What is employee engagement?
When we first look to join a company, we may be enticed by some salary promises, the company brand, or cool perks. Important? Of course. But these factors—we call them “satisfaction elements”—don’t make us stick around. They don’t mean we’re engaged in what we do. Engagement goes beyond satisfaction. Engagement occurs when we find meaning, autonomy, growth, impact, and connection—MAGIC—in what we do.
The five keys of employee engagement stems from two decades of research, gathering and analyzing feedback from tens of millions of employee survey responses in over 70 countries.
