Master Class on Talent Management & Engagement - Ajay Bhatia

  1. 1. Measuring Effectiveness of Employee Engagement and Learning People Practices from Best Workplaces Ajay Bhatia
  2. 2. • Most people believe that the best way to motivate is with rewards like money—the carrot-and- stick approach. That's a mistake. • Pink asserts that the secret to high performance and satisfaction-at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.
  3. 3. Satisfaction Vs Engagement ? Employee Satisfaction = Overall ‘employee assessment’ of the workplace Refers to how employees feel their “happiness”— about their job and conditions, such as compensation, work environment, and career development opportunities, etc. Satisfied employees are happy to clock in and out; Do “what is asked “ But….you can be a satisfied employee without being engaged Engaged employees = Productive members of an organization who are “psychologically committed” to mission/purpose of the organization; work with passion; go “above & beyond” laid down expectations; thrive on challenges, look for opportunities to give back to organization, and leave a legacy Instead of being “paid workers”, they act as “volunteers” willing to give their time and energy to support cause of the organization, that they are truly passionate. Employee engagement is a continuous process of defining, measuring, analyzing and implementing factors that promote engagement of employees at workplace
  4. 4. Engagement - Other definitions • Employee Engagement is a measureable degree of an employee's positive or negative emotional attachment to their job, colleagues and organization which profoundly influences their willingness to learn & perform at work. ( Source Scarlett Surveys) • It’s the Think-Feel-Act nexus – a connection both rational (think) and emotional (feel), an employee has for their organization, combined with the motivation and willingness (act) to invest discretionary effort to go above and beyond what’s expected of them ( Tower Watson) • An "engaged employee" is one who is fully involved in, and enthusiastic about, his or her work and thus will act in a way that furthers their organization's interests • Engagement is about how connected an employee is to the culture, mission and values of your organization and the degree to which they are enabled and inspired to participate in furthering them. • Engagement is seen as a positive attitude to the job and it is distinguished from both job satisfaction and commitment. It is more temporary and volatile than commitment, which is a more stable perception. (© Copyright 2010 by William J. Rothwell, Ph.D., SPHR 39)
  5. 5. How do experts look at engagement?
  6. 6. How do we measure engagement currently?
  7. 7. • Annual Engagement surveys • Frequent employee surveys, or “pulse surveys”, • Interviews (For e.g. Exit Interviews) • Company's Glassdoor rating? • eNPS • Anything else? Current measures of Employee Engagement
  8. 8. Engagement Surveys 11 PowerPoint Guide 2015 ENGAGEMENT SURVEYS PROS • Easy to execute • Easy to analyze • Multiple “out-of-the-box” solutions • Initially creates a benchmark and then checkpoints CONS • Not highly detailed • Not real time • Doesn’t take into account other work environment factors • Hard to make actionable
  9. 9. Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) • Based off of the popular “Customer Net Promoter Score” framework, introduced by Harvard Business Review in 2003. NPS was developed as a simple way to measure customer loyalty. • eNPS is a similar simple framework to measure internal employee engagement. • On a quarterly basis, send out an anonymous survey that asks all employees one simple question: "On a scale of 0-10, how likely would you be to refer someone to work at ______?“ Also ask- “What’s the primary reason for the score you gave?” • Employees respond on a 0-to-10 point rating scale and are categorized as follows: • Promoters (score 9-10) are loyal enthusiasts who are actively engaged with the organization, and contribute distinctly towards company goals • Passives (score 7-8) are satisfied but unenthusiastic employees, who are vulnerable to competitive offerings and could leave • Detractors (score 0-6) are unhappy employees who can damage your brand and impede growth through negative word-of-mouth.
  10. 10. • To calculate your eNPS you subtract your detractors from your promoters (ignoring passives) and divide by the total number of respondents. eNPS = (promoters-detractors)/total respondents, OR eNPS = % Promoters – % Detractors • The best possible score is +100, the worst possible score is -100. • A positive number is considered to be good (more promoters than detractors) while a score over 50 is considered outstanding. • Key points: • It’s a relative score. Acts as a guide post, which you can use to make changes and see if they are helping or hurting employee morale • Employees are likely to be harsher in an eNPS survey than they would be in a customer NPS survey. • On average, they invest far more time and emotional energy in their relationship with work than they do with the products they buy. Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) (Contd..)
