Employee engagement is a heightened emotional and intellectual connection that an employee has for his/her job, organization, manager, or coworkers that, in turn, influences him/her to apply additional discretionary effort to his/her work.
An annual engagement survey can establish a baseline engagement score, and better understand the workplace conditions that will enable your employees to do their jobs more effectively, and which initiatives will improve overall employee engagement.
Clearly, engagement and commitment can potentially translate into valuable business results for an organization. To help you reap the benefits of an engaged and committed workforce, an engagement survey report will provide guidelines for understanding and measuring employee engagement, as well as design and implement effective engagement initiatives. As you will see, everyday HR practices such as recruitment, training, performance management and workforce surveys can provide powerful levers for enhancing engagement.
