Employee Engagement Report

Reimagining organizations by devising an innovative model that encourages productive, fulfilled, and engaged employees.

The Impact of Covid-19 on Employee Engagement research study is a two-part report series that examines the ways in which the global pandemic affected and continues to affect employee engagement in the U.S. American workforce.


This report is based on Workplace Peace Institute’s research which was conducted to support organizational leaders in creating workplace cultures of peace and dignity during times of extraordinary disruption and change. Peace exists in the workplace when all employees experience human security. Human security is the fulfillment of basic human needs such as psychological safety, security, including cultural security, belonging, self-esteem, personal fulfillment, participation, and the acceptance of identity. Dignity exists when all employees experience their inherent worth and value.

These findings and recommendations reflect employees’ feedback on how they experienced basic human needs and dignity needs in the workplace and how that impacted employee engagement during the period between March 2020 and March 2021. The report focuses on U.S. American employees who shifted from an in-office work life to a remote work life during the pandemic. The report is intended to give leaders a clear understanding of what is necessary for all employees to thrive during periods of extraordinary workplace disruption, change, and social isolation.
