The Connections Index tool is designed to help companies understand the strength, quality and drivers of three key elements of employee connections that are vital to business success: employees’ connection to their company, employees’ connection to their colleagues and employees’ connection to the outside world.
The Connections Index is derived from the aggregated analysis of three distinct data sets:
- A short and targeted employee survey to measure current attitudes, opinions and behaviors
- An independent analysis of employee behavior to see how actual behavior matches self-reported behavior, including an analysis of employee activity on company-related social media sites, and in on and off-line exchanges of information with each other and their colleagues
- A comparison to Edelman’s just-in-time employee engagement benchmark
The results of the Connections Index are reported back on a virtual dashboard that allows executives to examine the strength of their employee connections compared to best practices and company objectives, and to evaluate performance across geography, line of business and type of employee.
The Connections Index tool is ideal for any company that wants to understand drivers of engagement and where it should focus employee engagement efforts for maximum impact. It’s also ideal for companies that want a new and fresh approach to measurement engagement.
