Employee engagement is about motivation and interest, while employee satisfaction deals with morale. High employee engagement makes employees hard workers and fierce advocates for their company. Employee satisfaction, on the other hand, is more about a personal sense of happiness at work. If an employee is satisfied with their job, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll go above and beyond.
Of course, engaged employees may have higher satisfaction scores, as feeling motivated makes it much easier to genuinely enjoy what you’re doing.
"The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.”- John Maxwell
