EmpowerPoints, a leading incentive and engagement company, has announced the release of a simple yet powerful employee-survey tool that revolutionizes the way companies learn about the workplace from the perspective of their employees.
"When it comes to problems arising in your workforce, you can't fix what you can't see," says EmpowerPoints founder and CEO Ruben Navarrete. By integrating the new employee survey tool into the existing EmpowerPoints incentive system, EmpowerPoints enhances productivity, improves retention, skyrockets morale, and allows employers to keep their finger on the pulse of how employees are thinking and feeling about the company and their work experiences. No more getting blindsided by issues that explode seemingly out of nowhere, when in fact they've been brewing for months or even years.
In contrast, EmpowerPoints includes the survey questions as part of a broader platform that also incorporates incentives and wellness tools. In short, it makes being surveyed not only fun but also rewarding. "There are other companies that conduct employee surveys, but until now no one has done it in a way integrates it with an incentive system," says Navarrete.
This easy-to-manage system starts by asking employees one simple question each week. There are standard survey questions as well as opportunities for employers to customize questions. All responses are anonymous, allowing for honest feedback. EmpowerPoints also provides a powerful reporting suite to help understand the data in real-time.This is about more than averting HR crises, though. For many companies, employee engagement is the difference between business success and failure. Think of heightened employee engagement as maximizing the investment represented by payroll. Research shows that engaged companies can grow profits as much as three times faster than their disengaged competitors. Yet a shocking number of employers never bother surveying employees about their job. Ignorance isn't bliss when it comes to employees; it's a recipe for disaster. Even when companies do survey employees, too often the survey simply feels like mindless email clutter.
Through the broader EmpowerPoints experience, employees earn points from their peers and others in the company. Employers can attach point values to any type of employee behaviour, incentive, or milestone. In turn, those points can be redeemed for time off, gifts, or any number of other benefits the company wishes to offer.
A company's workforce is both its greatest asset and, oftentimes, its greatest investment as well. In today's hyper-competitive business world, that asset needs to be understood, nurtured and heard more than ever before. EmpowerPoints is the best way for companies to understand this make-or-break investment.
