Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is a workplace approach designed to ensure that employees are committed to their organisation’s goals and values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, and are able at the same time to enhance their own sense of well-being.

Components of Employee Engagement

Everyone’s looking for the recipe for employee engagement. How do you get motivated

workers? To start, think about the six components to Employee Engagement listed below:

1. FIT

Is the employee a FIT with the organization–its culture? Is the purpose of the organization meaningful to the employee? Are the values of the organization in harmony with the employee’s values?

Is the employee a FIT with the job? Does the employee feel one’s work is significant and is t he

best use of one’s abilities?


Do you have a trusting workplace where people feel their leaders have integrity–they’re honest

and fair? Do employees respect their leaders?


Does work feel like family? Is collaboration/teamwork encouraged? Do employees have friends at work?


Do you have ongoing, open, two-way communication? Do employees feel like leaders/managers listen to them? Is information freely shared?


Does the organization support individual development? Do employees have challenging assignments? Does the workplace encourage achievement and mastery?


Do employees have autonomy? Do they feel involved? Do they participate in decision making? Is work flexible?

When employee’s human needs are met, they are more engaged.
