Employee Engagement Survey

Employee Survey: Employee Engagement Survey

I have read a lot of articles lately professing that you should not measure employee engagement, that’s right, stop the employee engagement surveys…the employee surveys.  Now the reasons seem to range from reasoning that there are other measurements that tell a story about employee engagement such as employee retention or the number of new ideas or products that are coming out.  I do agree that these measurements may shed some light on employee engagement but they probably only tell part of the story.  For instance you could have high retention of employees due to other factors than employee engagement, such as a great pension plan or an environment where employees have quit but stay for the pay and perks.  As well employee attrition may be the result of poor employee engagement, but it is usually one of the last signs and by that time your organization is in trouble.
