For inter department communication you can arrange team lunches for every team. in this way you can improve communication with in team.
you can also have brain stroming sessions on technical / non techical topics
Rewrads & recognition
you can device a recognition program for employees. this may me quarterly or half yearly like pat on the back award, Excellence award ect,.

For Recognition you can provide thr Certificates to the Employees of Best Performer of the Month or praising him among other staff members.
For Inter deptt. Communication, you need to change their attitude first if they are not happy talking to others or do some get together party.

Brainstorm with some of your colleagues on what theythink are the top employee engagers at work ? ( 'Employee engagers' are those factors,other than work, that gets your most attention and could bind you to the organisation )
I have listed a few.You might like to add or even rank them !
Peer bonding
Fun culture
High energy atmosphere
Learn and earn potential
Positive work pressure

Miss Perfectionist:

This is what you need to do.
This is an OD exercise which cannot be implemented without Organization Suppport.
Follow the action plan below

1. Study the weak variables that you want to improve upon i.e Leadership, Communication, Recognition etc.
2. Form Task Forces for each of the variables - comprising of leader, sub - leader and 4-5 members - preferably cross functional so that we get inputs from all areas. Nominate 1 Hr person in each or more of these task forces.
3. Assign a certain amount of responsibility to the leader of each task force.
4. Organise weekly/ fortnightly/ monthly meetings of these task forces to arrive at various ways of improving the engagement scores
5. Collect these inputs and put forth to the management giving HR views into each of these inputs. It is important that you don't curb the initiatves of the task forces and note down all the inputs however absurd they may be.
6. Management shall decide the way forward with each of these inputs.
7. Either HR implements these inputs or even better the Task Forces shall implement these initiatives.
8. Arrange a quarterly / Half yearly (udit) by a senior HR Professional from another Organization. In this Audit all the Task forces shall present their path towards achieving better engagement scores in their respective areas.
9. The External Person shall give a feedback on the progress of each area and also suggest other possible improvement areas.
10. Repeat this cycle till you come to the next Survey.

This is a continuous process.
Its worked wonders where I worked earlier - Grasim Industries - Aditya Birla Group.

You can prepare a Flowchart for doing this and present it to the Management.

There is no one solution that fits all. Similarly, untill I understand the company profile and what motivates your employees, its pointless attempting an engagement programme.
While for some a family day or perhaps an annual day would do the trick, in some places a casual evening with Alcohol would do the trick.
Send across to me a few details about your company, maybe we could mutually arrive at something.
If you want to really taste success, ASK YOUR EMPLOYEES, and do not assume that A particular activity would do wonders.

Hello Miss Perfectionist:

>I am doing project on Employee Engagement...
Employee satisfaction survey was conducted in
our company by external consultants and based
on the results we have to plan some
activities to engage employees.<

We cannot measure employee engagement with an employee satisfaction survey.

Employee engagement and employee satisfaction are two different things.

Employee engagement is what we get when an employee is motivated by the job and is successful in the job and is well managed by the supervisor and paid fairly by management.

Employee satisfaction is what we get when we give employees things they want whether or not they are engaged by their jobs.

>Compensation, Career planning, Rewards &
Recognition & Inter Departmental communication
are the four major areas of improvement... can
somebody plz help me regarding this?<

If we work to satisfy our employees we may well decrease employee engagement because we will be focusing on the wrong things. A few things to consider.
  • Good employees who are successful and managed and paid well will be engaged even if not fully satisfied.
  • Good employees who are successful but not managed well or paid well will not be engaged and will not be satisfied.
  • Bad employees who are unsuccessful even though they are well managed and well paid will not be engaged even if fully satisfied.

Hi Miss perfectionist
You can use following Employee engagement activities at your office.
1. Informal interaction of your employeees with Top Management (may be in sessions. - Employees feel motivated 7 connected to vision, mission of organization.
2. Some health camps can be organized.
3. Birthday, annual or quarterly parties can be arranged.
4. Awarness sessions on general topics. (may be by some external agency)
5. HR policies must be properly told to employees. For this sessions cam be conducted.
This are small examples. All these activities make employees feel connected & valuable for organization plus gives them a transparent picture about the organization. Thus add a great value to employee satisfaction.
