What is Employee Engagement?

Employee Engagement is defined as "a measurable degree of an employee’s positive or negative emotional attachment to his or her job, colleagues and organization, which profoundly influences their willingness to learn and perform at work."

The UCSB Library works to create an environment that values and supports employee engagement and promotes a healthy organization by developing internal programs and events for Library employees.

Goals for Employee Engagement include:

  • Develop programs and hold events that improve and maintain high morale for all employees at UCSB Library.
  • Encourage, recognize and celebrate employees’ achievements, learning, and growth in open forums including but not limited to developing an employee recognition program and bestowing awards for good, organizational-citizenship behaviors.
  • Actively solicit employee feedback, evaluate, and recommend strategies for improving employee engagement.
