SUMMARY: Resources – including a facilitator guide, participant handout and slides – help you facilitate an effective team discussion about addressing and improving engagement in your workplace. The intended outcome is to create a practical and cost-effective action plan that works for your team.

Engagement is a work environment where employees feel connected to their work, co-workers and their organization and are motivated to do their job well.

These statements make up the engagement factor in Guarding Minds at Work:

  1. I enjoy my work.
  2. I am willing to give extra effort at work if needed.
  3. My work is an important part of who I am.
  4. I am committed to the success of my organization.
  5. I am proud of the work I do.
  6. I am committed to the success of my team.

Engage your entire team in reviewing the factors that impact psychological health and safety in your workplace. This approach is recommended by the National Standard of Canada on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. By doing this, you build awareness of the responsibility of each employee to contribute to a positive workplace culture. You also get their involvement in developing and being part of the solution.
