Do you think employee engagement reports are an effective way to improve employee engagement levels?
Employee engagement reports are a tool and should be treated as such. A hammer in and of itself does nothing until you know how you want to use it. And, like many tools, if used correctly, it can be used to build something significant. And yet, like a lot of tools, in the wrong hands, it can be destructive. What is the purpose of an engagement tool? To genuinely discover the pulse of the organization and use it as a baseline to improve? Using these tools and then hiding or not sharing the discoveries can back-fire. Ensure there is a plan in place that considers how feedback will be fed back to the people who gave it to you. Share strengths with employees, and share the areas for opportunity so they know where and how management is trying to change things, and where they can play a role. Employees who feel heard and understood will ultimately be those who are more engaged. If they feel their feedback is not appreciated or valued, their engagement levels - the very thing you are trying to improve - may get worse.
