Employee engagement is one of the most important objectives for today's HR leaders. We know we need it. We know we want it. We know it boosts our bottom line. But what isn't always clear is what drives it, and how to get it. Connecting with employees effectively can be a mysterious puzzle at times. What is important to them? What would motivate them to work more productively? What makes them feel valued? There is, thankfully, a better way than tea leaves or crystal balls. Globoforce-the world leader in employee recognition-surveys fully-employed workers in the United States twice a year to answer those very questions. Our aim is to gain more insight into people's attitudes and perspectives on employee recognition, appreciation and engagement. By capturing the current mood of the U.S. workforce, we can examine broader trends in recognition and job satisfaction. The goal of this report is provide you with invaluable insights that can be used to craft strategies that will unify and engage your workforce and culture.
