The Employee Engagement Team within Human Resources works to understand and improve how staff navigate and experience their journey with CRS. It supports and advocates for an employee experience that celebrates the potential of all CRS staff and offers staff the opportunity to work with meaning and grow with purpose, in a caring community that empowers their pursuit of excellence. The team does this by:
· Creating meaningful opportunities for staff connection and community-building
· Facilitating the recognition and celebration of staff and their accomplishments
· Providing a motivating, useful, and kind welcome/orientation to new & transferring staff
· Continuously listening and learning from staff, including understanding and addressing the “sticking points” that frustrate staff
· Deepening staff connection with the “why” behind their work
· Celebrating CRS’ Catholic identity
These functions require strong internal communications to be successful, using a variety of media (e.g., audio, video, internal social media, visuals). For example, the team recently launched an internal podcast. Meanwhile, events coordination is critical to ensuring staff gatherings happen smoothly and maximize their potential to build community.
