Improving employee engagement using HR software
Having employees engaged fully at work is a struggle that most businesses can relate to.
Whether because of distractions or lack of motivation, disengagement can lead to both productivity and profitability issues for the business.
According to Gallup’s recent 142-country study on the ‘State of the Global Workplace’, over 75 per cent of workers in Australia and New Zealand are not engaged while on the job. In South East Asia, this number skyrockets to a massive 87 per cent of workers disengaged at work.
A way of solving waning engagement levels in the office is by introducing HRMS software.
The idea of setting goals is not new, but can help increase engagement levels in the office. The goals can be to do with personal achievement in the company or with the professional development of the entire team.
With use of HRMS software, goals and objectives can be tracked with better feedback about achievement. This can help employees align to corporate objectives and assist the entire office in moving in the same direction.
Appraisals are a good way in business to have open discussions with employees over the progression of their work. The appraisals, usually interview-based, can appear as audits of performance to employees and are sometimes not well received.
HRMS software takes the appraisal process online and is personalised to the employee. This form of appraisal gives the employee space and time to accurately highlight their areas of weakness. It also gives business leaders a better gauge on the performance of employees.
A benefit of the HRMS software is that it can provide enterprise-wide feedback on how the company is performing as a whole. This means it is easy to track areas that need to be improved and those areas with real growth.
As a result, the company can put more focus on performance which can only be positive for the business as it continues to develop further.
