What is employee engagement?

Investing in employee engagement is not just some hippie idea about employee happiness and satisfaction. It’s more than that.

There is a lot of different and conflicting information out there about employee engagement. But it has a lot to do with mental and emotional connections shown in commitment towards your company. 

We love this definition provided by Emma Bridger (Author of the book Employee Engagement):

“Employee engagement is defined by the willingness of your employees to continually go that extra mile for the company because you managed to make success a matter of personal pride for them.”

How employee advocacy can influence employee engagement

You may think that employee engagement and employee advocacy are 2 different things, but actually, they are very connected. After all, engaged employees are the best ambassadors your company can wish for: they are happy and satisfied at work, so they are more inclined to talk about your company in a positive light. 

On the other side (and now it becomes very interesting), successful advocacy programs can also help and boost employee engagement in your organization.
