Employee Experience

Supporting public servants, so they can
support the public

From local health departments to large federal agencies, all levels of government are hard at work to support the public response to COVID-19. As the largest employer in the United States, government organizations will need to use real-time data to inform questions about how employees return to the workplace. If public servants need to be in physical offices, how do we bring them back the right way? How should we engage and support those who need government services?

We are continuing our effort to help by offering specialized solutions for all organizations. We hope this helps each of you continue to support the public, the right way.

Employee Symptom Check

In line with current CDC guidelines and built by the Qualtrics team of physicians and XM scientists, the Employee Symptom Check helps you assess health symptoms, travel, and other potential risks that could jeopardize employees when coming onsite. Once completed, assessments can automatically trigger downstream actions and information sharing such as building access, relevant healthcare information, or links to online safety training. Leaders also gain visibility across teams and locations empowering them to make real-time, data-based decisions to keep your people safe.

  • Increase onsite employee safety by encouraging employees to take the health assessment
  • Quickly identify potential health risks and automatically direct employees to stay home
  • Enable employees to show time-stamped self-certification notifications to come onsite
  • Link daily symptom data with other COVID-19 data tracking systems
  • Give leadership access to dashboards showing trending data and insights that reveal hot spots in various locations or teams

Getting to the new office normal means employees’ hearts and minds can support the mission – with their top concerns addressed and logistical needs met.

Employee Engagement in Disruption

It’s become clear that using the same approaches to listen, understand, and respond to employee needs in this new environment won’t be relevant. Government HR leaders today need solutions that help them understand and take action to improve employee experience, wellness, productivity, and engagement. 

  • Census, dashboards, and manager actions for organizations going through significant change
  • Expert guidance on aligning topic areas to demographic groups and communicating results back to employees
  • Understand and act on critical experience areas like employee wellbeing, resilience, team dynamics, change management, and inclusion and belonging
