What is Employee Engagement?

Our brief definition:

“The level of connection, motivation and commitment a person feels for the place
they work”

And our short primer:

  • Engagement is more than just job satisfaction or feeling happy at work
  • Engagement is broader than single metrics such as eNPS (Employee Net Promoter Score)

We often use 5 questions reflecting these concepts:

  • Recommendation
  • Motivation
  • Pride
  • Present Commitment
  • Future Commitment
