Do your opinions seem to count? Does the mission/purpose of your company make you feel your job is important? Have you had opportunities at work to learn and grow? Comments 11 | Recommend 676
ive years ago, The Gallup Organization began creating a feedback system for employers that would identify and measure elements of worker engagement most tied to the bottom line--things such as sales growth, productivity and customer loyalty. After hundreds of focus groups and thousands of interviews with employees in a variety of industries, Gallup came up with the Q12, a 12-question survey that identifies strong feelings of employee engagement. Results from the survey show a strong correlation between high scores and superior job performance. Here are those 12 questions: * Do you know what is expected of you at work?
* Do you have the materials and equipment you need to do your work right? * At work, do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? * In the last seven days, have you received recognition or praise for doing good work? * Does your supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about you as a person? * Is there someone at work who encourages your development? * At work, do your opinions seem to count?
* Does the mission/purpose of your company make you feel your job is important? * Are your associates (fellow employees) committed to doing quality work? * Do you have a best friend at work?
* In the last six months, has someone at work talked to you about your progress? * In the last year, have you had opportunities at work to learn and grow?
