Nurse managers should be able to create trust and use integrity to build mutual respect and credibility with the staff. The nurse manager must keep their word and follow through with what they say they are going to do to build trust and maintain integrity.

When an employee has trust in their manager-employee engagement improves. Another best leadership practice is to improve employee engagement. This is done by providing rewards, recognition, and opportunity to advance in one’s career. It is vital to guarantee informal rewards, formal rewards, and put recognition programs in place to measure improvement results. It is extremely important to express gratitude by offering rewards to those whose performance exceeds the unit and organization benchmarks.

When other staff members see their peers' achievements, they will also start to strive for success, thus improving employee engagement.
