Improve employee engagement through drivers
It is important to gain insight into what makes your employees enthusiastic, happy and productive. What are their motives? You can find this out by scanning the 15 factors of engagement. But you can’t do everything at once. So first focus on the theme where you think the most impact can be achieved, simply or quickly!
Employee Happiness Model > theme people > social values
Together with the drivers Leadership, Relationship with Colleagues and Relationship with Direct Manager, Social Values help form the theme ‘People’ in the Employee Happiness Model and the measuring method of 2DAYSMOOD.
This theme is all about people who work in the organization who are motivated to achieve success. The creativity, productivity, vision and motivation that employees give keeps an organization positive and alive! It is striking that most organizations can often make the biggest and most urgent improvement here. By finding out how employees think about the four drivers in this theme, you will discover to what extent they can be themselves and have healthy relationships at work (and how you can improve this).
The EHM consists of four themes: Organization, People, Work and Wellbeing. Curious about the other themes and drivers? Download the whitepaper
