Employee Engagement Drivers
Engagement drivers have been the subject of exhaustive research. Opinions differ and diverge, but the drivers distill into four distinct elements:
- Achievement - Getting things done
- Affiliation - Associating with others
- Affluence - Power, respect, control, influence
- Autonomy - Work-life balance, freedom
What do Employees Want?
Employees are individuals, each unique as snowflakes or grains of sand. But employees are persons, possessing common desires in unique proportion.
People want to get things done, with others they like, and they want to gain respect, influence and control of their lives . . . and they want to be able to turn off the cell phone from time to time!
So what do my employees want? And what precludes or inhibits those desires? Or, to consider those questions at a strategic level: What are the barriers to engagement in my workforce? And what is the cost in terms of minimal performance and missed opportunity?
The employee engagement survey uncovers the barriers to better engagement. And a Perceptyx engagement survey also builds the drivers of engagement into the observations and recommendations used in manager action planning, providing targeted solutions for identified problems.
The result is a proven model of increased engagement and organizational performance. When the barriers to success are identified, they can be surmounted, and, soon, (sorry Mick) satisfaction is on its way.
