"The biggest challenge you've faced at work… Is it the work or the people?" Whether you are a CEO, HR, manager or team leader, you could surely relate. As much as some work better as lone rangers, working with a team is inevitable at the workplace. Managing people is difficult, but making people work, achieve and grow the company together is even tougher.
What’s worse, great, talented people are rare and hard to get. HRs and hiring managers worldwide are working relentlessly to win the talent war, feeling sick, tired and restless from rounds and interviews. Top talents come and go. If you can relate, or have a fair share of it, continue reading to learn more about the solutions you need…
Every company wants top talent. Yet, even after finding the right person, they struggle to retain them. Employees leave a company for a few simple reasons. A lot of times, it is not all about money.
Employees want to work for companies with good, positive and healthy company culture. If your company offers a workplace with employee engagement, recognition, appreciation, and development opportunities, there's no reason for your people to leave.
Engaged employees are willing to go that extra mile for your company. A study by Hays reported that companies with high employee engagement levels observe business growth 4.5 times faster on average than those with low employee engagement levels. However, creating engagement takes work, time and effort. So let a.c.e help you achieve an engaged workforce speedily and effectively.
Above Creative Events (a.c.e) is an award-winning event planner based in Malaysia. Besides corporate and virtual events, we also specialize in corporate dinners, such as annual dinners, gala dinners, staff appreciation dinners, awards dinners etc. Over the years, we have helped 50+ companies like yours boost workforce morale and improve productivity through successful employee engagement events.
The need to increase employee engagement is pressing simply because employee engagement significantly impacts and drives business performance and growth in the long run. Employee engagement is more than a workforce metric. If approached rightly, employee engagement can be a powerful tool to boost workforce morale and productivity.
The Mercer’s Engagement Index suggested that 1 in 4 Malaysian employees do not feel engaged at work, which is among the highest in the Asia Pacific region. Low employee engagement levels can impede your company's business prospects and growth. Therefore, it is time to start focusing on employee engagement of your company, keeping your employees motivated, feeling satisfied and productive, and ultimately driving significant improvement and performance.
A Gallup research found that disengaged employees have 18% lower productivity and 15% lower profitability. In addition, disengaged employees lead to low productivity, lost revenue and higher turnover. Employers, HRs, and hiring managers have struggled with high employee turnover and low retention in recent years, mainly because employees feel unappreciated, disengaged and dissatisfied at work.
In other words, disengaged employees are mindless with work because they feel stress and burnout, are unhappy with the people, or are unappreciated by the company. As a result, when employees feel indifferent about their jobs, they are more prompt to start hunting for new opportunities and eventually resign. All these can be prevented if companies are willing to invest in recognizing and appreciating their employees more. It’s all worth it.
According to a study by Achievers, only 9% of employees claimed that their leaders are committed to engagement initiatives. In contrast, 58% of employees advised that their leaders took no action or were merely reactive instead of proactive in team engagement.
As a leader, if you are complacent about creating a great, engaging and inclusive workplace for your people, then why would you expect that your people will be anything but complacent about their day-to-day responsibilities? So start making a change today. It's never too late.
Boosting team morale is an ongoing effort. If your team's morale is dipping, it's time to make some changes. Various strategies can be implemented to boost and maintain employee morale. A gala, appreciation dinner or annual dinner are some of the best ideas. However, do note that, instead of taking these events as one-time solutions, integrate them permanently into your company culture.
Employee morale is a crucial measure of the overall health of a company's culture. Positive work cultures are more productive than those that aren't. Research by Gallup reported that positive employee morale and engagement could increase profitability by 21%. In addition, social connections and bonds between colleagues are foundational to a company's success.
Corporate dinners, such as annual dinners, gala dinners, staff appreciation dinners, awards dinners etc., are not common affairs. Many companies reckon that it is a major expense with no specific purpose. However, these major expenses come with many long-standing benefits. In many ways, these benefits even outweigh the cost involved.
Studies suggest that over 96% of these corporate events yield positive returns. Corporate dinner events can be a great way to boost employee morale, validate their hard work and talent, and appreciate and promote their contribution to the company. It goes along with creating better-focused teams that are also well-motivated to drive productivity and go the extra mile for the company, taking forward the company’s interest in a comprehensive manner.
Corporate dinner events help improve social connections and bonds between colleagues through open communication between the team at the dinner table.
Companies with high employee morale tend to make the workplace more positive, leading to healthy cultures, engaged employees, and enviable employer brands.
When employees feel appreciated by the company, they become more motivated to perform better, volunteer for extra duties, and more willing to accept new challenges and embrace change.
Happy employees believe that their company is a great place to work. Hence they are more likely to stay and become great advocates for their company.
Unlike indifferent employees who are merely working for money, doing enough to avoid being fired but are less likely to go above and beyond, contented employees tend to be more efficient and productive, happy to serve the company by putting in their best effort.
You must be thinking, ‘Is a dinner event all it takes to make my people happy, which indirectly translates to delivering promising results and achieving business goals? Surely it can’t be THAT simple and straightforward.'
