Employee Engagement

Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is a workplace approach designed to ensure that employees are committed to their organisation’s goals and values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, and are able at the same time to enhance their own sense of well-being.

People Development Australia has a number of services and programs to assist you with your employee engagement needs. This includes:

  • Interactive awareness workshops
  • Provision and administration of employee engagement surveys.
  • Assistance with employee engagement strategy development
  • Leader and supervisor development
  • Employee Engagement focus groups

Employee engagement is the extent to which employees feel passionate about their jobs, are committed to the organisation, and put discretionary effort into their work. Our services help you target all three areas of the employee engagement cycle.


Our Employee Engagement Survey Process

1.Tailor the survey: We provide you with our library of questions to choose from and work with you to identify the questions you’d like to ask. We also identify any free-text questions you want along with the reports you will need.

2.Create project implementation plan: We work with you to identify all the relevant parts of the survey initiative and create a project plan with relevant activities, responsibilities and timeframes.

3.Communications, launch and monitoring: We help you craft communications for the project and launch the survey in the business. We provide regular updates on response rates and help you communicate with various parts of the business to maximise them.

4.Analyses and reporting: We analyse your data and create your reports.

5.Debriefings: We help you present your company data to your executive team and facilitate discussion around areas for improvement and actions to take.


Survey Questions

We have a standardised and benchmarked model of employee engagement as described on the previous page. Beyond this, we don’t believe there is a particular model of culture or organisational effectiveness that fits all organisations. Rather we work with you to identify areas of culture and effectiveness most important to your organisation and it’s future. To this end we have an Organisational Effectiveness Question bank (or library of questions), from which we work with you to form your survey. All our questions have been conceptualised by PhD qualified psychometricians. Our survey can also include any particular questions you have that you want included and free text questions. Below is a list of the variables that we have questions for in our question bank.
