Drawing on the collected experience of more than a decade on the market, we know that feedback is essential for employees and companies alike to build a strong company culture.

With this in mind, we created kununu engage.

The concept of employee engagement is often confused with satisfaction or happiness, but the true definition is deeper in meaning. Employee engagement is defined as the level of an employee’s psychological investment in their organization.

Engaged employees are those with a personal connection with your company and its success, and they’ll go the extra mile to achieve it. Employees that are not engaged lack the motivation to invest extra effort, and if they are actively disengaged, they are not only less productive at work, but also spread negativity to other coworkers.

The Problem:

Disengagement is the norm. 85% of employees worldwide are not engaged or are actively disengaged in their job. 

There is a big potential hidden in every workplace. When we are able to better understand our organizations and build a culture that engages more employees, the benefits include:
