Employee engagement consists in motivation to work and productivity. It is characterized by a desire to take on challenges and progress daily, but also by efficiency at work and a good team dynamic.
Employee happiness also includes job satisfaction and employee wellbeing. Your teams’ level of satisfaction will often depend on the work climate, managerial and organizational flexibility, professional development, the recognition they receive, the benefits they get, company core values and meaningful relationships with coworkers or managers… All of these elements contribute to employee wellbeing and increase their sense of belonging.
These two aspects of engagement more than often depend on one another. Engaged employees will work better and stay with you longer, improving both your productivity and your retention rate. Therefore, having engaged employees is essential to achieve success, and you need to make sure you maintain employee morale and motivation daily.
Before building a strategy to optimize levels of employee engagement, you need to know how to clearly measure this key indicator.
