
will serve to improve levels of engagement in your organization.
7. Clarify Goals and
Responsibilities
Every employee has a set of goals
and responsibilities they need to work
on. One of the biggest contributing
factors to falling engagement levels,
is the confusion over what one's role
actually is.
It doesn't take poor management
for issues such as this to occur, either.
(Though usually it is due to poor
management.)
Keep in mind that sometimes, things
simply get lost in the mix, and it can
take time to realize what happened
before you're able to identify the issue
and take action.
Clarifying goals and responsibilities is essential if you
intend to improve your  employee

Whenever you kick off a project or delegate out a new
task, it's essential to go into the logistics in as detailed
a way as possible, taking time to answer any questions
that your employees may have.

Whenever you kick off a project or
delegate out a new task, it's essential
to go into the logistics in as detailed a
way as possible, taking time to answer
any questions that your employees may
have. You may end up spending a little
more time explaining things, but the
fact that you'll be likely to experience
less headaches as a result, makes doing
so more than worth your while.
8. For New Hires, Start on the First
Day, Perfect the Onboarding Process
There's nothing more depressing for
a manager than hiring someone who
seems as if they'll be an excellent fit for
the job, only to find that they simply

aren't nearly as engaged in their work
as they should be.
Sometimes the issue stems NOT from
the individual, but from the way they're
onboarded. Joining a new company can
be a very stressful experience, and the
more help a new employee can get, the
better they'll be at their job.
It can be tempting to allow employees to fend for themselves during the
onboarding process instead of helping
them through each step, but you'll
benefit greatly from being there in case
they're in need of a hand.
Onboarding doesn't have to
be a lengthy process, but it most
likely will be if you don't help to move
things along.
CEOs and those in managerial
positions should make themselves
