How to measure and improve employee engagement

This week, we announced our new Limeade Engagement Dashboard — designed to measure and improve employee engagement.

What is engagement?

At Limeade, we define employee engagement as a deep connection and sense of purpose at work that creates extra energy and commitment.

People often confuse job satisfaction or participation with employee engagement. But that burst of energy you feel actually comes from being engaged in your work — not just with how satisfied you are while you’re there or how often you participate.

How do we measure employee engagement?

Unlike other traditional engagement measurement tools, the Limeade Engagement Dashboard highlights data in real-time and uncovers actionable new insights. It measures employee engagement and the main drivers — such as work-life balance, positive relationships, work meaning and more — that impact employee engagement based on Well-Being Assessment data.

Employers can review and manipulate interactive charts to understand population trends across countries, locations, departments and a dozen more tags. By identifying at-risk groups and the drivers that negatively impact engagement, you’ll know where to target your program efforts to increase employee engagement.

What does this look like?

Imagine you’re a VP of Benefits at a national retail chain with the goal of increasing employee engagement. With the Limeade Engagement Dashboard, you’re able to identify groups with low engagement as well as the main drivers for it.

For example, you notice large stores have lower engagement due to high stress and low work-life balance. Limeade then partners with you to launch targeted solutions — whether it’s tailored communications, targeted activities or recommended resources. This enables you to customize your engagement strategy by location.
