INFOGRAPHIC: What your employees care about

Employee engagement is a business buzzword that keeps popping up – and for good reason.

Employee engagement focuses on what's important to your employees and what makes them feel they are making a difference at your organization.

New research from The Workforce Institute at Kronos Inc. and WorkplaceTrends.com shows workplace conditions that can really make a difference with employees. Here are a few key findings:

  • They want more appreciation: more than half employees surveyed said they get a high sense of satisfaction from verbal and written appreciations and affirmations.

  • It's okay to be social: Almost 2/3s of employees said that having friendships at work increased their performance.

  • Health programs are a hit: 1/4 of employees believed that offering health benefits and programs is essential to a retention strategy

  • Onboarding matters: Less than 15% of those surveyed said they had gone through a formal onboarding plan. [No onboarding program? No worries, you can download one for free here.]
