Igniting Workplace Enthusiasm

Proud enough for a working selfie?

Proud_enough_for_a_working_selfieAre your employees happy enough to promote your business outside the office? Proud enough to take a selfie at work? More and more, employee selfies are seen as a sign of a positive work environment. Here are a few suggestions to make employee proud enough to promote your company as the best employer or business partner.

Involve them in the vision renewal.

We suggest you invite every employee to contribute by being a part of the annual company vision reevaluation. That way, not only will you increase their sense of belonging to the company's mission, but you will also incite them to strive to achieve this mission. If your company is bigger in size, do the same exercise within teams or departments. “People support a world that they helped create.”

Promote your company’s values.

Be sure that your employees know and understand your company’s fundamental purpose, beliefs and motivations. Make a pledge to your clients, but also to your employees. Give meaning to their daily tasks and reinforce positive behaviours. Remind them why they should be proud of what they achieve by coming to work each day.

Walk the talk.

Be sure to reflect your values in all your day-to-day activities: every executive decision must be consistent with who you are and what you believe in as a company. Anyone who breaks that rule will lose their customer’s loyalty and their employee’s confidence. Before taking any initiative, ask yourself this question: Does this decision reflect our company’s values?

Rally behind a social cause.

Another way to garner employee's commitment to the success of your business is to invest in a corporate social responsibility strategy. Do so sincerely and genuinely. Become involved in a community cause that has a direct connection to your values at the core of your business. Your employees will recognize, value, respect and get involved with an organization that will benefit their community. 

As Dale Carnegie wisely reminds us: “When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.” To incite your employees to swell with pride when talking about their workplace, remind them that they are part of a great company with noble values, engaged in its community.
