As a manager, dealing with employees who lack enthusiasm for their jobs or don’t feel connected to the company is a big hurdle. Here are three things you can do daily to engage your people:

  • Facilitate progress. Employees feel engaged when they make headway toward objectives. Provide clear goals and resources to support their progress.
  • Make work meaningful. Your company doesn’t need a lofty mission to make employees care. They simply need to see how their actions contribute to company value, like a service or product.
  • Reward and recognize. Don’t wait for milestones. Show appreciation every day for the work your employees do.
