According to a recent HR Dive article, a manager that allows employees to control their work tends to see better results than a manager that feels the need to micromanage all aspects of a worker’s job.
It is no surprise that a pleasant and collaborative company culture keeps employees engaged - but that is not always an easy thing to do. The key to successful employee engagement is having the time and resources to communicate effectively and efficiently to your team.
For example, Emtrain works hard to create a company culture where communication is supported by managers and ideas are shared fluidly to encourage employees to work to their highest potential and engage in workday activities with good energy.
