Guide to Employee Engagement

UO Connection
Engagement. Experience. Excellence.

Keeping employees connected to one another.

Human Resources has assembled a guide to engagment for supervisors and employees. The information shared in the guides can be easily incorporated into your day and are intended to reinforce strategies you already use or generate new ideas. These ideas are based on core principles we share as colleagues and as a community:

  • Focus on the people not just the process – Make room for the human element in every project and task.
  • Seek to understand – Find out where people are coming from and learn more about their point of view and perspective before drawing conclusions and passing judgment.
  • Recognize and embrace difference – Remember and remind others that it is our differences that make us stronger; our varied backgrounds and experiences give use more insight and knowledge to leverage.
  • Lean on each other – Reach out to others to get a renewed sense of purpose and to offer others encouragement and support.