  11. 11. New trends…..Going Digital with Engagement • Engagement Tools like Ving that capture real time recipient interaction and report it through engagement dashboards • Text messages are lost or misinterpreted. Ving clearly and effectively communicates your most important messages by capturing body language, tone of voice, and text in one unique communication package. A cloud-based application, Ving enables you to create a multi-media package containing videos, documents, presentations, audio files, text, and surveys. • Wearable Technology to track employee activity & productivity • For instance, wearables can allow employers to easily track an employee’s time throughout the day and gain a clear picture on where time is being spent, and quickly identify inefficiencies; It can also reduce your sick days • Track the frequency of employer- employee communication through Collaborative Tools like OneDrive, Google Drive, Cloud, and Enterprise Social Networking like Yammer • Tracking employees’ social media engagement
  12. 12. Adopt smarter People Analytics Learn from the best
  13. 13. Smart HR Analytics Choosing the right tool to measure engagement • Intelligent Analytics for performance measurement and leadership development as well as measuring intangibles like network, activities, time use, relationships etc. • Key is Datafication – converting employee activities into measurable, quantifiable data • Predictive People Analytics • Maximize the potential of obtaining empirical data rather than subjective data – bring in a third party for best results • Track metrics to demonstrate performance improvements correlated to improved employee engagement
  14. 14. Mood Indicators 17 PowerPoint Guide 2015 MOOD INDICATORS
  15. 15. 18
  16. 16. Mood Indicators 19 PowerPoint Guide 2015 MOOD INDICATORS PROS • Real-time data • Existing technology solutions • Multiple “out-of-the-box” solutions • Initially creates a benchmark and then checkpoints CONS • Doesn’t always answer “why?” • Typically anonymous • Doesn’t take into account other work environment factors • Can be superficial
  17. 17. Wearables To Track Activities & Emotion 20 PowerPoint Guide 2015 WEARABLES PROS • Multiple, real-time data points • Automatic – not relying on employee action • Can measure behavior, emotion, and physical signals CONS • Employees may consider the approach invasive: “big-brother” • Expensive • Requires significant analysis & follow-up
  18. 18. 21 PowerPoint Guide 2015 IN THE FLOW OF WORK A system to aggregate all data sources and analyze in real time, could be more helpful to get actionable inputs and positively impact the business outcomes

  20. 20. 23 PowerPoint Guide 2015 ENGAGEMENT IN THE FLOW OF WORK PROS • Multiple data points from different systems • Integrated into daily activities • Answers the “why” question better than other options CONS • Needs more planning and coordination • Requires significant analysis & follow-up • Measures engagement more than happiness
  21. 21. Let’s ask ourselves a fundamental question • Their passion • Their excitement • The transferability of their skills • Their network of influence • Their pride to be a part of the organization • Their ability to step up to the next level • Their relations with colleagues in and outside the team • Their ability to think on their feet • Questioning the status quo • Discretionary efforts Through a typical engagement survey, what do we typically try to measure?
  22. 22. • By rolling out a survey and asking a set of questions, are we truly able to measure the level of engagement? OR Are we measuring their beliefs and perceptions? • Are we viewing personal satisfaction as a proxy for engagement? • Should engagement only include personal satisfaction…. OR, Critical components like, strategic alignment with the organization’s goals, driving business impact, advocacy, and competency? Points to ponder
  23. 23. The current engagement surveys, are not really measuring engagement, they are measuring
  24. 24. Some pitfalls in the current surveys • Employees are asked to rate their own engagement – so its one sided/biased data. • It is heavily based on an assumption that the employee is answering honestly, leading to ‘gamed results’ - people telling you what they think you want to hear rather than what they really think. • Assuming that they give honest responses, the answers still provide insights into the ‘attitude’ side of the employees’ psyche and not necessarily what their impact is. They do not connect attitude to business results. • It fails to gather objective data on how much engaged the employees actually are. For instance, discretionary effort!. • The data may also suffer from recency effects rather than looking at data over a substantial period of time.
