As the HR manager for your organization, you’ve recruited, on-boarded and oriented your employees towards becoming a productive part of your workforce. But, your job isn’t done yet. Your executive team has been discussing the merits of engaged employees—increased productivity and performance, reduced turnover and costs, and a healthier and happier life outside of work—and they’ve tasked you with making it happen. That’s where the employee engagement survey come in.
Where to start?
Before you go off and make changes to improve your environment, you have to understand the current mindset of your employees. To start, ask the right questions: How engaged are they? What are their biggest challenges? What do they like or hate about their jobs? What is discouraging them from going that extra mile?
Employee engagement isn’t always easy to achieve, but it can be reliably measured and systematically improved with the right tools. An employee engagement survey is a cost-effective way to reliably measure engagement across an entire organization, and create an open dialogue between staff and management. An effective engagement survey will identify your organization’s unique drivers of engagement, your strengths and the areas for improvement.
