Employee engagement has become increasingly mainstream in management thinking and employee research over the last decade. It proposes a mutually beneficial relationship between employer and employee – creating a win-win situation for both parties.
There is a lot of research that highlights some of the key benefits of engaged employees:
- Happiness and fulfilment
- Better performance
- Better results
What is the difference between employee engagement and employee satisfaction?
The difference between employee engagement and employee satisfaction comes down to motivation.
Employee satisfaction is all about an employee’s happiness and contentment at work. While this is an important metric, it doesn’t always give a true indication of their motivation. For example, an employee may be happy and content, but they might not be performing to the levels they used to.
Employee engagement asks the question of whether someone is truly engaged and emotionally invested in your organisation – including your goals, values, building relationships with colleagues and their own personal development.
Employee engagement surveys are used by HR departments across the world to assess their employees’ commitment and motivation at work.
It’s not just about how happy they are – but how motivated they are to make a difference.
