At MAU, the topic of “employee engagement” is taken seriously. We have established unique processes and events to make sure our employees know just how much they mean to our company.
For example, all managers at MAU gather once per quarter to discuss the current state of their department, strengths, challenges, etc. At the beginning of the meeting, each manager is presented the opportunity to speak for one minute about what’s happening in their life. This provides our employees the opportunity to get to know one another beyond traditional work-related conversations. At MAU, we refer to this activity as a “personal check-in”.
In addition, we have departmental “take five” meetings where all of the employees in each department gather to discuss their current responsibilities at work. Gathering together also provides opportunities for employees to share what’s on their mind, even if it’s not work related.
On site at Client locations, MAU leaders hold pre-shift meetings with employees. They typically start with a safety topic and then cover the plan for the day.
We encourage everyone to think about ways in which employee engagement may be improved within their companies. At MAU, we are constantly developing new ways in which we connect and enrich the lives of our employees. After all, without great employees, our companies would cease to exist!
