Let’s Focus on Work and Love our Labor.
I have recently been looking at pictures of best employers and great places to work. There are so many pictures of fun that one could easily confuse engagement with just having fun, running on the workplace treadmill, and sipping away a morning with a lovely latte.
I love fun and I am fond of lattes but I think we need to keep a focus on the work itself and the people we work with. That is why I define employee engagement as: good work done well with others every day.
Engagement is less about lattes and more about labour, less about pizzas and parties and more about performance and productivity, less about a workout and more about getting into our work.
You just might find the more you get into work the more you will get out of it.
