Organizations are continually challenged to identify ways to increase employee engagement. While changes in benefits, rewards, and compensation are often considered the best solution, engagement results seldom reflect significant improvement. Thus, the problem persists and organizations are not achieving their potential for enhanced engagement.
You can measure (and the Harrison Assessment™ does measure) intrinsic behavioral factors that drive individual engagement — employee motivators and attitudes. Most importantly, once you have this understanding you can also empower the manager to have that conversation with an employee, by sharing, “Here’s what you bring to your expectations from the organization.” This is a “shared responsibility” conversation, one that can increase employee engagement immediately, by:
- Identifying gaps between employee expectations and motivators.
- Facilitating the essential dialog between employee and manager.
- Fostering a shared responsibility for engagement.
- Creating a culture of engagement.
