An Employee Survey Is Not Employee Engagement
Over the last number of years the terms satisfaction, engagement, survey, assessment have become interchangeable when discussing employees. This is wrong. We need more than the shades of gray that employee satisfaction surveys provide about how employees are feeling.
Surveys offer only a snap shot of how an employee felt on a particular day. The way I often describe it is that employee engagement is not a project or an annual campaign, but rather a program. There's not beginning or end. Engagement is every day.
Once you've assessed employee engagement, one of the best ways to actually address engagement is to get employees involved. We’ve seen first hand what can happen when brainstorming sessions - as an example - are moved out from behind closed doors to a collaborative platform where there is no limit to participants or ideas.
