01 Feb Employee Engagement
‘Employee engagement’ is a management buzzword in dentistry these days. What does it mean? Should you be using it? Let’s TALK NOW.
If you Google the phrase ‘employee engagement’, be prepared for many pages of useful, confusing, and occasionally contradictory advice. Alternatively, you can read our advice (which is always useful) and some insights on the topic from our Club Connect members.
The research and commentators seem to suggest the same thing. They maintain there are lots of ways your team will benefit by you investing in their ‘employee engagement’. Yes, it applies to the self-employed members of your team too. For example, you can expect lower team turnover, stress, and absenteeism as well as improved patient service, productivity, and collaboration.
Our Club Connect members have improved their team engagement from 68% to 80%, in the past 9 months. This means that more people than ever are confidently saying ‘yes’ to key questions. These key questions have been researched and designed to test the leadership skills and behaviors of our members.
