What is Employee Engagement?
Employee engagement plays a strategic role across the UNT System. Strong engagement increases emotional or psychological commitment to the UNT System and its campuses, and motivates faculty and staff to do their best work while contributing to organizational success. Employee engagement is about the connections we have with our work and workplace and the relationships we build with the people we work with. Relationships and connections are important to our well-being and our commitment to what we “do.” Engaged employees have a personal connection to the success of the organization. Engaged employees are psychologically committed to their work, go above and beyond their basic job expectations, and want to play a key role in fulfilling the mission of their organizations.
Gallup defines engaged employees as those who are involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work and workplace.
If engagement’s focus on connections and relationships has you thinking this is not a topic for you, then stop and consider this: commitment determines how hard employees work and how long they stay. Engaged employees lead to higher levels of performance, and higher levels of retention.