  25. 25. Have you ever asked the two most important questions? WHY HOW
  26. 26. Know what you want to measure, why & how! • Do you want to measure just the attitude, OR, their impact on business as well? • Relate employee engagement metrics to business results and impact. For instance, • Mary is happy with her manager, but is that leading to product innovation? • John (manager) may be proud to be a part of the organization, but is he able to coach or mentor his team members to build a strong leadership pipeline? • Choose the right tool(s) to measure engagement – is it survey, is it interviews, do you need to look at internal/external data like stay interviews? • Re-examine the frequency – maybe take pulse surveys more often rather than just once in a year. • Establish joint ownership for engagement. Instead of focusing on only one side of the engagement equation, also measure employee ownership.
  27. 27. Measure engagement from both sides of the fence Joint ownership of engagement • A lot of us are only measuring the employee’s attitude towards the organization. • Many organizations continue to ignore the need to empower both managers and employees and often fail to effectively measure engagement from both sides of the fence. • Research has found that most organizations are focused on only one side of the engagement equation while the other half, employee ownership, is not being measured and therefore not being managed. • For instance, you asked the employee if they feel aligned to business goals, but do you communicate those goals to them on time? Are we effectively measuring what the organization does to engage people?
  28. 28. New Paradigm • Employee Engagement is not just about tabulating data and deriving insights, but turning them into actionable, evidence-based strategies that impact positively on an organization's bottom line • It is also about demonstrating to all employees the willingness to change and continuously improve • Role of leadership is critical, in setting the culture and tone of an organization. There are implications for the way organizations hire their leaders – making their ability to engage a top KRA metric. • Emphasis on accountability for engagement is shifting – across all levels. Engagement is not just on the agenda for leaders, managers or HR – it’s the responsibility of every individual. • Concept of organizational listening, combined with new technologies are set to solve many of the longstanding issues around employee wellbeing; • In near future, organizations may not need to wait out significant periods to discover key indicators of stress or dissatisfaction
  29. 29. Looking beyond engagement: Inspired employees are the organization’s currency
  30. 30. Some indicators in use • Employee engagement survey results : • Provide leading indicators, unlike voluntary turnover statistics. • Allows benchmarking results, both against other firms as well as own historical survey data. • Recognition: • Recognition is a key — and free engagement driver, but few firms measure it. • If you budget a nominal amount per department for recognition efforts, funded at the corporate level, you'll be able to track the amount spent on these efforts on a departmental basis. • Employee referral percentage: • % of new hires who have joined your firm because of an internal employee referral. • If none of your internal employees is referring, it may indicate a serious lack of engagement. • Training and development investment: • Best-in-class organizations spend 3-5% of payroll on T&D. • Budgeting and measuring your investment as a percentage of payroll by department will enable you to track who is investing in their employees. • Absenteeism: • Engaged employees are absent less often. • Track rates of absenteeism against Actively Engaged, Ambivalent, or Actively Disengaged employees.
  31. 31. Some indicators in use… • Retention: • Map the retention rates of Actively Engaged, Ambivalent, or Actively Disengaged employees to retention (or attrition) rates. • Performance: • Map the performance rates (based on performance reviews or actual performance in the case of sales and other employees) to Actively Engaged, Ambivalent, or Actively Disengaged employees • Customer Engagement: • Engaged employees are linked to satisfied customers at a correlation coefficient of .85 (i.e., customer satisfaction). • Chart organizational engagement scores against customer engagement scores (or satisfaction scores, as the case may be). • Financial Performance: • Engaged employees create engaged customers who drive revenue and profits. • Track engagement scores against revenue and profit as well, while allowing role of other outside factors and influences as well.
  32. 32. Some other metrics and good indicators… • The ratio of highly engaged employees vs. low engaged employees in a current team • Most frequent collaborator • Do employees complete assignments on time – or ahead of schedule? Do they show attention to detail and excellence in small tasks, as well as more significant assignments? • The amount of work that occurs outside of normal working hours. This is a good indicator of discretionary effort. • The number of network connections and time spent with people outside of immediate team or region. Building of broad networks beyond core team is a sign of high engagement. • The percentage of participation in ad-hoc meetings/initiatives vs. recurring meetings/processes. Participation in only highly structured events can indicate low engagement. • The number of initiatives they take proactively and the quality of their contribution.
