Why the Big Picture Matters: Strategies for Employee Retention and Engagement
In these unprecedented times of high turnover and employee burnout, it is crucial for managers to retain, engage and motivate current staff. One proven strategy for managers is to clearly communicate the organization’s big picture and how employees fit into it — people simply want to know how and why their work makes a difference.
Employees who clearly understand how they contribute to the big picture are more likely to:
- Become more invested in their jobs and make a difference
- Trust decisions made by management and serve as an advocate for the organization
- Bring innovative ideas to the table
- Work collaboratively with a team and improve job performance
In this program, we will review examples of how this strategy creates a more committed and innovative workforce. Participants will also learn ways to implement this strategy using employee check-ins, team discussions and performance management conversations.
- Identify the benefits of communicating the organization’s big picture and how using this strategy can lead to greater employee retention and engagement.
- Examine various scenarios, such as employee check-ins, team discussions and performance management conversation, where this strategy can be employed.
- Review desired outcomes and changes in employee performance after utilizing a big picture employee communication strategy.
