Top 10 Drivers of Employee Engagement

Top 10 Drivers of Employee Engagement

Before I took a spin around the track in a race car last summer, I needed some knowledge and training that would help me navigate the track and reach the winners circle. It was critically important that I knew what to focus on and how to do it. The same holds true for leaders.

Here are the top 1o employee engagement drivers that leaders must focus on:

  1. Confidence in the organization’s future
  2. A promising future for oneself
  3. Organization supports work- life balance
  4. Contribution is valid
  5. Excited about one’s work
  6. Opportunity for growth and development
  7. Safety is a priority
  8. Leadership has communicated a motivating vision
  9. Organization’s corporate social responsibility efforts increase overall satisfaction
  10. Quality and improvement are top priorities

The four overall factors that consistently drive employee engagement are:

  • Leaders who inspire confidence in the future
  • Managers who recognize employees and emphasize quality improvement
  • Exciting work with the opportunity for growth and development
  • Organizations that demonstrate a genuine responsibility to their employees and communities
