Your role as office manager or accounts receivables/payable wizard provides singular knowledge of what makes your construction company survive or thrive. You also have a unique opportunity to cultivate employee engagement during a time when companies are competing for labor.
Here are 3 ways to develop employee engagement within your organization.
1. Get To Know Them
When you learn more about their career goals, you’ll understand that most workers want professional and personal growth opportunities, flexibility, and a meaningful work-life balance. But behind-the-scenes office employees often want to make a very real difference. They want to be a factor in their construction company’s success.
In its 2023 Accounts Payable Career Satisfaction report, AvidXchange, Inc. says workers want to feel a connection to their company. Seventy percent of engaged employees believe their direct supervisor values their contributions and cares about their development.
2. They Want More Automation Tools
Smart business decisions are usually backed by data, and detailed analyses and reports are in-demand at most organizations. But many finance teams feel they don’t have the tools they need to support and develop the kinds of insights that can lead to construction company growth. Freeing workers from repetitive, mundane tasks that could be automated can lead to profit-driven employee engagement.
3. Technology Attracts More Job-Seekers
Paper-based processes won’t attract the people you need for office support. The career survey indicated almost half of employees would not consider a job with a company that lacked the necessary technologies to automate repetitive tasks. When your key team players have the technology tools they need, they can use valuable time to develop money-saving and money-making strategies, it’s a win-win.
