We have had some success with hierarchical regression models and path analyses here with our research team at the University of Lousiville, but I agree with David, controlled studies would be an outstanding addition. Correlational research has had its day. It is time to get deeper!! Best of luck Harish!

It would be wonderful to see more controlled studies with experimental and control groups. We have enough survey data about correlations but I would love to see drivers put to the test with random assignment.

Hi Nadika,

The following reseach might be helpful to you which is about the dynamic spread of happiness. Although happiness and engagement are clearly distinct things I suggest there are correlations between happy employees and engaged employees. This reserach describes how an individuals happiness is dependant on the happiness levels in their social network. From my experience I believe the same is true of engagement.

I would also recommend you read the book Viral Change by Leando Herrero

Good luck!

Hi All,
This network is very helpful. The insights of the contributors is very helpful.
I'am currently doing my undergraduate dissertation on this area.
I'am intersted in the area of Crossover engagement. But I'am finding it difficult as to measure it quantitatively (whether one engaged individual or group can actually have an impact on the engagement of another?????)
Would appreciate if you could please share your thoughts on this aspect.
Further, I'am finding it a bit difficult to find appropriate literature on this area. If any relevant literature is available would tou please share it with me?????

Regards and Thanks

What type of longitudunal data (other than Gallup) on Employee Engegement is there?
Is there a consensus on the % for these categories to be "world class"? Fully engaged, engaged, not engaged, disengaged?

I love seeing the research! My dissertation study was a 90-day learning intervention for work engagement. I was wondering if anyone in the network is also studying interventions? Here is a very short synopsis of my study:

The purpose of the study was to measure the effects of a specific learning intervention designed to enhance the capabilities of frontline managers to increase the level of work engagement at the business unit level in a small manufacturing firm in south Mississippi. The study answered the call of researchers for the investigation of interventions that evaluate the impact of innovative management practices on work engagement (Bakker, Schaufeli, Leiter & Taris, 2008). Test group immediate managers in the firm’s Production business unit participated in a 90-day learning program founded on the five self-coaching skills outlined by Flagello and Dugas (2009), while the control group immediate managers in the Maintenance business unit did not. In the context of the firm’s highly dynamic organizational environment, including a disruptive plant fire, the researcher suggests the intervention was perhaps more preventive in nature; helping the Production frontline managers and their direct reports fare better than their Maintenance business unit counterparts during a period of high organizational stress. The researcher recommends that practitioners integrate measurement and evaluation into interventions that tie work engagement to on-the-job performance indicators and meaningful business outcomes. Researchers are encouraged to (1) conduct additional research into interventions for work engagement; (2) explore Utrecht Work Engagement Scale, or UWES ("UWES", 2003; Schaufeli, Baker & Salanova, 2006) intervention research applications that measurably link the psychological construct of work engagement to meaningful business outcomes; (3) use intervention research to move towards a more common, practical engagement construct; one that ties together the preconditions, psychological factors, behavioral outcomes, and business results of engagement. This investigation supports the future study and application of work engagement interventions to raise the level of organizational performance in a wide variety of settings.

The shortest Employee Engagement survey has one question | Leandro Herrero
And the question is: ‘Why are you still here?’ You learn about the organization by asking questions to employees when they leave you (exit interviews) but you learn far more when you ask them why they are staying (‘stay’ interviews).