  33. 33. Some other good indicators (Contd..) • Number of creative ideas the employee is contributing to the team • Do other team members naturally approach him/her to ask for advice? • Time spent with manager in 1:1s and development plans • Voluntary participation in learning and development programs. • Amount of time spent in supervising the employee – typically low engagement needs more direct supervision. • Social media engagement and participation • Helping a coworker without being asked, or arriving early to finish a project – indicate employees are invested in the company beyond their paychecks. • Employees who approach their supervisors and give suggestions, offer to lead projects, spearhead new programs, or show initiative. • By going to their manager, they exhibit emotional commitment since they trust their boss and rational commitment since they want to go above and beyond their day-to-day work.
  34. 34. Organizations are leveraging Predictive Analytics.. • Targeted retention: • Find out the high risk areas of churn in the future, and focus retention activities on critical few people • Turnover modeling: • Predicting future turnover in business units in specific functions, geographies by looking at factors such as commute time, time since last role change, and performance over time. • One can accelerate hiring efforts accordingly, reducing lead time and panic hiring, which can lead to lower cost, higher quality hiring. • Risk Management: • Profiling of candidates with higher risk of leaving prematurely, or those performing below standard. • Talent Forecasting: • To predict which new hires, based on their profile, are likely to be high fliers and then moving them in to fast track programs

  39. 39. Laszlo Bock SVP, People Operations Google
  40. 40. Google’s gDNA Project Overview A major long-term study aimed at understanding work by the People Innovation lab at Google. • A randomly selected and representative group of over 4,000 Googlers completes two in-depth surveys each year. The survey itself is built on scientifically validated questions and measurement scales. • It asks about traits that are static, like personality; characteristics that change, like attitudes about culture, work projects, and co-workers; and how Googlers fit into the web of relationships at the workplace. • Then, they consider how all these factors interact, as well as with biographical characteristics like tenure, role and performance. • Critically, participation is optional and confidential. “It aims to identify the biggest influencers of a satisfying and productive work experience,”
  41. 41. Google balances out its plentiful perks with a culture of Transparency, Trust, and Inclusion. • Transparency: Sharing is big at Google. • Google founders host a weekly meeting to review news and product launches. • A few weeks into every quarter, the Executive Chairman presents to Googlers most of the exact materials presented to their Board of Directors at their last meeting. • Trust: Google solicits feedback and uses it on everything • From how employees prefer to be compensated….. to the design of their new company bicycles! • Inclusion: Google conducts formal employee surveys at the end of every year. • Employees also get to see everyone else’s feedback, though privacy is protected. • Every Friday, company leaders conduct employee forums to respond to their top 20 most-asked questions.
  42. 42. Objective: Project Oxygen was designed to identify what successful Google managers do. How they did it: The Project Oxygen team spent one year data-mining performance appraisals, employee surveys, nominations for top manager awards, employee complaints. The result was more than 10,000 observations of manager behaviors. The research team complemented the quantitative data with qualitative information from interviews. The interviews produced more than 400 pages of notes, which were coded using standard behavioral science methodologies. The final result was eight behaviors -- things great managers do that make them great. Later that year, the “people analytics” teams at the company produced: “Eight Habits of Highly Effective Google Managers Findings: They found that technical expertise — the ability, say, to write computer code in your sleep — ranked dead last among Google’s big eight. Google’s Project Oxygen

  44. 44. Project Janus: Google Predictive Analysis for Recruitment: • Google is also unique in its strategic approach to hiring because its hiring decisions are made by a group in order to prevent individual hiring managers from hiring people for their own short-term needs • Its research also determined that little value was added beyond four interviews, dramatically shortening time to hire. • One of the few firms to approach recruiting scientifically, it developed an algorithm for predicting which candidates had the highest probability of succeeding after they are hired. • Under project Janus, it developed an algorithm for each large job family that analyzed rejected resumes to identify any top candidates who they might have missed. They found that they had only a 1.5% miss rate, and as a result they hired some of the revisited candidates.
