How can smart data change the way we measure employee engagement?

Traditionally, it seemed to get feedback from employees was simple - human resources would send out a quarterly survey asking for feedback and suggestions on how to make company culture better and post-damage exit surveys were used as a way of figuring out how to better utilise company resources - it’s a tedious process we know about all too well and doesn’t yield successful results other than the response rate or a number on a Likert scale.

According to Peakon, engaged employees have 37% fewer sick days, 30% higher productivity and every 1% increase in engagement results in a 0.6% increase in revenue. 

So how do today’s organisations get these numbers out of their own workforce? 

Rather than employee engagement being a ‘nice-to-have’, it is now widely accepted as a ‘business critical’ to ensure organisational objectives are met, organisations receive a strong return on investment, and employees are committed to doing their best work to achieve this.

Holding team and one-on-one employee meetings may be enough to gather insights from a small group of people, but it doesn’t provide a benchmark for success, nor does it open the table up for honest transparency. Employee annual surveys are also a traditionally used method of gathering information on a situation at hand, but significant time is lost in creating them just as much as deciphering the feedback - at which point the opportunity to improve engagement may be lost. 

Employees need to be engaged and feel like they are truly part of the company’s culture, to deliver better company outcomes. 

Corporate wellness programmes are an extremely valuable tool to implement in your engagement strategy. They create a collective culture, one where employees feel heard and connected, and show tangible benefits - including increased productivity, reduced stress and less sick days, amongst others.

June365 is a holistic wellness solution designed to help employees lead active, healthier lives and encourage active participation and conversation within each employee and the collective culture they create.

Fisher & Paykel Technologies’ Mechanical Design Engineer, Ty Andrews, says it’s the perfect mix of providing a means for functional exercise as well as consistently measuring progress, that makes June365 a great tool to help increase employee engagement. 

“Using expert real-time monitoring technology to ensure each workout is done to the best of the individual’s ability, means we can regularly see the quality and progression of their exercise habits - which leads to good visibility of their engagement with the programme,” says Ty. 

This kind of regular visibility is key to understanding which areas need to be focused on, when and how to follow up with your employees, and whether the programme is working. 

At the end of the day, the best way to increase employee engagement is continuous interaction, measurable engagement through smart data and important metrics, and fostering a culture of continuous improvement. 

A corporate wellness program like June365 that harnesses the power of smart data and measurable engagement, is key to unlocking your organisation’s full engagement potential.
