In times of economic crisis, companies must often resort to cost-cutting measures. More often than not, this means reducing their best assets: the employees.

But staff reductions leave employees feeling disengaged. Recent studies have shown that employee engagement levels have dropped significantly since 2008. According to Gallup, more than two-thirds of American workers are "not engaged" or "disengaged" with  their workplaces due to the uncertainty of the economy over the past two years (Read: State of the American Workplace).

This leads to a loss of creativity and innovation. In an uncertain environment, people who are unengaged aren't going to speak up about issues they encounter or bring in new ideas. As a result, productivity really suffers, impacting the bottom line.

So how do you keep employees engaged in uncertain times? How do you optimize someone’s productivity during uncertain times?

Here are 3 ideas that have worked for other companies.
