Research has proven that organizations with an engaged workforce will likely outperform their goals and competition. Debosmita Ghoshal, Head of HR and Soft Skills and Communication Training at GI Outsourcing, also firmly agrees. Her excellent employee engagement practices have featured her in the prestigious Top 100 Great People Managers list of 2021 by Great Manager Institute®, published in Forbes India.
“I believe employee engagement drives performance.”
Deboshmita explains that employee engagement drives performance. An engaged employee will consider the broader outlook of the organization and understand how their performance fits into the bigger picture. She further says that engagement is the key differentiator in the organization’s growth and innovation.
“We have experienced the magic of motivation.”
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy
Debosmita believes that appreciation and motivation go hand in hand. Appreciation improves productivity. When employees know their hard work is appreciated and recognized, they feel that their work is valued. In addition to improving productivity, showing appreciation in the workplace also increases employee engagement and dedication. Appreciation helps build staff loyalty.
“We have a continuous learning process.”
According to Debosmita, what food is to the body, learning is to one’s existence. Just like food nourishes our bodies, information and continued learning nourish our minds. Lifelong learning is an indispensable tool for every career and organization. Today, continuous learning is necessary for acquiring critical thinking skills and discovering new ways of relating to people from different cultures. To live a life without continuous learning is unthinkable.
