What’s the purpose of QWL Pulse Surveys?

Business is all about people

Management know that one of the most important assets is their employee workforce.
Successful businessman, entrepreneur and pioneer, Sir Richard Branson, says: “If you look after your staff, they’ll look after your customers. It’s that simple.”

When your teams are happy and satisfied, they are productive and play a big role in the company’s success. However, when they are unhappy and unmotivated, then retention rates drop, absenteeism climbs and the culture suffers, leading to an unproductive workplace.
In fact, a recent study showed that happy employees are up to 20% more productive than unhappy employees. A decade of research has also proven that employee happiness improves nearly every business and educational outcome: raising sales by 37%, productivity by 31%, and accuracy on tasks by 19%, as well as countless health and quality of life improvements. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise – when people are more fulfilled, they are more content across all aspects of their life, including their employment, and this boosts their enthusiasm towards related tasks.

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.

How VibeCatch can Help Build a Culture of Mentors

While virtually every office has leaders, there are only a few that respect and appreciate what it takes to mentor. A mentor is a staff-member who is invested in teaching other employees to grow. In a mentor-based culture, all levels of staff are committed to the mentor philosophy. People come to work with the firm assertion that they will be learning something and in turn, teaching someone else. Colleagues are open and receptive and the workplace is viewed as a safe place to share ideas and express emotion.
