By expediting and streamlining employee listening programs, the bank continues to benefit both operationally and culturally.

How Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is closing the experience gap

A new approach to employee listening

Alongside a twice annual employee engagement survey, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank captures continuous qualitative and quantitative feedback from across its entire employee lifecycle using Qualtrics EmployeeXM™. People leaders are routinely provided with comprehensive insights in fewer than ten days from close of survey. The analysis, insights and enterprise-wide recommendations, on topics as varied as absenteeism and future of work, inform leadership forums, divisional plans mapped to enterprise opportunities, and other activities that cascade and drive action throughout the organisation.

Mitigating risk across the organisation

By filtering a series of surveys, behavioural risks, such as attrition, as well as potential for incidents and conduct concerns have been identified. Significant assessments of the culture indicate where behavioural risks lie and allow for the mitigation of incidents and improvements to conduct — thereby avoiding material risks to the organisation. The platform’s listening capabilities also assists the bank in adhering to regulatory requirements in the banking industry, as well as form necessary views on culture, and provide further training toward compliance.

Using external experts

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank have leveraged the Qualtrics platform with the advice and assistance of Davidson. From the design of an optimal dashboard, to providing surge capacity and support through the evolution of use, having dedicated resource to leverage technical experience and strategic advice have been pivotal to the organisation’s successful iterations of the EX solution.
