The engine that powers a cohesive, efficient and successful ergo-culture based program is employee engagement. Though like any complex machine, it only runs at peak performance when each member of the team is contributing their expertise, picking up any slack and watching for unforeseen issues in the road ahead.
Recruiting qualified employees for the team is therefore paramount to achieving success in culture based ergo programs.
While some programs are expert-based, meaning they don’t seek widespread employee engagement outside of their expert ergonomist, other departments or programs within a given company rely on volunteers to embrace the organization’s vision. So, developing an engaged workforce starts with identifying valuable traits in prospective recruits.
Here are some key traits to consider when assessing employees that desire to be part of your programs:
Developing a strong brand and vision is an excellent step in attracting an engaged workforce. In order to cultivate volunteers, companies need to provide them with positive experiences and a robust department/program that values their input.
Strengthen the brand with these approaches. Make it more attractive to qualified, engaged recruits and allow the organization to filter out employees who might not be a good fit for the team.
