Why should you run employee engagement surveys?
To boost your company's performance
When you take a closer look at your teams' working conditions, their well-being and their working relations, you're making a direct impact on your company's performance:
- 45% turnover reduction,
- 41% less absences,
- 43% productivity increase.
Besides increasing the company's profitability, employee engagement improves its organizational system : more cooperation, more dialogue, and more individual and collective initiatives. The positive impact will also shine through your employer brand.
With regular engagement surveys, you'll be able to target first-line actions to implement.
To develop employee engagement at every level
Within teams, a QWL survey promotes open dialogue between employees and managers. These dialogues enable companies to tear down barriers, avoid concerns being left unsaid or the accumulation of repressed frustrations. Whether it's about giving or gathering feedback, reflecting on actions to improve collaboration, managers will benefit from concrete elements to help them tackle key subjects.
Emmanuelle Greth, HR Director of Guerlain, has been using Pulse surveys for the past three years. Since, she noticed that employees’ voices have been liberated, and teams are now able to express their concerns.
Asking for employees’ opinions on subjects which directly concern them gives them a feeling of recognition and lets them know that the company listens to their needs. It's particularly important during trial periods as 65% of new employees continue to look at job offers over the three months following their recruitment.
