How to work on employee engagement

Employee Engagement: It has been demonstrated in various studies that, having a team of professionals that are committed to carrying out their work has a direct impact on the company’s profits. Companies with committed employees have 2.5 times more revenue according to Hay Group’s 2019 study. according to Gallup, companies with engaged employees are 21 percent more profitable.

A committed employee is not one who is just happy to work for their company. A committed engaged employee is one who shares the company’s vision, finds meaning in the work he or she does, and is willing to voluntarily go above and beyond what is being asked of him or her.

Who wouldn’t want to have workers like that on their team?

But that reaches our next point: How can you know if your employees are committed to your company’s cause?

Knowing the level of commitment that an employee experiences with a company is becoming a strategic insight for the effective and successful management of people. In this article we tell you how you can work on gaining committed employees:

Step 1: Measuring employee commitment is the first step to improve it

The most actionable way to measure employee commitment is by asking them, through pulse surveys. In Happyforce, we use pulse surveys to measure employee’s commitment. We do this by analyzing from the most obvious factors, such as workload, to the most abstract factors, such as the level of autonomy an employee feels they have. These are some factors we use to determine the degree of employee engagement.

These pulse surveys are quickly becoming the most efficient way to measure engagement because of their frequency and the ability to understand in a global vision sense of how employees feel about your company.

Step 2: Based on the results, we have to analyze

Through the Happyforce’s pulse surveys, we provide you with accurate, real time data from your employees. This data is automatically analyzed so that you can create your ideal action plan suited to your employees needs.

We share with you some ideas that you could do depending on your results:

  • Improve and/or establish policies for conciliation between personal / work life.
  • Public and private distinctions.
  • Working on training and career plans.
  • Working on autonomy at work.

Regardless of the results, the benefit is that you will be able to customize your plan and measure the impact of your actions.
