What’s more important to career happiness and engagement on the job? (Engagement being HR-speak for ‘giving a darn.’ )
Productive and collegial relationships with co-workers. That’s according to the latest employee engagement research from the Society for Human Resource Management. The top factors for engagement are:

- 75% – Opportunities to use skills/abilities
- 72% – Contributing to organization’s goals
