How To Supercharge Your Employee Engagement Strategy
Employee engagement, trust in management, and positive culture have always been key pillars of healthy organizations and productive teams. These pillars of employee engagement and organization trust become even more vital during periods of uncertainty, change, and business or economic slowdowns when leadership really needs the team to pull together.
The difficult circumstances of 2020 have certainly created hardships and tested the morale of even the most positive employees and teams. The shift to remote work for many workers can make them feel isolated and disconnected. Did you know that employees who feel their voice is heard are 4.6x more likely to feel empowered to perform their best work? If your organization does not have a proactive, consistent, and digital employee engagement strategy, now is the time to put one in place.
ClearCompany’s new Employee Engagement Suite provides all the essential tools you need to build a consistent, effective, digital, and social engagement strategy that supports employee engagement and retention.
Our employee engagement tools are fully integrated with our other talent management software modules and have been designed to make it easy to promote employee engagement, build trust, solicit employee feedback and track morale, and strengthen peer and manager-employee relationships and communications. This provides crucial support during a time when 63.3% of companies say retaining employees is actually harder than hiring them.
Our Employee Engagement software suite supports:
- Employee Recognition
- Employee Engagement Surveys
- Real-time Goal Tracking and Feedback
- Social Celebrations of Employee Personal Milestones
- Social Sharing Tools
37% of employees consider recognition the most important thing a manager or a company could do that would help the employee be successful. Shout Outs, our peer-to-peer recognition tool makes it fun and easy to share team successes, recognize employee accomplishments, send thanks, and promote positive employee behavior. Publicize employee wins and let co-workers chime in and congratulate peers through the social newsfeed.
