Knowing Vision Keeps Workers Engaged


    Workers are more engaged when they know their employers’ vision and recent research suggests most Canadian companies feel they are keeping their teams informed of their business goals, says a Robert Half ‘Management Resources survey.’ Nearly four in five (79 per cent) Canadian chief financial officers said their employees are at least somewhat aware of their firm’s strategic objectives. “Communicating business goals is an important step in the right direction toward engaging and motivating employees, but just helping people become aware of those goals isn’t enough,” says David King, Canadian president of Robert Half Management Resources. “Managers need to empower workers and show them how their individual contributions support the efforts to reach the organization’s objectives.”
