Unconscious behaviours and biases are often at play with interpreting perceptions and driving our actions. Many of our behaviours in the workplace and elsewhere are motivated by unconscious triggers and emotions. These behaviours, however, can be prevented by making conscious choices that tap into our subconscious thinking.
Employee engagement is a workplace approach resulting in the right conditions for all members of an organisation to give of their best each day, committed to their organisation’s goals and values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, with an enhanced sense of their own well-being.
