An employee engagement survey is a tool designed to measure workers' feelings about how their employer utilizes their expertise and talents. The tool seeks to evaluate the extent to which employees feel passionate about their jobs by measuring pride and enthusiasm in the organization's mission and vision.
By conducting an employee engagement survey, employers know how and what to change or improve. These surveys are designed to find areas that need to be addressed including employee motivation, involvement or emotional commitment.
Demotivated and disengaged employees are more likely to steal from their employers, negatively influence colleagues and discourage clients. It is, therefore, critical for employers to know how passionate the workers are in the organization's mission. This engagement and pride determines the quality of output and whether customers are having positive experiences. Engaged employees are also more productive and creative.
