Alignment – fit between individual and organizational values
Commitment – loyalty and intent to stay with the organization
Contribution – level of discretionary effort employees are willing to make (i.e., going above and beyond).
Appreciation –awareness employees are valued and their effort to support the organization’s goals is appreciated
In seeking to measure engagement along these four factors, we developed the Employee Engagement Indicator (EEi). The EEi is a 40 question survey with 10 questions per factor. The total score is intended to indicate an overall level of employee engagement on a continuum from full disengagement to full engagement. Sub-factor results can also be analyzed (e.g., level of contribution).
While we are still researching the psychometric properties of the EE-i, preliminary results have been interesting and have demonstrated how a low score on one of the factors can drastically impact overall engagement results.
