At-home work is the new norm, which brings with it both challenges and benefits. One challenge for managers – and HR leaders – is that remote workers more frequently feel disengaged and disconnected. Despite their best efforts, leadership is struggling to understand the employee’s new at-home work experience.
Because it has never been more important to understand how your people are doing while socially distanced, imagine if you had a free online tool to help measure their sentiments? Well, you do. Forgeant, a leader in employee engagement sentiment tracking, is making their platform available for free during the COVID-19 pandemic.
How does it work? The platform integrates directly into the employee’s work flow, so they can provide real-time feedback to help you understand how they are feeling and faring in their new remote environment. Once employee’s sentiments are recorded, the tool creates customized online training modules, enabling managers to become better leaders and better care for their people.
Oriented toward empowering managers (not just HR), the platform simplifies engagement into four drivers. So, for example, if the driver that describes how team members feel about their relationship with peers and boss is low, the training module would provide content on how to be more inclusive and how to build team cohesion
A manager can track sentiment daily or weekly, although Forgeant recommends daily. With daily tracking, you’ll always have your finger on the pulse of how remote workers are doing, so you can course-correct in real-time before a negative sentiment goes viral.
