Voice of Employee

Improve your organization by listening to employee feedback

Whether its management, training or flexibility, you’ll know exactly what part of your business is having the biggest impact on your employee satisfaction.

What is voice of employee?

Voice of Employee or VoE is the practice of analyzing employee feedback to improve your employee experience. Voice of Employee is typically gauged by utilizing employee satisfaction survey tools and feedback systems. Most companies understand the importance of employee feedback analysis and how it can supercharge your employee experience efforts, but a lot of organizations are relying on archaic methods to extract the data they need to better understand what their employees are trying to say.

Using employee feedback and Voice of Employee methods, organizations can gain valuable insights into where they are excelling and where they might need some work. Measuring employee satisfaction doesn’t have to be over-complicated; with Repustate, you can measure employee satisfaction and improve your retention rates like never before. Get to the root of what your employees really want and read between the survey lines.

Why is Voice of Employee important?

With employee churn rates skyrocketing in the 21st century, and most employees jumping from job to job throughout their lives, retaining valuable talent has become difficult and competitive. VoE is the most valuable tool in your company’s arsenal. With a good Voice of Employee solution, you can:

  • Improve the employee experience
  • Attract and retain the best in the space
  • Get into the minds of your workers
  • Know where you need to improve
  • Understand the next “big trend”

With a good VoE solution, companies can take the guesswork out of employee satisfaction efforts and get to the root of what will actually work versus what might work. Answers as simple as “more training”, “better benefits”, “more one-on-ones with management” will be right at your fingertips. There is no better way to know what your employees are thinking than to apply methods that don’t just collect the feedback but will be instrumental in examining it for employee sentiment analysis.

Measure employee satisfaction and descrease your churn rates

One of the biggest indicators of how a company treats its employees is via employee churn rates. If you have a high turn-over rate, it’s time to focus inward and analyze where you are going wrong. Using a Voice of Employee solution that goes beyond simple survey tools, you’ll have access to unprecedented insights into what your employees are really thinking and what it’s going to take to keep them happy.

Repustate carries you beyond simple survey answers. Whether it was their treatment from upper management, meetings, training tools, or flexibility you’ll know exactly what part of your business is having the biggest impact on your employee satisfaction.

Attract top talent and keep them

Unlike previous generations where individuals stayed with their companies for their entire careers, people are “job hopping” more than ever before. Top talent continually bounces from company to company whether it’s because of monetary gain, better perks and incentives, or diversity in the workforce. Your employee needs are as unique and complex, and in the digital age, it’s become much easier to jump ship if something isn’t up to standard. By utilizing a VoE solution, you can get to the root of what will help your employees stay with your company long-term and give them the experience that they deserve. Employees tell companies what they want, whether it’s through reviews, surveys, or social media platforms, the sentiment is out there and it’s up to you to gather it and analyze it.

Your competitors are likely using employee experience tools to help them stay ahead of you, but none of these is more valuable than an employee feedback solution that not only gathers your employee insights but also takes that feedback and analyzes it by using sentiment analysis. With this, you can gather what your employees want to see from you and retain top talent.

How can Sentiment Analysis help VoE?

The power of a great employee feedback solution is well known in many industries. Couple the benefits of a Voice of Employee tool with Sentiment Analytics and you’ve got a new superpower on your hands.

Sentiment Analytics is the practice of using NLP or Natural Language Processing to identify employee sentiments. By combining AI and text analytics, companies can read between the lines of what their employees are trying to say about their experience working with a brand and garner the sentiment behind it. When you combine text analytics and VoE, you’re gathering the emotional feedback of your employees.

Attract the best

As your employee satisfaction rates improve, so too will the rate at which you attract top talent to your organization. With the advent of social media, and more specifically platforms where employees can voice their opinions about what it was like to work for this company, organizations have to be more vigilant about what is said on those platforms. One bad review can be the reason why a job seeker chooses your competitor over you.

Voice of Employee surveys are great at scratching the surface of what employees want to see from you, but they are only that: surface level and archaic. What companies need is a solution that digs deep into the employee satisfaction index and utilizes employee sentiment analysis.
