How to Keep Your Employees Engaged During WFH

Spread the love

To overcome this global crisis, many organizations have changed the dynamics by asking their employees to work from home. However, while working professionals turn their homes into offices, they are also handling house chores, family commitments, other tasks, and seeking personal time. In such a scenario, it is important for employees and employers to keep their spirit and moral going. To cope well with these shifts in our personal and professional lives, it is imperative that HRs keep the work community engaged and motivated. Here are some of the ways HRs can use to keep their employees engaged.

  1. Rewards and Recognition
    Offering positive reinforcements to employees acts as a great encouragement. HRs can introduce e-vouchers or coupons to the employee of the week. By awarding them with these vouchers, one can increase their confidence and productivity, as well as introduce healthy competition amongst the team members.
  2. Friday Activities
    Many companies are now introducing ‘happy hour’ Fridays. One hour every Friday is dedicated to fun sessions where employees can interact, drink and eat together, enjoy some music, play the guitar or indulge in any form of entertainment.
  3. Hosting Cook-Offs
    To keep things interesting, HRs are also hosting cook-offs every week with all employees. If you have a common company platform, you could design your own recipe and post it on the page. The best recipe could win incentives in the form of vouchers. This gives the employees something to look forward to in the week.
  4. Online Workout Sessions
    Just like cook-offs, you could also dedicate an hour each week to indulge in a team workout session through video conferencing apps. Doing this will prevent burnout and keep the motivation going for everyone. It’s also a great way to maintain an active lifestyle.
  5. Games and Virtual Parties
    One could also introduce games or interactive sessions during the week or on weekends. There are plenty of online apps like Karaoke apps, gaming apps or interactive apps that allow a group of people to participate in games.

We couldn’t have imagined that we would be living like this until a few months ago. But with changing times, we must adapt to the situation. Adopting these fun tips and tricks to keep the employees engaged while they work from home could do wonders for your organization. We at Prompt had a fun, interactive employee engagement session on Zoom too, where every member of the team showcased their talent and shared it with others. These are some great ways to boost employee engagement and keep their spirits up during this difficult time.
