Every New Year, people around the world make resolutions to improve themselves in the upcoming year. Making resolutions is a good idea for employers, too! One area of improvement that always benefits an organization is employee engagement, since year after year, studies show that businesses with higher engagement also perform better.

1. Help employees connect with the organization's mission and values
2. Promote transparency – establish a culture of trust
