Engagement Ideas that actually make sense (especially in Greece)
Employees are the most important part of any organisation. Employees at every level should feel motivated and happy to give their best to their responsibilities. Engaging them helps a company achieve this, which in turn leads to the company’s success. In our previous article we connected the dots between what engagement is, its importance, some of the broader results it can bring along and provided a wide approach to it. Now, let’s look at few great ideas that can be implemented locally and connect the dots with Wellness this time! Source Employees need something for motivation (Besides money) Consider any sport. Sure, the winners make money. But what drives them is something much bigger than the mere paycheck. It’s the moment when they’re crowned the winner! When they feel that their hard work has been recognised in front of everyone. Your employees deserve and need the same, and more often than not, they themselves will not know this. Help them feel that their contribution is important for the success of your team and give them the feeling of taking the team to success, when your team does well. Unity Consider yourself the team leader and your employees the supporters. Now, in any sport, even though it’s the leader who takes the team to success, it is actually a team effort. Similarly, each member of your team has his own responsibilities. But in the end, they’re all working towards a common goal, i.e., making your business successful. Therefore, it is important to maintain unity in the team and have the team members respect and value each other. A well-planned employee engagement program will help your employees stay motivated and remember that they are proud members of a great team. Wellness is the key! It’s not enough for any sportsman to be in a good physical shape; mental well-being has an equal priority! If not, any healthy person would be a sportsman! Similarly, you need to figure out how your employees are feeling, especially at the workplace. Their overall health plays an important role in how well they perform at work. Consider integrating wellness programs to keep your employees informed about their health and how to maintain it. You can even devise some stress busting programs to relax your employees and make them perform better. They will be at their best when they feel the best! «Consult with WorkWell and Design your Own Wellness Program» Ideas that will definitely get your interest and hopefully inspire you Kevin Sheridan, New York Times best-selling Author of Building a Magnetic Culture, has helped some of the world’s largest corporations improve their culture and foster productive engagement. When we asked him what companies should be doing better to improve workplace engagement, he offered us this wisdom: GET YOUR HEALTH AND WELLNESS PROGRAM IN “The bottom line is that anyone who knows about employee engagement is also a firm believer in instituting health and wellness programs. There have been multiple scientific studies proving that health and wellness efforts not only yield higher productivity and engagement in the workplace but will also help reduce turnover as job stress is the #1 reason people quit (along with a lack of work-life balance which is related to wellness as well).” GIVE YOUR PEOPLE “INSIDE” INFORMATION Want to know a great way to get your team more involved and committed? Keep them up to date with “inside” information. These are things like the direction of the company and the challenges that the Leadership Team is facing. Tim Sackett, HR Pro and President at HRU Technical Resources, explains this important part of your employee engagement strategy: “The one true fact in all workplaces is your people want to be in the know, they want to be in the circle of trust. HR and leadership, in general, do a crappy job at this, and it has a huge impact to engagement. Find ways to make this happen and let your people know that it’s “inside” information. Trusting your employees can handle it raises engagement.” EMPHASIZE WORK-LIFE BALANCE Work-life balance often seems like an impossible struggle. It’s difficult to find that right balance between work and personal life to feel good that both areas are receiving enough attention. Blake McCammon of Blogging4Jobs, a popular blog focused on HR and the workplace, had this to say about work-life balance’s role in employee engagement: “Work-life balance is one of the most important things employers can do to help employees not only stay healthy and fit, but keep them engaged day by day. Provide a work from home scenario and flexible hours where employees with children or adults with hobbies are allowed the freedom to enjoy life to the fullest, but still get their work done.” CONDUCT AN ANONYMOUS EMPLOYEE SURVEY TO GET HONEST FEEDBACK Use a tool like TINYpulse or SurveyMonkey to create a survey and send it out to your team. Surveys are one of the few ways to actually measure and track engagement, so definitely make this part of your efforts. Ask questions like: How are you feeling? What’s the morale you see around you? Good Idea (what one thing will make the biggest improvement in your job, your team or the organization?) Do you have a good working relationship with your manager? Would you rather have a salary increase of < 1.5 % or invest that money on a Wellness Program (try to be specific about it) FIND OUT YOUR TEAM’S PASSIONS Are they into any sports? Do they have a personal blog? Do they want to travel around around Southeast Asia next summer? Do they play any musical instruments? Know what your team is passionate about. It’ll help you connect with them and show them that you actually care about their interests.

