Engage: Our Benchmarking Data

Contents

Introduction

Our framework Includes benchmarks, by industry and company size. Many of our preset questions come with benchmark data, allowing you to compare your engagement scores and engagement driver scores to the average of other companies...

in your industry:

  • Fortune 500
  • Technology
  • BFSI
  • Retail
  • Hospitality
  • Hospitals
  • Healthcare (minus hospitals)
  • Manufacturing
  • Non-profits
  • Professional Services

and of your size:

  • < 500 Employees
  • 501-2500 Employees
  • 2501-5000 Employees
  • 5000+ Employees

Our benchmarks for each {industry x size} segment are based on panel data collected from a randomized set of 1,200 US-based employees, combined with data collected from our 60+ customers (150,000+ employees). We will update our benchmarks every quarter as more data is collected.

In addition, going forward, our Engagement model and benchmarks will be tested every 6 months with our partners at NYU for reliability (with "alpha" statistic and with factor analysis).
