I have been giving replies on the subject of Employee Engagement for a long time. You may refer the following links to refer the replies:
Employee engagement cannot be measured directly. However, it can be measured from the following:
a) Number of suggestions received per employee per year
b) Rate of Employee Attrition
c) Number of times employees volunteered to take up new activities
d) Overall culture of teamwork in the company
Employee engagement when high activities become a celebration and in organisations when a small activity is perceived by the recipient as a celebartion then it scores
high. This is a perception index and not a performance index
i would like to take the advice from senior professionals for the modification of employee engagement activities in software development and IT consulting company.
I have joined as an HR recently in this IT company but want to create the new engagement activities which can increase the productivity of the organisation.
i want it to be innovative and as a result in development of the organisation .
Please suggest some activities .....
It is really appreciable that you guys are thinking to bring modifications in the current Employee Engagement Activities; to improve productivity of employees. If you search a bit on google, you may find lots of creative activities companies are trying these days, e.g - Treasure Hunt, Sports events, Annual day, company day (where employees are asked to participate in activities like - singing, dancing, instruments play) and many others.
However, it is recommendable for you to first get to know from employees what is their Employee Engagement Feedback till now before you joined the organisation. A quick research can help you get this data.
The survey data obtained will be much more helpful in figuring out what employees need. Without knowing employee feedback it might not bring the desired results.
Surveys are only one part of the process, and only one way of measuring. Employee engagement is a complex issue that requires effort from everyone in the organization. Surveys (no matter how frequent), simply arenít enough. A software like Office vibeís employee engagement platform an help you keep a constant pulse on your teamís engagement.
Here are a few ways you could be measuring employee engagement on a regular basis.
1. Pulse Surveys
3. Stay/Exit Interviews
4. Employee Net Promoter score
