2019 Employee Engagement Planning – A Resolution You Can Keep

Not familiar with it? Start by filling out the short online form and you’ll have a FREE, indispensable and inspiring guide at your fingertips. Here’s what to expect for each month in addition to meaningful, compelling (yet easy-to-read) articles on an array of topics meant to inspire your planning and workplace activities:
- Key stats (in case you still need to prove to leadership how critical employee engagement and appreciation is)
- Ready-to-Go Celebration examples (so even if you think you aren’t creative you’ll have turn-key approaches to create more fun in the workplace)
- Mini-case studies (learn what’s worked for other organizations)
- Plenty of graphics (which make this ebook feel like fun, not work)
Make Employee Engagement Planning a Focus in 2019
We challenge you to flip through our free Calendar and if you’re new to employee engagement, or stuck in rut – try to implement one new idea each month! For example National Pie Day is coming up on 1/23 (not to be confused with PI day which is on 3/14) and Fun at Work Day is later this month on 1/28. Or take the suggestion from the information on the April page which suggests starting “Thank you note Thursdays.” (We’ve got some thank you note pointers if you could use help.)
Not every company has a large budget for engagement and recognition strategies, but you’ll get ideas for initiatives that are no-cost and low-cost. Also, all too often, money is poured into recognition programs that aren’t meaningful to employees or fall short on genuine appreciation:
A study by Bersin & Associates found that 87 percent of the $26 billion spent annually on employee recognition goes toward ineffective tenured-based recognition such as pins and awards dinners.
So, while the impetuous behind those types of programs might be sincere and well-meaning, the ROI isn’t there from both a financial standpoint and the impact on employees. Employee recognition is about so much more than end-of-the year dinners and employee of-the-month plaques. The most successful businesses know the importance of sharing sincere appreciation and celebrating employee day-in and day-out.
