Maritz Motivation Solutions has launched the Engagement Potential Index (EPI), a new and innovative assessment for executives and HR practitioners to measure their company’s current culture and engagement potential against industry benchmarks. The EPI is a tool to understand your culture and identify areas for improvement; develop a tailored roadmap for the success of engagement programs; and benchmark and assess progress within your company.
“Employee engagement is a recognized key performance indicator of thriving organizations. Unfortunately, global employee engagement is at an alarming low rate, costing employers millions of dollars.

- Contribution awareness (Appreciation for effort and achievement)
- Advocacy (Taking action to support or recommend)
- Wellbeing (Being comfortable, healthy and happy)
