If you're looking to increase your job satisfaction and become more involved in your work, there are some steps you can take to improve your own engagement.
Step 1: Make a conscious choice to become engaged in your work. Engagement will require an increased amount of energy and effort on your part.
Step 2: Do a good job. Complete your work on time and with enthusiasm. Go above and beyond what's expected of you by suggesting areas of further work on the project. Step up to the plate for every duty you're tasked with; being dependable is a starting point to being engaged.
Step 3: Keep a positive attitude. Express optimism and good humor at the workplace; refrain from complaining. Remaining positive and professional will help you to enjoy your work and become more engaged.
Step 4: Offer constructive suggestions. Tell your supervisor about ideas you have to make your work more efficient. If it involves a new piece of equipment or supplies, demonstrate how the added cost will pay in terms of your productivity. Offer to take on additional training if it can help you do your job better.
Step 5: Volunteer for leadership opportunities. Become involved with tasks or projects which move the organization forward, even if they fall outside of your regular job description, demonstrates your commitment to the organization’s success.
Step 6: Promote the organization at work and in your day-to-day life. Share the organization's vision and values in your conversations with co-workers and residents. Being an advocate for the business is a way to feel good about the job you do and the positive results that come from engagement in your work.
