Measuring Employee Engagement
Much has been studied about the impact of employee engagement on company performance, and there is general agreement that increased engagement drives results. The field of people analytics is opening the door to much better data, and there are more direct measures for businesses to better understand how to measure employee engagement levels. For this activity, you will measure your engagement in your place of work, by analyzing the following:
– The amount of work that occurs outside of normal working hours (e.g., evenings and weekends). – The number of network connections and time spent with people outside of immediate team or region. – The percentage of participation in ad-hoc meetings and initiatives vs. recurring meetings and processes. – Time spent collaborating directly with customers outside of normal scope of work.
This approach allows you to measure actual engagement rather than self-perceived engagement. Further, you can deploy several additional metrics to understand what may be driving your engagement levels at work.
Using MS Word, create a 2 -3 page document describing how tasks are measured in a selected company. Include your analysis (positive or negative) of the company managements actions.
