Why Listening Across The Employee Journey Is Vital To The Bottom Line With Questback Employee Touchpoint

Why listening across the employee journey is vital to the bottom line

CAT: Employee Engagement  

The world of work is changing fast. The relationship between organizations and skilled talent has shifted, with employees now in control. They are increasingly mobile, less loyal and more demanding of their employers. And, with barriers to switching jobs much lower, they can afford to be selective in who they work for.  At the same time their skills, ideas and experience are ever-more central to business success in our increasingly competitive, knowledge-based economy. In fact, if you’re not already doing so, now is the time to start treating your employees more like your customers.

Your corporate culture is at the heart of how your organization operates. It affects all the decisions that you make and ultimately whether your strategy succeeds or fails. Employee engagement, motivation and retention are all linked to how your people respond to your culture. Yet, every company’s culture is unique – so how do you ensure that yours is supporting your objectives?

Taking An Always On Approach To Employee Engagement

Today, companies understand that the skills, experience and knowledge of their employees is central to success. Employee engagement is vital, and this means listening to them and acting on the insight they provide. But at a time when markets are changing fast relying solely on old-style employee engagement tactics such as annual surveys will not provide the up to the minute insight that companies require. 

Continuous Employee Feedback Is Essential To Understanding The Employee Journey

Continuous Employee Feedback Is Essential to Understanding the Employee Journey

CAT: Employee Engagement  

Most companies know it’s vital to understand the customer journey, and many of them invest a lot of resources in gathering customer feedback to improve that experience. Like customers, your employees also undergo a journey, from when they join your organization all the way through to when they leave. Their needs and feedback will be different across this lifecycle. As employees are a vital part of a successful business, it is likewise vital that companies focus on listening to their feedback at specific stages of the journey in order to understand how they experience the journey. Annual employee surveys simply won’t capture this feedback quickly enough or in sufficient granular detail. It is time for companies to adopt new ways of listening.

How To Integrate Employee Engagement Into Day To Day Business Operations Qyestback Blog

How to Integrate Employee Engagement into Day-to-Day Business Operations

CAT: Employee Engagement  

At Argyle’s 2017 Human Capital Forum in San Francisco (#ArgyleHR), Questback’s President Carol Lee Andersen discussed how employee engagement is transforming from annual surveys into an integrated measure of business operations, offering human resource leaders a new opportunity to secure the delivery of critical outcomes in close collaboration with business leaders. This transformation is technically enabled by four distinct methods to measuring engagement – the ‘scheduled’ approach, the ‘process-based’ approach, the ‘on-demand’ approach, and the ‘always-on’ approach. Together, these four approaches to measuring engagement create a hardwired feedback backbone in businesses – an integrated stream of continuous feedback that provides first-hand insight into operations.

Proper Whistleblowing Mechanisms are a Requirement. Just Ask Uber.

CAT: Employee Engagement  

Uber is not a stranger to the headlines – positive and negative. Illegal car hires in Hong Kong, union bid blocking in Seattle, the search for a second executive, and internal discrimination and harassment allegations, Uber appears to be struggling with employee and customer challenges – perhaps unsurprisingly given its rapid, global growth. While customer experience receives most of the attention, employee engagement and customer experience are two sides of the same coin. It comes down to how a business engages with and manages its relationships with people, leveraging their insight to deliver better experiences on both sides. And, in doing so, improve the method in which they operate their business.

Why Employee Engagement is Fundamentally Changing

CAT: Employee Engagement  

The increasingly complex problem sets and the dependency of solutions on relationships between people have given rise to a new era of business technologythe Internet of People. This impacts employee engagement too. Employee engagement has traditionally been operationalized as annual employee surveys with rigid follow-up cycles that both managers and employees find frustrating and see very little value in. The Internet of People, built around soft data, will change this. Employee engagement is transforming into an integrated measure of how businesses operate, offering human resources leaders a refreshingly new opportunity to secure the delivery of critical outcomes in close collaboration with business leaders.

Is Employee Insight Less Valuable Than Customer Insight

Is Employee Insight Less Valuable than Customer Insight?

CAT: Employee Engagement  

Customers and employees are vital to your organization’s ongoing success. Most firms recognize the importance of delivering a superior customer experience, attaching a high value on understanding and improving that experience across a growing number of touchpoints. Yet many seem to neglect employee insight. Employee insight, by contrast, seems undervalued and poorly appreciated. Many organizations are still stuck in an annual cycle of employee engagement surveys and performance reviews that don’t link with wider business objectives or provide timely, actionable employee insight. 

It’s fair to say that most companies know way more about their customers than their employees - despite the vital importance employee engagement holds for business success. What best practice learnings can HR take away from the customer experience world to enhance employee insight strategy?

The case for the customer journey has never been stronger. Matched with innovative technologies, analytics, and clear ROIs, companywide focus and investment have been extensive. Once disjoined departments are now aligned; bridges span traditional silos; and cohesive CX programs have been implemented to ensure a seamless customer journey that meets and exceeds the customer’s needs. But, in our focus on the customer journey, have we missed a crucial element? Have we missed the forest for the trees?

The Lead Developer Conf Ny

Leading The Lead Developer to Success when Creating Enterprise Technology Solutions

CAT: Employee Engagement  

It is a known truth that the success of any project, technical or otherwise, lies in its implementation. The translation from idea into reality is a crucial phase; one that holds the power to derail a plan entirely or ensure a great success. For enterprise technology solutions, the delivery and implementation phase is not only central to achieving your goals, but also has a ripple effect, impacting employees, customers and often, the bottom-line. 

What is the key to a successful implementation phase? Do enterprise technology solutions require a different approach? Behind any piece of technology, especially great enterprise technology solutions, is a team. A team of technical programmers, developers and consultants that translate ideas into reality in very tangible terms. These people, who in many ways are shaping the way technology could impact our lives, matter; their insights and technology feedback matter.
