Engage employees and raise the fun quotient using Workplace
Research indicates that engaged, happy, and motivated employees are more productive. As a result, companies everywhere are making a lot of effort to build an engaged and fun employee community.
MakeMyTrip uses a group called ‘Care, Connect, and Celebrate’ on Workplace to engage their employees and to raise the fun quotient through online contests, exciting communication, and event updates on Workplace. This group hosts news about a wide variety of employee focused topics, e.g., employees’ new borns, giant Christmas decoration, fancy Diwali dressing contest, monthly trainings, engagement calendar, and major employee focused initiatives.
How to do it in your organisation in three simple steps
- Create an ‘Open’, ‘Default’ and ‘Announcements’ type group called, say, ‘Care, Connect, and Celebrate’. Restrict posting permission to admins only and make relevant HR team members admins [Resources here]
- Share the employee engagement related communication in this group in rich media format
- Encourage an engaging dialogue by asking employees to express their feelings and thoughts in comments to each post and by responding to these comments constructively
