The Science Behind Employee Engagement & Officevibe

Unleashing the Power of Engagement

We did a ton of research into what actually motivates people at work, what's really important for employees, and what managers are really interested in seeing and improving.

Based on survey results, interviews, research into Gallup, Gartner, and other industry leaders, we came up with science-based research to back up why we're doing what we're doing.

We distilled all that research into what's listed below.
