More than just an employee survey
TINYpulse discovers how your employees are feeling, and performing
Take a step back for a moment and think about company culture as though it were a garden. A beautiful garden is something that you have to keep tended. With just the right amount of water, fertilizer, and sunlight, it’ll flourish before your eyes. And the perfect garden has the right complement of plants and flowers that makes it come together. But a once-great garden can get overrun without constant attention. Or it can wither away if you forget to give it water or the right nutrients. Without a thoughtful, dedicated gardener, the garden will never reach its full bloom. The same can be said for any organization. Without tuned-in leaders committed to promoting a positive culture and fostering employee growth, a work environment will never enjoy high levels of employee engagement. Whether they be CEOs, department heads, human resource groups, or team leads, only those in leadership positions have the position to effect cultural change.
For all the apparent benefits of remote work for the employee experience, remote workers reported a lower level of satisfaction with their coworkers when compared to the benchmark of all employees, according to our research. This isn’t particularly surprising, given that these employees have limited interaction with their colleagues, with most, if not all, of that interaction happening virtually.
It’s not just employees that have changed with the times. Today’s recruitment process is a far cry from the old job-post cattle call. Set yourself up for success by knowing where millennial candidates will look and what they want to see. Dropping a posting on LinkedIn or Monster just won’t cut it. You need to prep everything about your recruiting experience to make yourself attractive to applicants.
