Survey finds companies think higher of engagement than employees

Sometimes, senior personnel don't recognize the need for employee reward and recognition programs to improve motivation and productivity, believing staff members to be satisfied and inspired.

Sometimes, senior personnel don't recognize the need for employee reward and recognition programs to improve motivation and productivity, believing staff members to be satisfied and inspired.

An informal survey by Inc. magazine columnist Paul Spiegelman, which garnered more than 350 responses, illustrated this point. Specifically, the more senior the staff member responding to the survey, the better he or she perceived employees' engagement levels to be.

Similarly, the longer a person has worked for an organization, the better his or her perception of the company culture will be. For example, individuals with 11 to 15 years of experience at a business ranked employee satisfaction the most highly, ahead of those with five to 10 years at a firm.

Overall, the survey found there is plenty of room for improvement when it comes to employee engagement. Out of a maximum score of 100 points, the average score among respondents was 57, indicating that company leaders may want to revamp motivational strategies.

The incentive initiatives available to businesses vary widely. Firms can offer anything from verbal praise to healthcare deductions, dinners and awards.
