About the Index

The Global Employee Engagement Index™ is an extensive bi-annual employee survey conducted across 56 countries with over 18 000 respondents. Employees answer numerous questions related to engagement including workplace, well-being, alignment to organizational goals, leadership, colleagues, future intentions and role clarity. The Index has proven to be a relevant and accurate source of information that helps organizations to understand the differences in the workplace across countries and continents.

It provides a comprehensive benchmark for multinationals and solves the dependency that organisations currently have on reference company benchmarks. It does this by ensuring the data remains accurate and a uniform point of reference for the entire survey journey.
