Why organizations should care about employee engagement
Employee engagement is about building workplaces whose employees:
- Are motivated to help the organization succeed
- Are committed to their organization’s goals and values
- And feel that their own well-being is taken into consideration
Effectory is committed to every organization improving their employee engagement. This isn’t only good for employees, it also boosts an organization’s productivity and profitability. The best way to increase engagement is by listening to your employees, learning from their feedback, and leading innovations. You can use our Return On Investment calculator to figure out exactly how financially beneficial boosting employee engagement through a continuous listening strategy will be for your organization.
How you can improve employee engagement
Engagement can be increased when employees are provided with clear guidance and a clear vision, and are motivated and encouraged by leaders who set a good example. When you start working to improve engagement, you help your employees grow, stimulate their creativity, and perform better.
Do you want to know where you stand when it comes to employee engagement? You can measure the levels of engagement you have already cultivated and act on employee feedback with Effectory’s listening solutions and agile reporting dashboard.
Adapting your listening strategy to your organization
As our Global Employee Engagement Index™ advises: don’t forget to adapt your strategy to your (changing) situation. Because each organization’s situation is different, the results of an engagement survey will differ, but the steps that can be taken to enhance engagement based on employee feedback are the same for every single company and industry.
With feedback you stay on top of what your employees think, feel and need. And with these insights, you can take the right actions to improve, innovate and grow your organization.
Post-COVID listening strategies for an engaged workforce
A continuous listening strategy will prove vital for any organization embracing a hybrid or fully remote working model. It is also essential for those workplaces, such as in healthcare and education, where things are “going back to normal” when they can. This is because organizations in this sector are dedicated to retaining talent and keeping employees motivated. Making sure that employees feel safe, secure and healthy is also a top priority.
Employee engagement only increases in relevance as traditional working structures become less common. Listening to employees is a tried and tested method to ensure that any future hiccups and surprises are dealt with by resilient and engaged employees.
