Session 602: Know Your Employee Engagement Score!

Thursday, April 23 at 4:00 PM

View Schedule

There's no universal definition of employee engagement, yet everyone seems to know what it means. How can this be? Although the term hasn't been rigorously defined, there seems to be universal agreement that employee engagement and employee job satisfaction are highly correlated. But they're not the same thing. Employee engagement is a complex set of behaviors driven by numerous practices that can be hard to quantify. These include employee recognition, wellness, personal growth, training, coaching, team huddles, and relationship with peers.

Despite the fact that the underlying drivers of employee engagement are subjective, they can be quantified and managed. Moreover, these underlying drivers can be leveraged to produce an employee engagement scorecard! In this session, attendees will create their own employee engagement scorecards, and will know their employee engagement score by the end of the session!
