Employee engagement surveys for small and midsize organizations

Mercer | Sirota Engagement Snapshot Survey

Employee engagement is a top concern for CEOs and HR leaders around the world. Surprisingly, the Mercer Talent Trends study reports that executives are not getting the type of engagement information they find valuable. In order to build a thriving workforce, organizations – regardless of size - need to measure employee engagement levels in order to understand what’s working – and what’s not.

Gain insight. Unlock potential.

Whether you are looking to understand how your employees feel about working remotely or their experience related to inclusion and belonging or something else entirely, a Mercer ENGAGEMENT SNAPSHOT® survey helps you measure employee engagement using a proven, research-driven model. Leveraging over 40 years of experience in employee research, this survey instrument is delivered online and uses a set of predefined dimensions and items to get at the validated drivers of engagement. All items are linked to our best in class global normative database, making for easy comparisons to benchmarks. And with results in as little as one month, quickly move from planning to action.

Why Does Employee Engagement Matter?

Talent plus employee engagement equals performance graphic

Employee performance (productivity and results) is the combination of individual talent (capability, likability, drive) and engagement (pride, motivation, commitment), meaning the best way to maximize talent is to ensure it is engaged talent. By measuring engagement, Mercer ENGAGEMENT SNAPSHOT® survey helps clients to identify the opportunities to improve the performance potential from their talent.

Dynamic Alignment Model

Serving as the framework for engagement survey question development, the Mercer Dynamic Alignment Model fosters high performance by aligning strategy, leadership, employees, and managers.
