  • Why is Employee Engagement so Important?

    Employee engagement is when all members of your team are on board with the company’s goals and values, and are motivated to give their best to contribute towards the success of the company and their own personal goals. We can’t stress enough on how crucial this is for higher business profits and reducing employee turnover. After a bit of research, the Telkee Key Cabinets team have compiled some key tips leaders should keep in mind to increase employee engagement in an organisation

    Brand Awareness

    Have your employees use your products to be completely engaged with the service of product you sell. For instance in the  case of Telkee key cabinets, our team members should try out our range of lockable key cabinets to understand the customer's situation and be able to provide better customer service. If a key cabinet setup manual is missing some information that is required when actually setting it up, this way an employee will pick up on it and the marketing collateral can be changed to include it.

    You’ll find that from using this approach, there will be a lot more than sifting through data to find empirical answers to engagement issues.

    Give and Receive Feedback Regularly

    Instead of waiting for that once a year performance review, we believe that shortening feedback loops is the answer to increasing employee engagement. According to research, 43% of highly engaged employees receive feedback at least once a year. While this is hard to accomplish when you have a large team, you can always keep this model in mind and aim to shorten the time frame as much as possible.

    Clear Communication of Organisation Goals

    How can you expect your employees to be on board with your business goals, if they don’t know what they are! Break the communication silence and maintain transparency at all times, to ensure all team members are working towards the same goal.

    Listen to Your Employees

    Many members of senior management want their employees to hear them, but are not willing to take the time to listen to what these team members have to say. It’s been said before, but maintain an “Open Door” policy where employees are free to discuss any concerns or feedback they have without fear of repercussion. You’ll be surprised at how this will help your company save money and time in some instances, as employees who are actually handling a process themselves will have great ideas on ways to streamline processes.

    Most importantly listen to what they have to say and act on it, there is nothing worse than having a good idea ignored!

  • Work Safety Tips to Secure Your Workplace

    Making your workplace safe and secure is nothing something that can be accomplished overnight and not updated. Continuous improvements are required to ensure your work safety is not jeopardised at any point. This can range from the use of Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) Cabinets for managing the duty of care and WHS requirements for work on-sites to conducting training sessions for employees to keep them aware of their surroundings and helping them recognise potential hazards. Even the smallest daily tasks, can make a huge difference when it comes to significantly reducing risk - keep reading for some great tips from Telkee Key Cabinets.

     

      1. Maintaining a clean work area is of paramount importance. This will reduce the risk of injury by letting employees clearly see potential hazards, which they would otherwise miss in a cluttered environment. Consider using high quality adjustable shelf cabinets or other office cabinet storage solutions to keep things neat and tidy at all times and provide a more productive work environment for your employees.

    1. Apart from ensuring machinery and materials are well positioned to ensure the smooth flow of production, it is important to provide clear work instructions to all employees. While conducting  thorough training is crucial, there should also be clear, written instructions placed in highly visible positions. Along with documenting work processes in this manner, aim to include basic safety instructions that each worker can read and acknowledge.

    2. Get your employees on board with work safety by asking them for their input on safety standards and regulations. No one can identify potential risks than those who actually carry out the tasks and create shortcuts. Follow their suggestions for ensuring the work areas remain safe at all times and also encourage employees to bring their safety concerns to management’s attention at all times. Once this has been done, it’s the management’s responsibility to act on these concerns and eliminate the risk, to win the trust of your employees.

    3. Safety guidelines are not something that should be created and then ignored. Revisit these documents every year as nothing stays the same in any workplace. As new machinery is purchased, employees changes and office spaces change, previous safety guidelines may not be applicable and will need to be modified to reflect the change.

  • Health and Work: Creating the Perfect Mix

    Safeguarding your employees from any potential risks at work is fundamental to ensuring they stay happy, healthy and at your organisation, which in turn results in continued success for your business. When it comes to creating the perfect mix of health and work to ensure the safety of your employees, there are a couple of key rules that should be followed consistently to produce the perfect result. Here’s a look at six of these rules that can be easily adapted to suit your organisation’s requirements.

    Eliminate Any Potential Safety Hazards

    This is an important first step to take when aiming to create a safe workplace. For example, when working in a warehouse environment, ensure floors are free of “slip and trip” hazards by carrying out regular safety checks. The floor should be clear of stray cords, liquids etc and any cracks on the floor should be fixed as soon as possible to avoid employee injuries.

    Clearly Label Designated Hazardous Zones

    If there are chemicals or any dangerous equipment that has potential to be a risk to employees, it should be carefully stored away in designated hazardous zones. Clear signage should be used to identify these areas. These zones can be illuminated using black and white tape or with stripes painted on the floor so that it can’t be missed. This will help employees be aware of hazardous zones and practice caution in these areas.

    Provide Training and Refresher Courses

    Education is key to ensuring your employees are aware of safety protocols, which reduces the risk of potential injuries, absenteeism because of injury and damage to expensive equipment. Instead of just carrying out training as an employee joins, aim to have refresher courses on a regular basis to keep staff up to date with knowledge of safety practices within the workplace.

    Stay Organised with a Workplace Health  and Safety Cabinet
