Many pollsters regularly measure and report on employee engagement. Gallup does so regularly.
Gallup deems workers as “engaged” based on their ratings of: “key workplace elements that predict important organizational performance outcomes, such as having an opportunity to do what they do best each day, having someone at work who encourages their development, and believing their opinions count.”
That’s all well and good, but I think what they’re actually measuring are the employees’ experiences. Do they have friends and mentors on the job? Are their contributions recognized? Are they encouraged to participate in decisions and are their ideas and opinions respected?
What kind of engagement experiences are you creating for your people?
