5 Ways Employee Surveys Can Help Retain Workers

Every business wants to keep informed to make smarter decisions.

For instance, you conduct customer surveys to learn more about their preferences, challenges, pain points and feelings. These surveys play a vital role in helping to understand customers so you can communicate effectively with your target audiences and build meaningful relationships with them.

But what about your internal customers? Your colleagues, team members and staff? 

Employee surveys allow you to gather their feedback, opinions and areas of concern too. Through these surveys, you can better understand the needs of your people and learn what motivates them at work. These insights can help you improve employee retention rates.

How can sickness and absence risk impact your company?

Leave from work comes in many forms – career’s, annual, personal leave, just to name a few. This paid time off work is just one way of showing you care for your employees’ welfare.

However, when your employees are using their leave entitlements, such as sick leave, for purposes that are not in line with what they are intended for, this can have a negative impact on your organisation and even indicate that they’re not content in their roles.

When not properly managed, employee absenteeism can become a serious threat to your business. Frequent, unscheduled and unauthorised days off affect productivity levels, the delivery of service and the overall morale of your company.

It can also have a negative impact on your bottom line. In fact, absenteeism is costing the Australian economy more than $44 billion every year - equating to $578 per worker per day of absence.

To mitigate sickness and absence risk from hurting your business, you must understand what motivates these kinds of unplanned absences and know how to deal with them.

Are your employees heading towards burnout?

The signs of burnout can creep up very quickly in employees when their physical, mental and emotional strengths are reaching close to exhaustion.

However, the effects of employee burnout are not just limited to their personal welfare alone. It can lead to significant complications like lower productivity levels, higher absenteeism rate, reduced employee engagement and increased employee turnover.

As part of the Human Resources or leadership team, you’ll know that staff burnout often results in additional costs – financial, reputational and cultural – for your business, too.

Recognising the early signs and risk factors of employee burnout can help you prevent these serious issues from occurring. After all – prevention is better than cure.

Fortunately, there are innovative tools like VibeCatch’s employee engagement QWL (Quality Work Life) Polls that can provide your organisation with relevant insights in addressing employee burnout before they happen.

5 Ways to Increase Employee Retention

The results are in and it’s not good. A recent LinkedIn survey shows that most employees can only envision themselves at their current company for less than 2 years. This means that you will spend resources to hire, train and nurture a potential staff member, only to have them quit just as they are getting the hang of things.

How To Retain Top Talent

One of the main pratfalls of any working environment is high staff turnover.  You spend time and resources in finding the best person for the job – and then they leave within a year.  Most companies place high priority on interview techniques and headhunting.  But what is perhaps more important than hiring is the ability to retain that talent.  Employee retention is one of the cornerstones of a highly productive workplace.  Ensuring that staff feels engaged and satisfied with their daily operations will inevitably lead to an efficient and successful working environment.
