At Weekly10 we believe employee engagement goes beyond motivation and simple job satisfaction. It is a combination of commitment to an organisation and its values as well as a willingness to help colleagues.
The idea of employee engagement therefore is to focus on mutual gains within the employment relationship, i.e seeking the good of employees (job satisfaction and wellbeing) and the good of the organisation (performance outcomes and commitment etc).
What are the benefits of engagement?
Everyone knows that feeling engaged is evidently good for employees. Most definitions of engagement include descriptions of employees who are happy, healthy and motivated, with research repeatedly finding measures of engagement going hand in hand with higher effective performance. What we have also found at Weekly10 using our AI is other positive relationships between aspects of employee engagement and business metrics, such as productivity, innovation and staff retention.
