Employee response rate matters

Businesses today understand how important staff feedback is when it comes to improving job satisfaction levels, productivity, profitability and overall corporate culture.

Podcast - The connection between Employee Productivity and Profitability

For this month’s podcast we talked with Leena Saario, HR Manager at Jysk Finland about measuring employee engagement and how she overcame the challenges that come with gathering and interpreting data.

Furthermore, she talks about the improvements she saw by utilising the QWL method and how this increased both productivity and profitability in selected stores.

"We are very numbers driven and measure productivity very precisely with different business metrics here at JYSK as well as different HR metrics like sick absence and such. We were never able to link these two before as we could see poor HR metrics and great productivity metrics and vice versa. With QWL we are able to really understand how well-being and the quality of work-life really affect productivity. This led to a significant productivity increase and a 25% profitability increase in our stores that used QWL." Leena Saario, HR Manager at Jysk Finland.

The financial costs and benefits of effective HR systems

Every department within a business, whether it’s Marketing, Sales, Customer Service, Finance or even HR, comes with a cost and a return that must be calculated, monitored, assessed and controlled.
This Return On Investment (ROI) measures how much value each function provides the business, including sale quantities, number of leads, customer satisfaction and staff retention, in comparison to the expenses it requires to perform. The concern is that, while most departments are easier to calculate and justify the benefits versus spend, HR is far more difficult. How do you assign a value to better skill matching and improved culture, or higher staff satisfaction and lower absenteeism? HR departments often utilise HR software systems to assist them achieve their goals, and this seems to add to the challenge through additional expense, while excellent results are overlooked.

Let’s discuss the costs of HR systems and why they’re a worthwhile expense.

Why Improving Your Corporate Culture Starts with Employee Feedback

Did you know that employee satisfaction really is the lifeblood of your business’ health?

All organisations – both big and small - are very reliant on how well they function from within. The internal processes and the staff who make it work have such an impact on everything from customer service and branding, all the way down to the bottom line.

Let’s discuss how corporate culture works and why we want to improve it with employee feedback.

Corporate culture has been a focus for business over the decades, however it has become much more in the spotlight only recently as research has begun to show how much it affects

Marketing is setting up leads with fancy content, and the sales team are converting them into profitable long-term clients. Upper Management is running the show, Finance and legal are formulating strategies and the administration team are supporting the whole operation.

What about HR? Well... we’re just doing our thing – seen and never heard. I mean, we’re only responsible for a business’ greatest asset: the staff.

The real problem is, we only have ourselves to blame.
It’s time to re-establish the importance of Human Resources, and here’s how.
