Moving Beyond Employee Engagement: The Employee Experience Index

Employee engagement is often viewed as the proxy for employee well-being. The line of thinking is that if engagement is good, that means employees are good, resulting in better business outcomes for employers. But, is employee engagement the best construct that employers should use to positively impact productivity and performance?

New research suggests while engagement is important, it’s only one piece of the broader picture—the entire employee experience. In reality, people want to work for a company that enables them to bring their full selves to their job and helps them grow and thrive. Creating this kind of workplace goes beyond just ensuring that employees are engaged—discovering the ingredients that create the most positive employee experience, then creating the conditions to cultivate them. When companies enhance the employee experience, business benefits directly.
