The big takeaway from this fascinating article, Engagement Around the World, Charted, is that people who work on teams are significantly more engaged than people who are not.
But note the diagram above: working from home also makes people more engaged.
All managers and HR groups should take a look at this and proceed accordingly if they want higher employee engagement.
The 10 questions are from this article: The only employee engagement questionnaire you’ll ever need and it is the kind of thing a manager would ask employees. But really, they are the kinds of questions you should be asking yourself.
I like the first three:
- Why are you still here?
- What would make you leave?
- Where would you be if you weren’t here? (What company would you really like to work for?)
The other seven are good too.
Anyone working anywhere should ask themselves these questions regularly.
