What are Focus Areas?

Focus Areas are the engagement drivers that have the biggest impact on your organization's or a group's engagement. Using a combination of influence and score, drivers are intelligently selected as Strengths or Struggles. These areas can be used to target issues and guide action efforts to improve engagement.


Strengths represent what is going well for your group and contributing to engagement. Survey responses indicate that employees recognize these as positive aspects of their work environment. Keep up your efforts in these areas!

Struggles are the areas that require the greatest focus for your group. Based on the score of these drivers and their influence on engagement, improving these areas should have the most impact on increasing the overall Engagement Score.



More data about your Focus Areas, including the driver score and change since the last survey, is available in the Engagement Drivers table.

Sometimes you may notice that a driver with a positive score may display as a Struggle. This is because this driver highly impacts engagement, and even though the score is positive, improvements in this area will likely have the greatest impact on engagement.
