Keeping Employees Energized and Engaged: Strategies for Motivating Your Workforce
Joyce Jamroz, Jamroz & Katz Consulting

Do your employees work with passion and feel a strong connection to their work and department? Or are they just putting in time – but not energy or enthusiasm? According to a 2013 Gallup study, only 29% of workers are “committed to their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions”. (  Worldwide, 13% of Employees are Engaged at Work). As a supervisor, you play a key role in providing a climate where your employees feel motivated, committed, and care about their work.

Through interactive discussions and small group activities, you will learn how to:

  • Create an environment where employees feel motivated and empowered to reach their peak performance
  • Acknowledge ideas / suggestions so that employees feel their contributions are listened to and valued
  • Power up employees with recognition and rewards
  • Enable your employees to be accountable for results and less dependent on you

You will walk away with an action plan for taking and implementing practical, low cost actions that can motivate, engage, and optimize your employee’s performance.
