Factors that influence employee engagement – Motivation and engagement factors

Being treated with respect is the most important factor

Employees worldwide say that being treated with respect is the most important factor, followed by work/life balance, type of work, quality of co-workers and quality of leadership (see figure).

While other financial factors, such as benefits and incentive pay, can be important to other aspects of the employment deal – such as attracting, retaining and rewarding employees – Mercer’s research shows they are considered less important by employees when it comes to their day-to-day motivation and engagement at work.

Motivated employees are an asset to all organizations

Motivated employees are an asset to all organizations. They propel the organization forward by positively influencing the work climate, attitudes, customer orientation and, ultimately, organizational performance. So do remember:

You don't build a business - you build people - and then people build the business

You don’t build a business – you build people – and then people build the business
