Helping your company grow

Investing resources to create a positive work environment can pay dividends for company growth. Employee satisfaction and engagement should rate highly on every companies list of objectives as employees on the front line may interact with hundreds of customers every day. Staff are often the first to know when something goes right or wrong, so gathering feedback in a structured way with SmartSurvey's online software can help you to analyse responses and stay on top of any issues.

Why measure employee satisfaction?

Most businesses track customer satisfaction, but don't regularly measure employee satisfaction. However, by executing a long-term strategy of retaining motivated employees that provide great service, you will increase customer satisfaction and profitability.

Unhappy employees who leave your company and voice their grievances are detrimental to your brand. Employee focused strategy has become the norm, not the exception in thriving companies and consumers look favourably on organisations investing in people, rather than profits.

By engaging directly with your employees, you can identify what is working well and what needs improving. For example, by frequently using pulse surveys as well as conducting more in-depth satisfaction surveys, you can stay on top of what makes your business effective, allowing you to address issues before they impact customer satisfaction.

The benefits of running surveys in the workplace

Your survey could be designed to measure employee satisfaction or motivation. Or staff members' experiences of and feelings about the workplace, colleagues and management. Or to get feedback on induction and training, both before and after delivery. These are just a few uses to which surveys can be put.

Whatever you choose to measure, a well-designed employee survey is one of the most efficient ways to facilitate two-way communications and better understand what delights or concerns staff. The act of asking for feedback can itself improve morale, and bring benefits to the business:

  • Improved efficiency

    By increasing an employee's desire to want to do a good job, you will improve their output

  • Increased commitment

    Happy employees will put in the maximum amount of effort to assigned tasks

  • Greater satisfaction

    Fulfilled employees will have a positive knock-on effect on your company's growth

  • Staff development

    Motivated employees will strive to attain personal work-place goals and increased self-development

  • Decreased staff turnover

    By building staff commitment you will reduce employee churn

3 Benefits of Digitising Your Employee Engagement

From an HR point of view going digital offers a significant number of advantages for employee engagement over staying with paper‑based systems.

  • Centralises record keeping

    From staff performance appraisals and training & development to feedback about employee satisfaction levels, digitising and centralising this data makes it easier to find, access and share with others, which ultimately benefits your employees and business.

  • A clearer audit trail

    From hiring, employee benefits and staff compensation, to performance appraisals and job termination, there are many policies and practices that HR teams are involved with and associated laws they need to adhere to. By digitising these processes, they are much easier to review for auditing, helping to ensure you remain compliant.

  • Minimise risk in HR legal cases

    With all your staff records efficiently and clearly documented, digitisation helps you quickly locate and present evidence you need should demonstrate processes were correctly followed.