  45. 45. Tony Hsieh CEO, Zappos
  46. 46. Some of Zappos’ Engagement Programs • Zappos Zollars: • The currency of Zappos employees is awarded to those who are recognized when a co- worker or manager feels that they’ve gone above and beyond. Zollars can be spent on Zappos branded goodies, can be donated to a charitable foundation, or be entered in a raffle for bigger prizes. • Shadow Sessions: • Zappos employees are allowed to “shadow” other employees in different departments for a few hours. This helps employees to understand the ins and outs of other departments and the company while also building relationships across the company. • Z’apprentice Program: • Zappos encourages growth and learning through their apprenticeship program. This lets employees check out a new career path to see if they’re a good fit for the role. Employees can apply to become a z’apprentice in any area, including one which they may not have any prior knowledge/skill. When an employee is selected, they have a 90-day tenure in the role. After the 90 days, a mutual decision is made to see if the person is right for the position or not. If not, they are able to return to their previous role at Zappos.
  47. 47. Gary Kelly CEO, Southwest Airlines The airline is the only major airline who has never filed for bankruptcy and has never laid off, furloughed, or given pay cuts to employees.
  48. 48. Some engagement practices… • Variety of Employee Recognition Programs to recognize their hard-working employees and those who go above and beyond their normal job duties. • Biennial employee surveys to gather candid feedback. • Celebrating their anniversaries and employees. For their 40th anniversary in 2011, Southwest celebrated the hard work of their employees. They had a special banquet, printed an anniversary edition of LUVLines (Southwest Airlines’ Employee Magazine), and special 40th anniversary merchandise. Talk about a party! • Employee Enablement: the authority to make snap decisions within boundaries – to make things right in the name of customer service. This latitude not only helps with consumer relations, but also makes employees feel empowered. Teresa Laraba, senior vice president of customers for Southwest, gave the example of a man who approached a flight attendant with the news that he’s wanted to propose to his girlfriend in flight. In an effort to make the moment more memorable for the couple, the flight attendant made the decision to grab a bottle of champagne (at no cost to the customer) and then taught the man how to use the intercom system.
  49. 49. We want Facebook to be one of the best places people can go to learn how to build stuff. If you want to build a company, nothing better than jumping in and trying to build one. But Facebook is also great for entrepreneurs/hackers. If people want to come for a few years and move on and build something great, that's something we're proud of. Mark Zuckerberg CEO, Facebook

  55. 55. HCL Technologies • Prefers study on improving total employee experience , rather than measuring employee engagement. • Prithvi Shergill, CHRO at HCL Technologies , said, "The focus is shifting from engagement to talk about experience. Engagement is a point-in-time measure, so measuring them one day in a year is clearly inadequate. You need a more real-time measure." • HCL leverages a patented tool called 'Smart Survey' to collate effective feedback from employees and work towards the ongoing development and growth of individuals and the organization. A mechanism built in Smart Survey helps the system intelligently trigger a survey to an employee when he/she is undergoing an event change at work. This allows feedback to remain relevant. • How the system is helping: As per the study… • 60% of HCL-ites provide useful feedback vis-a-vis their role expectations from their stakeholders — whether manager or team or peer, • 50% of HCL-ites got guidance on how they could become better professionals leveraging their passion and strengths.
  56. 56. HCL Technologies • Problem statement: • 1 out of every 3 candidates accepting a job offer, was dropping out before joining. (40-day duration) • Strong competition in the sector. • Drop-out was costly: Wasted recruitment spend and effort; Billing loss. • New employees were also clueless about HCL’s “Employees First -Customers Second” structure , OR, the business’s culture of ‘ideapreneurship’. • Solution: Gamification • Games provide the opportunity to engage, enable and empower by addressing intrinsic and interpersonal motivators. • HCL sent all candidates a link to a game on the day they accepted their job offer. The game made information interesting and memorable. Each question had points based on the number of attempts made to answer it correctly, and these translated into various badges and ‘lifelines’. There was also a leaderboard of scores to instill an element of competition, and the opportunity to ‘friend’ even those who are not yet registered. • Results: • The tool was predictive and HCL sourced actively for candidates who had low probability of joining. Out of the 43% of candidates who played the game in the first round, 77% joined the company. • Since the introduction, the renege rate has dropped from 30% to 24% – and the probability of a candidate dropping out after playing the game is 1%, compared with 11% of those who don’t take part. • HCL saved $10 million in recruitment costs in the 18 months of its launch. It also saw direct impact on client relationships and revenue growth, thanks to the predictability of the resource planning process. • HCL is now leveraging gamification to improve engagement among recruitment partners, sales people and customers, and is integrating it with mobile technology. 1 72
