Engaging staff is essential for moving the needle and encouraging them to be invested in the mission. Here are some creative ways to get them the information they need.

ALERTS
If your operations system provides the ability to create staff alerts, which will appear when a staff member logs in, use the opportunity to regularly communicate with and engage them. Think: policy changes or upcoming training opportunities.

TRAINING
Be proactive about providing training opportunities for staff. Print out training resources and post them around staff areas, forward emailed training resources to your team, and schedule refresher courses when releasing new policies and practices. If setting up a system alert to inform staff of upcoming training, be sure to include the registration URL in the message.

INSPIRE
