With employees, leaving at alarming rates, it's important to consider whether they are leaving because of pandemic conditions or because of poor company culture.
The Great Resignation is here and no organization is safe from its transformational effect. While the industries hit hardest are leisure, restaurants, hotels, professional services, and retail the entire economy is experiencing the impact. With employees, leaving at alarming rates, it's important to consider whether they are leaving because of pandemic conditions or because of poor company culture.
Culture is essential for retaining and motivating employees. It shapes every interaction your employees have with one another. Your culture is either encouraging them to proactively solve issues, or encouraging them to scroll through job postings. It’s either instilling them with confidence to take on a new project or driving them out the door the moment their shift ends. In other words, culture helps people participate in almost every activity they do, especially work.
While a company’s culture is fluid and shifts over time, its values do not. Company values are often renamed and tweaked over the years but they tend to define the principles and beliefs outlined by leadership. Because they influence employee engagement and culture, HR's mission and values must be clearly stated. If you’re wondering what your culture is and if it’s keeping your employees engaged, you are not alone.
Measuring the entire employee experience may be a time-consuming endeavor, but beginning with just one or two areas of your company culture and engagement is a good place to start. You may examine how employee engagement drives (or derails) your corporate culture by measuring these two things simultaneously. The objective is not to define what your culture is, or what you want it to be, but rather to determine whether your culture is helping or hurting your company.
How do you measure something like that? Culture's influence on employee engagement may be a good place to start.

You can then easily determine which levers to pull to boost employee engagement and productivity because they have visibility into pockets of high or low involvement.
Different organizations want to ask their employees different things in different ways. Our employee engagement surveys let you customize your questions, or choose from a library of questions created by our industry experts. You can then deploy them to your employees in real-time.
