Fingers on the employee engagement Pulse
According to Gallup polls around two in three employees are not engaged. Engaged employees lead to better business outcomes. In fact, according to Towers Perrin research companies with engaged workers have 6% higher net profit margins, and according to Kenexa research engaged companies have five times higher shareholder returns over five years.
Current tools to improve engagement like employee engagement surveys are ineffective because of lengthy action planning and little to no action post surveys. Other tools like rewards and recognition programs and wellness programs are one dimensional in nature since improving employee engagement needs a balanced approach to multiple engagement factors like freedom and flexibility to work, alignment of company vision with employee work, relationship with manager, communication and recognition among other factors.
Pulse is a technology platform which improves engagement while developing managers in leadership skills. It solves two problems of employee engagement and leadership development in one platform. Pulse takes a balanced approach to improve engagement and focuses on all engagement factors to improve engagement. To improve engagement, an organization needs better managers. When managers have better leadership skills, improving employee engagement becomes easier.
Pulse encourages employees to add real-time feedback and ideas based on our employee engagement model. Managers develop leadership skills through action learning when they work on implementing these ideas and feedback throughout the year. With sophisticated action planning tools, managers can work on implementing employee ideas and feedback easily. This helps in continous improvement in employee engagement and leadership development. With this tool, you can see better ROI for your employee engagement initiatives and also leadership development programs.
Pulse (patent pending) is based on the organisation’s employee engagement model, adult learning theory, collaborative leadership, situational leadership theory, problem based learning (PBL) or action learning, and proprietary software.
