There are a number of ways to encourage employees to support ownership goals and enhance the success of the business.
Here are a few ideas:
• Show the big picture. Sharing the business strategy allows employees to see beyond their individual role. Allow upward communication as a channel for employees to share their ideas.
• Reward employees who go beyond the norms of their job description. This recognition and expression of appreciation will ensure that efforts will continue.
• Be transparent. When employees see the full context and options considered in a decision they are more likely to support the organization even if they disagree with the decision made.
• Use collaboration. Higher participation in the decision process yields better buy-in for decisions as employees are more likely to support ideas they help develop.
I hope these options provide a better insight on how to improve employee support for achieving company goals.
