Texting is The Most Preferred Method For Employee Communication

Texting provides a convenient platform to collect and share engagement and communication with large, hourly teams. Everyone always has their phone on them, and we are all comfortable texting, even the older generation. All your team will need is an active Wi-Fi network or a data plan to access the surveys through text.

Texting is one of the most convenient platforms for internal communications, engagement, and employee recognition. We have also come to realize its potential as a means for connecting with employees and building a sense of company culture. Texting is simply the most practical way to connect with the workforce around employee communication, onboarding, engagement, attendance, and performance management.

With text, you can communicate with your frontline teams in accessible, inclusive, and easy-to-digest ways.

Gather Feedback on a Regular Basis With Continuous Pulse Surveys

It is important to note that building an engaged workforce takes more than a one-time survey. To understand the employee experience, you have to connect with your frontline employees regularly.

Types of Employee Engagement Surveys:

  • Pulse Surveys: Short & sweet surveys sent weekly or monthly.
  • Engagement Surveys: Longer, in-depth surveys sent once or twice annually.
  • New Hire Surveys: Surveys for new hires to share feedback about onboarding.
  • Employee Lifecycle Surveys: Surveys to assess employee engagement at specific milestones (6 months after joining, 1 year, 2 years, etc.).
  • Exit Surveys: Surveys for departing employees to share feedback with the organization.

Using text as the channel for your employee engagement program speeds up the feedback collection process for HR professionals and provides a way to perform continuous performance management throughout the employee lifecycle. Mobile employee engagement software will ultimately increase employee satisfaction and boost engagement among your frontline teams.

Employee engagement platforms are not created the same. With TeamSense, surveys can be made anonymous and set to a recurring schedule so you can continually gather feedback from your team. It is an efficient way to do a 'temperature check' or keep a regular 'pulse' on your team's engagement. Automated reminders ensure the best possible response rates, so you can make sure everyone who wants to voice their opinion has the chance.

Measure your Employee Engagement Initiatives Across Locations & Teams

Improving employee engagement for frontline employees feels like an impossible feat when you have no data or real-time insights to work with. This is why every organization needs good employee engagement software. HR personnel need feedback from the entire workplace to create an effective engagement strategy, and ultimately, a better employee culture.

So how can employee engagement tools like TeamSense benefit your organization? TeamSense will give you a simple data report where you can view engagement metrics by team, site, or location. Through TeamSense, you'll be able to analyze employee engagement rates across your organization, filter by people leaders, locations, or teams, and measure how your engagement levels are impacted as you ramp up your engagement initiatives.

You can also:

  • Track employee response rates.
  • Track employee engagement over time.
  • Measure the strength of your manager-employees relationships.
  • Measure how connected employees feel to the company.

Your company can use these actionable insights to improve the performance management process and increase employee engagement.
