Measuring the Connection between Employee Engagement as Traditionally Defined by HR and Employee Engagement in Sustainability

Engaged employees lead to better business outcomes. As companies look for ways to boost employee engagement, they are focusing on job purposing — the concept of linking an organization’s purpose and an individuals’ job to societal contribution. And, job purposing increasingly includes sustainability-focused employee engagement. However, despite the rapid evolution and uptake of this practice, many companies still struggle to create meaningful sustainability-focused employee engagement programs and to measure the impact of those programs in ways that demonstrate their value and resonate with decision makers. This session aimed to address these challenges by sharing best practices along with research results identifying the top drivers of sustainability engagement as well as its relationship to employee engagement as traditionally defined by HR departments.
