Engagement is based on what we have and do; Culture is what we have, do and BE.
Do you know why you measure Engagement?
At our recent culture clinic, we asked a room of 50 professionals “How many measure Engagement?” nearly all hands were raised. Then we asked “Who here measures Culture?”, only ten hands remained. Our final question sealed the deal, “Who measures both Engagement and Culture?” more hands went down. Of all the people in the room, only three people measured both Engagement and Culture.
When employers are too focused on measuring employee engagement, deliberate workplace culture strategies tend to fall by the wayside.
