It is well established that the more an organization engages its employees; the greater its chances of retaining them. It is also equally true that employees who feel a sense of engagement are far more productive than those who do not.
This clearly shows that employee engagement is a very crucial factor in keeping employee morale high. How does an organization know if its employees have a sense of engagement? Employee engagement surveys provide the answer to this question. Surveys are a great mechanism for understanding if employees are feeling that they are part of the organization. If they are not, surveys should help the organization to get to the root cause and take corrective action.
The right questions lead to the right answers
The most important way of getting to the root cause of employee engagement is by asking the right questions. The means of getting to the root cause by asking the right question will be the content of a valuable webinar that TrainHR, a highly regarded provider of professional trainings for the HR industry, will be organizing. Grant Schneider, who is president and founder of Performance Development Strategies, a company which helps organizations achieve greater results by aligning people in the organization with the organization’s mission and strategy; will be the speaker at this webinar.
While the major focus of this webinar will be on asking the right questions, Schneider will traverse other very important areas of engagement surveys. He will cover the difference between employees being satisfied and being engaged at this session. Other important matters of discussion include the importance of employee loyalty and customer loyalty and retention and how to, when to, and what to do with the survey.

Employee engagement surveys should be objective and reliable and not biased
Organizations that have relatively higher turnover rates seek to discover the reasons for this. It is in situations like this that an objective and reliable Employee Engagement Survey process provides the right answers. A survey that takes decisions about employee engagement based on antidotal information ends up being a wrong guide. On most such instances, this vital information is colored by the hiring managers’ prejudiced perceptions.
Actions that are taken on this kind of unreliable data can prove to be very expensive to the organization. It suffers in all respects, be it dollars spent, business disruption, further turnover, or lost customers. This makes putting in place data driven policies that foster employee retention all the more important. Only objective and reliable data will make this possible. This is the most important learning that this webinar offers.
