The Truth About Employee Engagement

The Truth About Employee Engagement takes on the universal problem of job dissatisfaction. The model presents managers with a practical, new approach for engaging employees in order to maximize their potential. According to numerous studies, an employee's relationship with their direct manager is the most important determinant to employee satisfaction, more than pay, benefits, perks and work-life balance. We offer various products and services as well as free tools to help increase employee engagement.

* The Truth about Employee Engagement was originally published as The Three Signs of a Miserable Job

The Concept

The job misery model gives managers a framework and tools to engage, motivate and retain employees by eliminating the three primary causes of job misery: Anonymity, Irrelevance and Immeasurement. At first, these three causes may seem obvious and easy to resolve. Yet, often remain unaddressed by even the most well-meaning managers. Those willing to make the commitment will enjoy a loyal, productive and enthusiastic workforce that will be a differentiator in today's competitive landscape.

  • Anonymity

    People cannot be fulfilled in their work if they are not known. All human beings need to be understood and appreciated for their unique qualities by someone in a position of authority.
  • Irrelevance

    Everyone needs to know that their job matters, to someone. Anyone. Without seeing a connection between the work and the satisfaction of another person or group of people, an employee simply will not find lasting fulfillment.
  • Immeasurement

    Employees need to be able to gauge their progress and level of contribution for themselves. They cannot be fulfilled in their work if their success depends on the opinions or whims of another person.
