The Walden 2.010 Project (Week 5)
What percentage contribution towards employee engagement
would you attribute to each of task, role, and organization?
Daily employee engagement. This is a weekly reporting of a one year project monitoring, measuring, and assessing daily employee engagement. You can see the original project plan, intention, measures and tools by clicking here.
Week 5. This was a week of highs and lows in engagement. Day 2 and Day 3 were the highest scores I have had all year in engagement and Day 4 and 5 were the lowest.
Assessment and Review. Teaching continues to a major contributor to my own engagement. Social media work on Days 4 and 5 were the lowest days in engagement. I can get quite engaged in the moment in social media work but the overall contribution to engagement is not as strong as my education work.
Conclusions and Recommendations. I am becoming more keenly aware of the cost of high levels of engagement. I may have a couple of very engaged days but then I seem to compensate with lower days. I will be interested to see if this trend continues during the year.
Employee Engagement Overall Take-away. At the risk of sounding like a Mini Marcus Buckingham I believe it is imperative that we help employees determine their strengths by defining strengths as what engages them. The nature and type of my work has had a huge influence on engagement this past week.
