At Effectory, we’re often asked to explain the difference between employee engagement and employee commitment. Engagement is an intrinsic attitude that denotes an employee’s enthusiasm for his or her job. Commitment, on the other hand, denotes an employee’s enthusiasm for the company he or she works for.
To provide insight into the level of engagement and commitment within an organisation, we categorise employees into four types: engaged and committed, engaged, committed and neither engaged nor committed. The four types differ in the following way:
We believe that the best case scenario is when an employee is engaged in the job and committed to the organisation. If an employee is only engaged, there is the distinct risk that they are not committed to the organisation, and vice versa.
Engaged employees make additional effort, learn more, and faster, and are more creative
As an HR theme, engagement is a good indicator of customer satisfaction, retention, productivity and profitability. It takes committed and motivated employees to an even higher level, focusing on company goals and achieving the results that are expected of them.
Engagement enables your organisation to deliver a superior performance and to gain a competitive advantage. Engaged employees make additional effort, learn more, and faster, and are more creative. In addition, engaged employees are your organisation's ambassadors.
