The Importance Of Humanizing The Workplace

Employee engagement has become increasingly difficult to maintain over the past few months as many workers continue to work from home. While this may seem like an insignificant factor in the workplace, having healthy employee engagement can help deter turnover rates, improve morale, boost productivity and even better their overall health.

Research has found that the personal lives are very important to engaged employees, so companies need to recognize and nurture a workplace that focuses on the human touch.

One way to humanize the workplace is to ensure that the process does not hinder collaboration. Systemizing all processes, while sometimes is good for efficiency, can also make employees feel like a cog in the machine. Leaders need to support a collaborative environment that hones in on creativity and teamwork.

Having an agile workforce is also essential to creating a more human workplace. Coming to the realization that business leaders are not always in control and no employee is perfect will be vital to nurturing a healthy work culture. All workers have their own unique strengths and weaknesses, so keeping staff responsibilities flexible will be essential.

Lastly, leaders need to recognize the importance of a person’s personal lives. While it is not necessary to know each and every detail of a worker’s home life, it is important to acknowledge what they find most important: their families, birthdays, anniversaries, hobbies and more. Doing so creates a stronger bond between leaders and their employees, which ultimately leads to better loyalty and engagement.
