Analysts have found that up to 87% of employees are not engaged in the workplace (Gallup). It is now well understood that more engaged employees lead to better business outcomes on a number of key performance indicators:
- reduced employee turnover
- higher customer ratings
- reduced absenteeism
- increased product quality (fewer defects)
- improved corporate culture
and more (Gallup Business Journal, 2013).
Employees participating in larger meetings (20 people or more) can often coast through with minimal engagement. With MeetingPulse, they are more likely to participate in the meeting. Social factors and power politics often keep people silent. With MeetingPulse’s anonymity option, they are free to speak their mind.
Employee engagement can be difficult to measure. MeetingPulse’s Report metrics allow for the measurement of a team’s engagement level. The Harvard Business Review (HBR, 2014) recommends measuring “The ratio of highly engaged employees vs. low on a current team.” MeetingPulse allows the manager or meeting organizer to gather precise data about the level of participation within their team, and to track and compare the measurement both over time and against other teams.
