Start measuring employee satisfaction and establish a great workplace where everyone is given a voice. Deploy employee engagement surveys and increase productivity.

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT SURVEYS INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

High employee productivity leads to business profitability and growth. Globally, only 15% of employees say they’re highly involved and enthusiastic about their work and workplace (Gallup). A staggering 41% say they’re less productive due to stress (Colonial Life). This suggests companies need to take immediate action to ensure the wellbeing of their employees.

There’s evidence to suggest that collecting feedback from your employees can increase their satisfaction and engagement. According to Salesforce, employees who are listened to are 4.6 times more likely to feel empowered to perform their jobs well.

So, in 2020, invest in real-time employee engagement software to help you find out how you can boost employee happiness and productivity. Ask your employees if they understand their job roles and have enough resources to perform their jobs well. Have they received sufficient training, and does their manager appreciates them? All of this contributes to their productivity levels and motivates them to go the extra mile.

BENEFITS OF EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT SURVEYS

Employee feedback surveys, otherwise known as Voice of Employee (VoE) surveys, provide an important aspect of anonymity. No matter how well employees get on with their manager, some may not feel comfortable giving completely open feedback. Touch-screen survey kiosks, placed away from the senior management and CCTVs, encourage honesty. Anonymous feedback helps identify issues and training needs for the management team.

VoE surveys save time. In larger companies it might be problematic or time-consuming to regularly speak to all employees about their experiences and commitment.

Collecting feedback from employees once a year isn’t enough. Shorter employee engagement surveys provide real-time data all year round. Therefore, you can address issues immediately, improving employee performance and productivity.

By deploying Voice of Employee surveys, you show your employees that you care about their well-being and value their opinion. Appreciated and listened to employees are more likely to stay with the business longer, share their ideas and drive innovation.

You can change employee engagement surveys around the holidays or sale periods to learn about specific issues, staffing levels or how you can improve productivity during busy times.
