What does employee engagement look like moving forward in the age of rapid technological advancements and the COVID-19 pandemic?
Will remote work become not only an accepted norm but a business preference?
“Employee engagement is a vast subject, and it entirely depends on how the recipient comprehends it,” Bora said.
During Bora’s 20-year career, he’s embraced the concept of employee engagement from both the employee and employer perspective.
“Employee engagement is a beautiful way of looking at things when everyone acts as an owner rather than an employee/employer relationship.”
Bora understands the importance of employee engagement, because it fosters an environment where employees invest in the success of their company and are not merely showing up to work to pick up a paycheck.
“When employees care and are engaged, they are proven to be productive, efficient, and to put forth 100% for the betterment of the business,” Bora said. “It improves the bottom line for an organization, and it builds trust with customers and clients.”
And even as companies deal with the majority of their workforce shifting to, at least for now, a temporary remote work environment, this should not change the strategy away from employee engagement. There is still the need to acknowledge hard work and to stay engaged with employees through online meetings and various other remote communication tools.
