Engagement Studies: Promote A Culture Of Feedback

For most large companies – creating a workplace where employees are highly engaged would translate into hundreds of thousands and often millions of dollars in recovered or new revenue.

Gone are the days of the “typical employee engagement survey.” Creating a culture of feedback, continually using multiple engagement tools, is now reducing turnover, increasing retention and saving big dollars for companies in the U.S. and around the world.

An Engagement Study is an opportunity for you to understand the most important issues that motivate or de-motivate your top performing employees. Far more than a one-time shot – an engagement study must be performed over time to benchmark successes and failures and monitor and influence positive change in the company environment.

You don’t always know what you think you know. In fact, in traditional employee studies answers are not authentic 40% of the time. Our Engagement Studies get the most accurate and valid answers because they are designed find out exactly what you need to know as an employer – how your employees really feel about their job, the company, and most importantly, the reasons they feel the way they do.

Our engagement interviews are different because they ask the critical question, “WHY?” to corresponding survey number rankings. If an employee ranks his/her supervisor a “3,” for example, what will you do with that limited information? You cannot fix a number. But you can fix a reason. And with the help of the Work Institute, we help you uncover the “why” so you can take the necessary actions to improve.


Look at the facts and numbers from a recent survey: “organizations with high employee engagement have: higher stock value, 22% higher profitability, 21% higher productivity, 10% higher customer engagement, 25-65% lower turnover, 37% lower absenteeism, 28% lower shrinkage (theft), and 48% fewer staff safety incidents.”

At a minimum, your turnover cost is 1/3 annual salary based on a meta-analysis of 21 different companies with employees making $8/hr. That equates to $5,000 per leaver if they are only making $8/hr. Most employees make more than $8/hour, and in turn, your turnover cost is actually much higher. If you save 10 employees, you just saved your organization $50,000. Now - plug in your actual numbers. The savings you gain when using Engagement Studies are impressive.

Engagement Studies give you the information you need to understand employee attitudes to make positive changes and reduce internal costs significantly.

Once you become a partner of the Work Institute we assign you a Client Services representative. This person will be with you every step of the way – from identifying who needs to be interviewed, crafting the specific study questions, gathering and providing data analysis to building a change management plan to address specific issues and meet predefined business goals.

Your Client Services representative will become an integral part of your internal team by providing research, data, analysis and recommendations along the entire feedback cycle. Their entire focus is your company’s engagement and retention strategies. They find what isn’t working and get it working again saving your hundreds of thousands of dollars in turnover costs.

Once we get the interviews and surveys in place, your Client Services representative will work with you to summarize the major 3-4 trends in bullet form with the supporting raw data as a reference. We will regularly meet with you and any key leaders to discuss what we’ve discovered and will work with you to build a plan of action to make key changes.

Our reporting system is designed to give access to whomever you deem necessary.  Sometimes all organizational leaders want and need to know the research. Sometimes it’s better to have one key internal person managing the process. Whatever the request, we will provide access at no additional charge.
