Everyone wins: How to meet the wants and needs of your workforce
Surveying your employees to acquire information about their workplace needs takes detailed planning, execution, and follow-up. Misinterpreting the results or failing to respond to survey feedback can hurt employee morale. Moreover, it can be a costly mistake to make in our current climate, with the "Great Resignation" impacting employers of all sizes and a tight labor market applying pressure on American businesses' recruiting and retention programs.
Engaged employees are 41% more likely to show up for work and have a 17% higher productivity rate, so checking the pulse of your workforce through strategic surveying can ultimately have a positive impact on your company's bottom line, says Michelle Thompson, Manager of Strategic HR Advisory Services for G&A Partners, during our latest webinar, Everyone Wins: How to Meet the Wants and Needs of Your Workforce. There are a series of steps – backed by industry best practices – that can transform your company's surveying techniques into a concerted strategy that enhances employee engagement, reduces turnover, improves recruiting and retention, and enriches your company culture.
Thompson shares survey strategies and best practices she's learned through experience and provides unique human resources insights. In this webinar, you can:
- Learn more about different types of employee surveys and how to select the right one based on your workforce needs.
- Discover essential steps employers should take before conducting an employee survey.
- Determine how often – and when – to conduct employee surveys, so your workforce doesn't get "survey fatigue."
- Understand how to set goals for your survey's outcome and what to do with the results after the survey results are in.
- Acquire ideas for making significant changes based on survey results even if you're working with a limited budget.
- Learn how and why surveying can have far-reaching positive impacts on employee engagement.
