In Q1 2014 we ran a webinar called How to Improve Employee Performance and Engagement. During the live session (which we recorded), we asked attendees two questions:
Rate the level of employee engagement at your organization
The majority (66%) said employees at their organization were "engaged", and the dominant reason was "professional development" (66%) followed by "recognition" (50%). For this question we allowed participants to choose more than one answer.
Main reasons for employee engagement
It was the response to the second question that was particularly telling, and really helped solidify the case for building a culture of continuous learning through tracking and incentives. Employees respond to opportunities that benefit both the organization and themselves. Clearly, organizational growth goes hand-in-hand with individual development.
