There’s a science to highly engaged employees.
Here’s the formula.

All HR professionals understand the need for employee engagement. Today, insights from the behavioral and decision sciences are driving an entirely new approach to engagement, empowering companies to create a culture that connects people to purpose, values to vision, and—not coincidentally—experiences to results.

That’s the reason we developed a comprehensive, next-generation employee engagement platform. CultureNext provides an environment for building a culture where your people can take ownership of your company’s success, where they’ll always know they’re your most valued asset, and where their feedback will be turned into action plans to bring about real-life, real-time business results. They’ll also be part of creating an amazing place to work.

You’ll get that, and more, in a single, integrated solution.

Despite the buzz about “big data,” it’s all too easy for HR professionals to get bogged down in trying to develop comprehensive metrics, or trapped in an endless maze of surveys, reports, and recommendations.

The first capability that a platform solution should offer is simplicity: easy for participants to use, and easy for administrators to gather and analyze the wealth of data that a robust system will generate.

CultureNext streamlines the process with a single, integrated platform for core engagement solutions across surveys, programs, and measurement, rather than a flurry of snack-sized exercises yielding different experiences, incompatible data, and unquantified results.

Keeping things simple ensures the factors that determine your program’s success can be efficiently measured, tracked, and closely related to ROI.

There’s little point in amassing engagement data if you never do anything with it.

Yet it seems that’s exactly what’s happening: According to The CultureNext Employee Engagement Benchmark Study, while 80 percent of companies believe their recognition programs are effective, fewer than half are actually attempting to measure that effectiveness.

The science of building an amazing culture involves a cycle of measurement, action planning, program intervention, communication, monitoring, and adjustment, followed by:

More measurement.

Because if you can measure it, you can motivate it. And then you can accurately evaluate it.

CultureNext puts the right tools in your hands for processing data to provide insights, impact, and action plans for improvement. 

Think of monitoring as a conversation with your employees that never ends.

The right reporting tools shouldn’t stop at collecting point-in-time data and delivering measurements every now and again. They should also include methods for regular, ongoing monitoring to determine if the adjustments you’re making to your programs are delivering the desired effects.

This means having the right support to monitor programs in a way that’s valid, repeatable, and effective, anytime and anywhere in the organization.

CultureNext meets this need with unique listening programs and other tools that enable HR leaders to keep in step with the current pulse and performance of the organization, and identify trends or potential trouble spots before it’s too late.

From measuring, to monitoring, to intervening as needed.

Data-driven decision-making allows you to project how changes in any facet of your program might affect results. With the proper engagement analytics, you’ll be able to connect the dots of attitudes, actions, and outcomes throughout your organization to spot trends and make recommendations for intervention in a timely matter.

CultureNext provides the right technology, tools, and support to identify trends in program engagement, in individual and team performance, and even which employees are more likely to leave or more likely to stay.

This ability to anticipate and intervene is where the value of consistent measuring and monitoring really asserts itself. As most HR professionals learn through hard experience, proactive is always better than reactive.

The larger an organization, the more complex enterprise-wide engagement solutions can seem across teams, cultures, and countries.
