Human Resources has added a new information sheet to the Supervisor’s Toolkit designed to share best practices on a wide array of topics with individuals in supervisory positions.
Trust is essential to boosting employee engagement and motivation. When trust is present in the work environment, employees feel psychologically safer, are proud of where they work, and are more willing to go above and beyond to achieve organizational goals.
Supervisors play a key role in building a culture of trust within their teams. They can create the conditions in the work environment for employees to feel a sense of belonging, be more connected to their teams — one where individuals feel comfortable asking questions, sharing ideas, and expressing their thoughts.
This month’s information sheet highlights five strategies supervisors can use to foster a culture of trust within their teams. It also includes some questions that supervisors can reflect upon to help create an awareness of whether their daily practices encourage a culture of trust in the workplace.
