    which verb to choose: involve, encorage

    Hello averybody!

    There willl be competitions organised, the purpose of which is to find a solution in terms of safety of work.

    What I would like to say is that we involve employees in these competitions.

    Does this sentence "we involve employees in these competitions" sound good to your ears?

    Maybe it would be better to say "we encourage employees to actively participate in these competiiotions".

    The literal translation by google of the sentence is "We engage employees to actively participate in these competitions, but I do not think it is a good idea.

    I would stick to "we encourage employees to actively participate in these competiiotions". What is your opinion on that?

    Thank you.

    I can assure you that this is not a gap filling exercise.