5 Powerful Stress Relievers You Can Do At Your Desk (by Forbes.com)
Stress can take a serious toll on your mental and physical health if you’re not proactively taking steps to combat its harmful effects. And while practices like yoga and exercise are good long-term strategies for stress reduction, there are times where you need immediate relief from distress. Workplace stress relievers are helpful for difficult days, and exercises you can perform at your desk can be a lifesaver. High stress levels and spikes in anxiety impair concentration and creativity. Relaxing for a few minutes before you make that sales call, or calming yourself down before you give an important presentation, could be key to peak performance. Here are five quick stress relievers you can do at your desk: 1. Progressive Muscle Relaxation Stress can cause you to tense certain muscles in your body. Over time, you may become so accustomed to that tension that you stop noticing that your muscles are tight. Sore muscles – especially in the neck and shoulders – can stem from chronic tension. Progressive muscle relaxation lets go of that tension. Focus on slowly tensing and then relaxing your muscles, one group at a time. Start with your toes and work your way up to your neck. With practice, you’ll increase your awareness of when you’re tensing your muscles and you’ll learn to let go of that tension. 2. Visualization When you can’t physically go to your ‘happy place,’ a quick mental vacation can do wonders for your stress. Visualize one of the most relaxing scenes you can imagine – a beach, the top of a mountain, your favorite chair in the living room, or any other place you’d love to be. Close your eyes and spend a few minutes imagining you are there. Engage as many senses as you can by thinking about what you’d see, hear, smell, touch, and taste if you were really enjoying that relaxing scene. A quick mental vacation can relax your mind and body. 3. Deep Breathing / Please ask WorkWell for our ‘Mindfulness Techniques’ program You likely don’t pay much attention to your breath. After all, you do it all day long and it’s completely automatic. But, becoming more aware of your breath, and performing a few deep breathing exercises can produce a natural relaxation response. Deep breathing is so powerful that The American Institute of Stress even named it the ‘best stress reduction technique’ of all. Deep breathing increases the supply of oxygen to your brain and helps promote a state of calmness. Additionally, breathing techniques assist you in focusing on your body, which can quiet your mind. Although there are a variety of breathing techniques – some combine breathing with visualization – taking a few slow, deep belly breaths can provide immediate stress relief. 4. Engage Your Senses Engaging your senses is another way to refocus your attention and help you let go of worry. The key is to find out which sense is most helpful for you to engage. While some people find listening to music calms their minds, others experience maximum stress relief by looking at family photos. Experiment with a variety of activities that engage your senses. Put scented lotion on your hands, give yourself a quick hand massage, eat a piece of your favorite candy, or squeeze a stress ball. With practice, you’ll learn to recognize which types of sensory activities provide you with the most stress relief. 5. Laugh It’s true what they say – laughter really is the best medicine. A hearty chuckle stimulates circulation and soothes tension, which relieves some of the physical symptoms of stress. Laughter also increases endorphins released by the brain and produces a relaxed feeling. Surround yourself with a few items that will induce a giggle. Keep a folder filled with funny cartoons, funny photos, or ridiculous jokes. Talk to a co-worker with a hearty sense of humor or share a funny story. A willingness to laugh at yourself sometimes can also serve as a good reminder not to take life so seriously, which can do wonders for your stress level. Practice Makes Perfect Relaxation exercises take practice, so don’t give up right away if you don’t see immediate results. Practicing relaxation exercises regularly can train your brain and your body to react to stress differently. Over time, you’ll learn to quickly relieve your distress so you can prevent stress from hindering your performance.
