Focusing on Your Team in the New Year

2022: The Year We Figured Out How to Communicate Remotely

The hybrid workforce is in full effect. Budgets have been approved and company priorities are set for 2022. Typically, after we return from the holiday break, we’re off and running in the new year. Before we know it, we’re back to the same routine.  

Too often, we miss one important step: taking time to reflect as individuals and leaders on the why and the how of achieving the change we hope for. Setting individual goals that connect us to one another and to the strategic initiatives of our business amounts to a critical step to creating a workplace culture where employees matter and feel a true connection to the organization.   

Setting Your Workforce Engagement Goals

Now is the time when we all need to commit to goals for the year. Goals should be meaningful to individuals and be within sight given overall business objectives. In 2022, we are striving for impactful change and unique personal engagement as we emerge from a difficult couple of years.  

As individuals, we may be asking ourselves some thought-provoking questions: 

  • What do I want for myself and my team at work?
  • Where do I want the business to be by the end of next year?
  • What major milestones do I want to hit and surpass personally and for the business?
  • How can I ensure all of us are seen and heard?

Ensure Employees Feel Heard

If this effort feels daunting to you, you are not alone. But the truth is, it doesn’t have to be daunting, and you can’t afford not to act on it. “The great resignation” should have been a wake-up call for all leaders that businesses need to make a priority of employee engagement and retention, and focus on the fact that employees need to be seen and heard. The simplest way to manage this process is by utilizing an employee evaluation tool that is simple, is driven by the employees themselves and facilitates goal-setting and connection at all levels in a clean and structured way.
