What is Employee Engagement?
Retention and employee engagement are critical issues for businesses and leaders. Australian workplaces are amongst the worst in the world when it comes to engagement and satisfaction. With only 14% of people engaged in their jobs, assessing engagement is vital to ensure you have an engaged workforce.
Employee engagement embodies the emotional commitment an employee has to their organisation. Employees who are engaged in the workplace have a high level of enthusiasm, motivation and passion towards their role.
Engaged employees are motivated to put in extra effort for their organisation and are eager to make a difference. Top employees care about their work and positively influence the performance of the company. They are generally more energised by their environment, maintain positive mental health and contribute to innovation efforts.
Why is employee engagement important?
Organisations with an engaged workforce outperform their competitors. Engagement strategies reduce staff turnover, help retain top talent, increase productivity rates, and improve workplace culture. Importantly, staff are happier at work and in their personal lives.
Employee engagement assessment
The most effective way to obtain feedback and accurately measure employee engagement is by using an employee engagement survey. Feedback from the survey can demonstrate what drives employee engagement in your organisation.
Use surveys to collate open-ended questions to delve deeper into employee feelings. Uncover why employees might be distracted and disengaged at work and gain qualitative insight and detail into the reason behind employee engagement scores. Analyse open-ended questions to identify key themes and emerging issues within the workplace to respond appropriately.

Employee productivity assessment
Many organisations use DISC profile assessments, but many do not realise what a valuable resource they can be when it comes to engaging a workforce. Behavioural assessments provide unparalleled insights to help organisations better understand and connect more effectively with their workforce, raising engagement and productivity.
Using DISC, leaders can discover motivators to put in place in an employee's environment to help increase their level of motivation and productivity. Leaders learn how to delegate tasks in the most efficient way possible and overcome the time wasted with miscommunication.
Using an Extended DISC® assessment can help uncover valuable insights about an individual. DISC describes why and how people behave the way they do and how to increase their productivity levels.
Engagement and productivity tools
Engagement and productivity levels can vary widely across an organisation within different teams, departments, and locations. Surveys help identify the level of employee engagement organisation-wide as well as identify at-risk employee populations. Surveys reveal areas in which employees are satisfied or where they need extra support and attention. Use these trends to make informed development decisions to improve productivity and retain staff.

How can you increase employee productivity?
Businesses rely on teams to tackle projects in many different business areas. Misunderstanding, miscommunication, and personality clashes decrease team productivity levels. These issues force leaders to spend time mitigating and resolving conflict. Instead of being focused on their current project, these issues distract teams and waste time.
One of the most effective strategies to facilitate teamwork is to promote an understanding among the members of your team. DISC assessments provide objective data on each team members preferred behavioural style. Once team members are aware of their style and the style of others, they can learn to adjust their behaviours to others' DISC styles. As they gain knowledge of the DISC styles, the team will experience more productive and efficient interactions.
DISC assessments also help leaders assign project tasks based on the natural behavioural preference of their team members to enhance team productivity. Play to the inherent strengths of your team to improve project efficiency. Furthermore, generate an Extended DISC Team Analysis to gain information to motivate team members and identify potential barriers to productivity.
