Employee Engagement: Who Said That?I just read an interesting article on employee engagement. Actually, I have read several dozen articles on employee engagement and they are all interesting. Here is where this one was different; the authors endeavored to define the term. Interesting! Important point: Engagement should not be confused with satisfaction or commitment. Two Important Components of Engagement: • Feelings of engagement (focus and enthusiasm) • Engagement behavior (proactivity and persistence) Notice… there is a distinction between engagement and satisfaction:
- Engagement is energy, not satiation
- Satisfaction is satiation and contentment, but not energy
