Employee Engagement is simply defined as the level of enthusiasm and dedication a person feels toward their workplace.

The Engagement Award measures how enthusiastic and dedicated employees feel toward their workplace.

Workplace Culture is simply defined as the shared attitudes and characteristics of people at a workplace. It's the way people act when together.

The Culture Award measures employees' awareness of their culture and their perceptions about their workplace culture.

Learning & Development

Being the best at something is a source of pride for employees. Feeling competent and able to get things done improves morale and creates a sense of accomplishment.

The Learning & Development Award measures how supported employees feel in their job and career. It also measures how interested they are in a long future at their workplace.


Productivity is simply defined as getting things done. The origin of the word means "to produce." Successfully getting things done at work feels good. Productivity and job satisfaction are often very closely aligned.

The Productivity Award measures employees' perceptions of how much gets done, how much their workplace supports getting things done, and how motivated they feel to get things done.


Leadership is simply the action of leading a group of people. In a workplace, leadership is the action of leading a group of people to get things done in alignment with the workplace purpose.
