Engagement and Retention

Measuring employee engagement and retention

Engagement and retention measurement is often subjective and unreliable and usually very expensive. Furthermore surveys are often anonymous in an attempt to raise the level of honesty in replies. This means that the data generated can at best give a generic view of the organisation/group being surveyed but offers no reliable data upon which to base development plans because there can be no consultative process with the anonymous group.

Harrison Assessments Talent Solutions (HATS) offers a new and fresh way to capture reliable data without the need for anonymity because the questions asked are in relation to working preferences and wants. Using the HATS SmartQuestionnaire™, data can be gathered for an individual, team, department or the whole organisation. It is then analysed and presented using 8 employee expectations which are directly related to engagement:

The 8 Areas of Employee Expectations

The Engagement and Retention Analysis provides objective data on the 8 sets of employee expectations laid out in the infographic above – Development, Remuneration, Authority, Social, Appreciation, Communication, Personal and Work Life Balance. Because this data is objective and not subjective it is highly accurate and when performed for groups can form a reliable source for designing reward schemes and ensuring that expectations are met.

The group Engagement and Retention report (for 30+ people) is our gift to you as an introduction to Harrison Assessment – we will perform this for you for 30+ people free of charge.
