Employees Define Their Own Visions of Employee Engagement

It’s no secret that employee engagement is a major priority, especially to business leaders. They understand that people who are engaged with their work are also passionate about their work. This intersection of passion and performance is where organizations begin to not only realize the positive business results of employee engagement initiatives, but also positive employee experiences.

The path to achieving employee engagement is full of tried and true best practices, with listening being a key component of any strategy. While technology will always be the vehicle that empowers businesses to truly hear the voice of employees, we thought it would be fun to ask a few of our employees what employee engagement meant to them. This is what they had to say:

Rachel A. | Project Manager II

“Employee engagement means that employees feel like they make a difference and that they matter so they will go above and beyond to make sure the organization is successful. They take pride in their work so when the organization is doing well, then they are effective.

Sam B. | Engineering Team Owner I

“To me, employee engagement means being part of a group of people who care for and support each other continuously. It is this support that has allowed me to thrive and reach goals I didn’t think were attainable just a few years ago.”

Ashley G. | Sr. Customer Communications Specialist

“Employee engagement means being allowed to bring your whole self to work. From running the Ulti Book Club and being part of an UltiCouple, the real me shows up to do a job I love every day and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Danny P. | Audio Visual Engineer ll

“Employee engagement feels like working with a family where you’ve got their back and they always have yours.”

Sylwia P. | Payment Services Launch Specialist II

“Employee engagement means a healthy work culture and happy employees. It builds strong bonds throughout the organization that last forever and promotes a healthy work environment with a sense of belonging.”

Finding Inspiration in a Changing World

And as the world changes around us, our employees are reminding us all to stay grounded in that which inspires us every day.

Regardless of your role or responsibility, we’d like to know what employee engagement means to you. How are you and your people staying inspired today? Comment below with your definition or experience.
