engagement

Intent
to stay

We all know what it feels like to belong, or to fit in with others. Feeling like you can be your unique and authentic self at work and also connected to those around you fulfills our core need to form and maintain strong, stable interpersonal relationships with others

Why acting on feedback matters

The feedback
action gap

It’s important my
company listens to me

I have an opportunity to provide feedback

My employer acts on feedback very well

All organisations are different, and all the people within them have different needs. There is no-one-size-fits-all solution for fostering belonging in the workplace. What’s important is to listen to what your individual people need – and most importantly, action that feedback to meet those needs.

Improving experience management
in your organisation


1

Employee well-being

In 2020 employee well-being rose to become a core metric of our engagement model and is a major area organisations can focus on as they continue to face disruption in 2021.

2

Taking action on feedback

Asking for feedback is just the start — not taking action on it is worse for engagement than not asking for it in the first place. Closing that gap should be a priority in 2021.

Manager effectiveness

Managers play a huge role in helping with engagement, well-being, belonging, resilience – in fact almost every key driver we’ve looked at. In 2021, make sure your managers have the support they need to improve the experience for their teams.
