While the term has set TikTok ablaze, and is directed mostly at members of generation Z and remote workers, it’s just a new name for an age-old issue:
Disengagement can happen overnight but we can prevent it by creating a work environment that fosters open communication and encourages employees to speak up about their concerns or issues.
Here are some steps you can take:
Find out what motivates your team members, as individuals
Understand your team members’ behaviour and development needs Employees are more engaged when they’re on a productive, fruitful team, with people who get each other and can build trust, understanding why they behave in certain ways and what makes them tick.
Help them be themselves at work
By discovering each other’s styles and preferences, and understanding their own, people feel they can turn up as themselves at work, and have a richer relationship with their colleagues without having to be someone they’re not.
Managers need to be engaged too!
Employees need to feel that their manager understands them – it’s crucial to organisational success. Once Managers understand their teams on a deeper level, checking in with them to see how they’re doing becomes a richer and more meaningful experience, rather than just checking off a tick-box. Employees should feel comfortable speaking up about any issues they’re facing, without fear of retaliation or judgment. When the manager has a deeper understanding of their team members, issues can be addressed promptly and more openly, making the process easier for all concerned.
