Ten Engagement Factors for Employees

In This Chapter

arrow Considering respect, pay, benefits, and progression potential

From an organisational perspective, having an engaged workforce is good news because it means that employees are more likely to work hard and produce good results. In this chapter, we summarise some of the things that can help keep you feeling engaged with your job, meaning that you feel motivated and satisfied at work.

The well-respected Mercer group has developed a table of engagement factors through a survey conducted in seven large countries (China, France, Germany, India, Japan, the UK, and the USA). This group explored a range of engagement factors; we list their top ten, in order of preference, in this chapter. These factors are the aspects of your job that make you feel the most engaged, and the areas you should pay attention to if you’re a manager who wants to increase engagement levels in your workforce.

All these ten engagement factors are important in different configurations for different sectors as well as different countries. If employers invest in these areas, they get the returns of enhanced wellbeing, health, and job satisfaction, which ultimately translates into better performance.
