Employee engagement is a workplace approach resulting in the right conditions for all members of an organisation to give of their best each day, committed to their organisation’s goals and values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, with an enhanced sense of their own well-being. Employee engagement is the extent to which employees feel passionate about their jobs, are committed to the organization, and put discretionary effort into their work.
Purpose of an Employee Engagement
Employee engagement is the extent to which employees feel passionate about their jobs, are committed to the organization, and put discretionary effort into their work. Employee engagement is not the same as employee satisfaction. Employee Satisfaction only indicates how happy or content your employees are.
While commitment refers to employee’s satisfaction as well as identification with the organization, engagement goes a step further, involves the employee`s discretionary efforts towards attainment of organization`s goals.
Importance of engaged employees for organization
Better engagement means better productivity. Corporations whose employees are engaged perform better than companies whose employees are not by over 200%. When employees are engaged at work, they feel a connection with the company. They believe that the work they’re doing is important and therefore work harder.
When it comes to measure the engagement the first pre-condition is confidentiality. All participating employees should be sure of the confidentiality. Thus, we suggest Employee Engagement Survey externally manage to ensure confidentiality. On the other hand, deep expertise and experience is required to avoid biases. Many surveys ask employees how they feel – how motivated or engaged they are at work. Some ask about the factors that help or hinder their work. The Employee Engagement Survey (EES) is unique because it does both. EES is a powerful tool which helps you measure and analyze the levels of engagement and enablement your employees are experiencing. It presents these comprehensive findings in a clear report and shows how engagement & enablement levels vary across the organization.
The results from the EES will give you the valuable information you need to identify the factors preventing employees from performing at their best. And by addressing these barriers to performance, your organization can then create a more positive environment, which leads to quantifiable business improvement.
