10. Appreciation

Factors of employee engagement

For employees, appreciation is a determining factor for commitment and job satisfaction. It is the positive emotional reward that people receive for their efforts and hard work, from their direct managers, colleagues and other members of the organization. Appreciation is not monetary and remains important throughout the employee's life cycle.

It is one of the 15 drivers in the scientific Employee Happiness Model®.

Employee Happiness Model > theme job

This theme is about what an organization can offer the employee in exchange for their work and the commitment that contributes to the overall performance of the organization. This can be about intrinsic factors (e.g. appreciation) and extrinsic factors (e.g. monetary).

By measuring how satisfied employees are with the four drivers in this theme, you discover in which ways they get satisfaction from their work and how you can (continue to) motivate them

See how it works!

  Correct recognition and appreciation are essential for motivating employees. Financial incentives in themselves are not enough.
