Three ways to boost employee engagement

Laure Leyssens

Employee engagement. Critical for a company's success and something we definitely want to foster at SUMSUM. In the past year, we have introduced several new initiatives designed to inspire our team members, encourage knowledge sharing, and cultivate a community that thrives on growth and collaboration. In this article, we'll look behind the scenes of SUMSUM and offer you some inspiration.

1. SUMHOW Sessions: Lunchtime Knowledge Sharing

Innovation, teamwork, and continuous learning lie at the core of our culture. We're constantly exploring new tools and ideas to enhance our work, which we love sharing with our colleagues. That's why we've introduced SUMHOW Sessions, which take place during lunchtime. These sessions fall into two categories:

  • SUMHOW TOOLS: In these sessions, everyone can present new tools or technologies they have discovered that could benefit the team. Doing this regularly encourages us to stay up-to-date with the latest trends.
  • SUMHOW KNOWLEDGE: These sessions focus on general knowledge sharing. If a colleague possesses in-depth knowledge on a particular topic, we encourage them to share it with the team. This way, we can inspire and teach each other.

2. NUMNUM Monthly Breakfast

Every month, we come together for the NUMNUM Monthly Breakfast, a time to celebrate and connect. During this breakfast, we provide delicious food and, of course, the essential fuel for our day - coffee. However, it's not just about the food. We also celebrate our colleagues' birthdays and work anniversaries for that month. Doing this fosters a strong bond within our team and reminds us that we are part of a community that cares about each other.

3. Learning Paths: Guiding Growth and Development

We understand that advancing within an organization can sometimes be challenging. To facilitate this process, we took the time this summer to sit down with our employees and map out their personal growth journeys. From this effort, our 'Learning Paths' were born, guiding new hires and those aspiring to new roles within our company.

Our Learning Paths contain a wealth of information, including relevant courses, certifications, books, and more, to help employees achieve their goals and succeed in their current or desired roles. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting program, which empowers our team members to thrive in their careers.

Stay tuned for more updates on our ongoing efforts to improve our work environment and strengthen our community. Together, we continue to grow and thrive. And if you know any other best practices regarding employee engagement - let us know! We're all about knowledge building.
