Employee Engagement Overview
Employee Engagement, Strategic Alignment, & Performance
Performance = Engagement x Alignment x Competency
Employee Engagement Survey
Actionable results is the name of the game here. Very short employee engagement surveys that contain just a dozen or so items can do a great job of identifying whether you have problems with engagement, but they will leave you with more questions than answers. This means the survey itself is only the first step in the discovery process. It will need to be followed by focus groups, expensive consulting, and/or additional follow-up surveys in order to get a clear picture of what is really going on.
Virtual Focus Groups - A Customized Survey for Each and Every Employee!
We take "actionable results" to another level by asking targeted follow-up questions in the areas that are most relevant to each employee who completes the survey. This means our employee engagement survey probes deeper into the specific issues that are of concern to each one of your employees.
The company shown here has strong engagement overall with the exception of one area - Teamwork and Cooperation.
Employees whose responses indicated that "teamwork and cooperation" was weak were asked to elaborate on the nature of the problem as well as proposed solutions to the problem. The company received several pages of detailed written comments that enabled them to better understand the issues and also suggested some ways to fix these issues.
Numeric results and comments can also be viewed for specific demographic subgroups, which will enable you to isolate and target localized problems within your organization.
This is where things start to get exciting!
Employee Engagement Dashboard - Probe Deeper with Powerful Analytical Tools
The Employee Engagement Dashboard enables you to quickly and clearly identify not only global engagement themes and issues within your organization, but more importantly, what parts of your organization are "at risk" due to specific, localized engagement problems.
Scalpel vs. Sledgehammer
In our experience, most engagement issues are local. Companies sometimes have broad-based problems that need to be addressed company-wide, but regardless of how a company is doing overall, there are always things happening further down in an organization that are having a negative impact on engagement within a specific department, location, workgroup, etc. The employee engagement dashboard will enable you to instantly identify these problem areas within your organization so you can take action more quickly and with greater precision.
This is the analysis tool that the big consulting firms wish they had... and wish you didn't have since it makes most of the work they do obsolete.
