Engage for better business performance, happier employees and a healthier environment
Employee Engagement has been proven to be critical when it comes to business success and is a key contributor to retaining talent and driving innovation. But unfortunately, fast growing businesses tend to be so busy they may neglect investing in people and methods of engagement. Approximately 50% of HR leaders recently admit to not fully understanding their employees nor what drives them.
We all want to create and work within a thriving, successful workplace and for an organization that values and respects our ideas and input. But there’s a problem, it’s just not that simple to achieve, and yet maintaining and building morale and momentum, has been shown one of the biggest contributors to rapid business growth.
So, what’s the challenge in achieving this? Our business is our people, and our people are our business. Their well-being is the business’s well-being, but businesses don’t have the resources of time and investment to individually ensure optimum contribution.
This has a number of consequences:
- Team burn-out and long-time sickness
- Costly recruitment processes
- Project delays
- Expensive requirement for temporary labor
- Lower morale and productivity
- Staff turnover and the subsequent disruption
- Negative external feedback
The answer to all of this is good management – but management is a delicate art and all individuals need managing differently. This is just the beginning of where Engage steps in.
Engage is a cloud-based platform for exactly that – connecting leaders with employees and engaging everyone. What happens when the individuals in the business start not just talking, but collaborating with each other and contributing to the bigger picture? It’s simple
- Risks and issues are spotted and dealt with sooner
- Everyone knows what is happening in the business
- Employees become company ambassadors
- Noticeably higher levels of motivation
- Better decisions are made
- Greater stability
- A healthier and more profitable bottom line!
This employee engagement means one consequence – insight for management and a team of happy, thriving employees.
So how does it happen?
Engage is a platform deployed to employees on web and mobile platforms to share their own named or anonymous contribution. To make sure staff are involved the platform is two way, enabling comments and dialogue to be initiated by management or employees. You can also engage the workforce via many interactive features, such as:
- Updates and news
- Work mood tracking
- Nominations for recognition
Engage is used by both businesses embarking in a period of change, and teams simply seeking to access the un-tapped potential and imagination of their workforce. In all cases, the Engage team start by understanding the business needs and compiling a business case, configuring a bespoke deployment followed by training and an established launch programme to embed the platform with employees. Engage is then able to train and hand over management of the service to your own team or provide an ongoing managed service with regular reporting. With the ability to rapidly see progression in employment satisfaction and productivity, the return on investment is demonstrable and un-paralleled.
The interactive and range of ways in which to contribute via Engage make it suitable for all levels of technical ability across your Business. While some may simply use it to give feedback, millennial employees will be tech-savvy enough to recognise the opportunity Engage offers for them to have a voice and influence the direction of the organisation they work for.

“With a business of 500 employees and 4 full-time HR staff about to under-go a geographic and management re-structuring, in parallel with complex GDPR deployment it was clear we needed something different. Engage integrated perfectly with our change plan and enables us to add milestones to understand employee response, understanding and attitude to the change. It closed the gap between the ‘management bubble’ and the word on the street.”
