Best Practices in Assessing Employee Engagement

Once an organization believes that a more engaged workforce is better for customer loyalty, revenues and profits, the next logical step is in measuring current engagement to set a benchmark, and then regularly (at least annually) re-measuring engagement to chart progress. The challenge lies in getting the measurement right. Organizations must bear in mind that the tools they choose to assess engagement in year one will be the foundation upon which future data is set. If the data collected is not right or is missing important elements, it will have to be revised or even discarded. Doing so is potentially time consuming and expensive. The EEA and Avatar HR Solutions examine the key drivers of engagement and the benefits of surveys, tools, data collection and analysis. For the full report, click here... [ read more ]

Survey: Employees Less Loyal Than They Were 5 Years Ago

Management’s view of a key aspect of engagement is not very favorable at this point. More than half of managers (52%) consider their employees less loyal than five years ago, according to a survey of more than 1,200 executives and managers by the American Management Association (AMA). Just over one-third (37%) perceive employees to be about as loyal as they were five years ago. The most telling statistic: Only 11% view employees as more loyal. This trend is even more pronounced among organizations with more than 1,000 employees. Just over 60% of respondents at large organizations consider employees to be less loyal than five years ago, compared to 44% of respondents at firms with fewer than 1,000 employees. Other highlights from the survey: • Declining employee loyalty is thought to harm organizations by causing low morale (84%), high turnover (80%), disengagement (80%), growing distrust (76%) and lack of team spirit (73%). • One-third (33%) of senior leaders believe employee loyalty has a direct link to profits.

7 Steps to Measure and Build Engagement: How to Keep Line Managers Interested and Involved

Employee surveys have the potential to help companies understand the relationship between human capital and the bottom line. Yet, if not managed carefully, surveys may fail to realize their potential as strategic organizational tools. Why? Because many organizations are successful in designing reasonable questionnaires, generating high participation rates and gathering a lot of good information. But where survey processes most commonly break down is in the “hand off” between a survey team, perhaps working with the assistance of an outside consultant, and line managers throughout the organization....

Mercer Survey Shows Declining Employee Loyalty

Employee loyalty is dropping around the world, according to new Mercer’s What’s Working survey. The research, conducted among nearly 30,000 employees in 17 geographic markets between the fourth quarter of 2010 and the second quarter of 2011, shows that the percentage of workers seriously considering leaving their organization has risen since the last time the survey was conducted in each market (prior to the economic downturn). In many markets, the increase is 10 percentage points or more. In the U.S., the increase was 9 points, from 23% in 2005 to 32% in 2010. According to Pete Foley, PhD, a Principal at Mercer and North American Employee Research Leader, “The overall employment deal is in a state of flux around the world, with employees rethinking what they want out of the employment relationship. Our research shows that, despite the ongoing economic uncertainty, more employees would consider leaving today for a better opportunity.” For a complete summary, go to http://inside-employees-mind.mercer.com/press-releases/1430455...

New Market Report Says Corporations Spend $720 Million a Year on Improving Engagement

The Oakland, CA-based HR research firm Bersin & Associates recently released a market focus report on employee engagement showing that organizations currently invest approximately $720 million annually in engagement improvement, including both outsourced and internally developed programs. The report, Employee Engagement: Market Review, Buyer’s Guide and Provider Profiles, describes a number of key trends, including: Providers do not agree on how to define employee engagement. In fact, definitions vary dramatically, with elements including commitment, goal alignment, enjoyment, performance, and the antithesis of “burnout” – to name just a few. Buyers need to define what employee engagement means for their organization and select providers that align with that definition. Market innovators are integrating engagement into all HR functions. HR leaders increasingly are focused on aligning engagement efforts with business strategy, and they are also integrating engagement with HR programs and organizational operations. From recruiting to building a leadership bench to alumni relations, innovative providers are helping their clients infuse engagement into every step of the employee lifecycle. Global specialists are rare. As organizations expand their geographic footprint, few providers are equipped with resources around the world to handle international clients who have more than 50,000 employees. “Big Data” and analytics are on the rise. While most of the engagement providers reviewed in this report offer some way to measure the relationship between engagement and organizational performance, only a few have moved into a new frontier – HR analytics. Since HR analytics enables organizations to optimize workforce performance and fuels continual improvement efforts, buyers should consider their requirements in this area carefully. A free WhatWorks Market Brief titled Employee Engagement: Behind the #1 Metric is available here. A PDF of the full report costs $995. For more details, click here.... [ read more ]
