FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IDG Research Services now offers Total Employee Engagement Solutions (TEES), the first research program that expands employee satisfaction surveys to include the measurement of personal engagement and motivation levels using The Motivation Factor® Index. Organizational thought leader, Helle Bundgaard, CEO of Motivation Factor® (www.motivationfactor.com), designed The Motivation Factor Index based on recent developments in brain research and neuropsychology to help organizations understand and promote personal engagement and motivation to achieve business goals.
“IDG Research Services has found that traditional surveys can measure how effective an organization is at satisfying employees, but the surveys don’t capture how effective employees are at managing their own engagement and motivation to achieve the organization’s goals,” said Janet King, general manager/VP, IDG Research Services. “Partnering with Motivation Factor® enables us to expand the scope of traditional employee satisfaction surveys to better under understand employee perspectives so they are more willing to work toward employer objectives.”
The Motivation Factor Index was developed as a way to measure how well individuals are able to manage their own personal motivation and engagement as defined by Motivation Factor’s Hierarchy of Motivation Model. This Model illustrates how a person’s ability to become self-motivated, integrate new learning, and handle change increases proportionally to an individual’s position on the Motivation Factor pyramid.
The underlying philosophy behind the Hierarchy of Motivation© is that, in order to achieve lasting motivation, people must:
- Identify and act on the things that drain their energy.
- Understand the impact of and be accountable for their needs.
- Apply and leverage their innate talents.
- Become purpose-driven in their contributions, goals, and choices.
The Motivation Factor Index measures individual, team and organizational abilities in each of these areas giving IDG Research Services the information to combine with employee satisfaction surveys to offer a true total employee engagement solution. Combining traditional organizational metrics with insight into the underlying capability to self motivate, organizations can now take action like never before to create high-performance teams and achieve greater individual and organizational results.
“Any organization that conducts employee opinion or satisfaction surveys has an opportunity to gain a more complete picture of its organizational health,” said Helle Bundgaard, CEO of Motivation Factor. “Organizations are inundated with information about how organizational leadership, work environment, and management practices affect engagement. But little information exists about how to inspire and sustain personal motivation and engagement toward organizational goals. ”
