What are influence bubbles?

Influence bubbles show how much influence individual Engagement Drivers have on your organization's Engagement Score— that is, how important/correlated the Driver is to the engagement of your employees.


A big, filled-in Influence bubble indicates that the Driver is highly correlated with engagement at your organization, and changes for this Driver are more likely to impact your Engagement Score.

A small Influence bubble indicates that the Driver is not as well correlated with engagement at your organization, and changes for this driver are less likely to influence your Engagement Score.


How the score is calculated

Influence bubbles are based on statistical analysis (Pearson bivariate correlation), between the individual driver and the organization's Engagement Score, just using results for this survey. A Driver's Influence is only calculated at the organization level and will not change as you look at different filters or groupings in your results.


If your organization mostly employs at-home caregivers, you may notice that the "Coworker Relationships" Driver has a low score and its influence bubble is small. This could be because statements in the EngageSurvey about Coworker Relationships might not be as applicable to engagement for your employees. They likely knew when they were onboarded that they were committing to working alone and, as a result, didn't expect to be close friends with their coworkers. In this case, Coworker Relationships aren't paramount (or highly correlated) to their engagement, so the Driver's Influence will be small, even though its score is low.
