Creating Employee Engagement Action Plans that Work

Every organization wants to increase employee engagement but formulating an employee engagement action plan that works can be difficult. An effective plan forces organizations to identify why their employee engagement may be lagging, brainstorm potential solutions, and find a way to implement those solutions so they won’t be lost in the day-to-day shuffle. It requires resources like time and money where organizations may already feel constrained.

That said, the benefits of effective employee engagement action plans are worth the investment. Engaged team members are more productive and have higher retention rates than their disengaged colleagues, consistently doing their utmost to help their organization pursue its goals. If your organization is ready for an employee engagement initiative but you aren’t sure how to get started, Echo360 has developed an Echosystem of educational tools to help you launch it with a bang.


Conduct an Employee Engagement Survey

An employee engagement action plan needs to be specific, which means that you need to know what issues you’re trying to address before anything else. EchoEngage makes it easy to send an organization-wide survey to every member of your team. Participants can respond on their mobile devices, via an internet browser, or on dedicated clickers during in-person live events for maximal flexibility. You can also assess current knowledge as an engagement indicator in the Echosystem. Write questions in EchoEngage tools, or take advantage of EchoExam question content provided by industry experts to get the information you need. 

Share Your Employee Engagement Action Plan

Even the best employee engagement action plans accomplish little if team members don’t know what they are or how they will be measured, so you have to share them. EchoVideo can help you capture a video of yourself explaining what your goals are, what timetable you hope to achieve them in, and how success will be determined. You can then use ASR technology to caption your video and add it to a searchable index to make it easier for employees to find specific points. Then, you can embed the video in EchoPoll, EchoAuthor courses, or post it online to ensure that everyone has access to it.  

Analyze the Data

Once you’ve collected the data, the next step is to examine it for actionable insights. EchoEngage provides tools that let you sort responses by organization, department, or individual to find patterns that you might want to address. Individuals can also leave comments that may provide needed context for all of the data you collect. Remember to go over everything carefully even if it looks like you did well in a particular area. The goal is to come up with an employee engagement action plan to better your organization, not make you feel good about the status quo.

Create Focus Groups

Once you’ve identified a few areas where your organization could improve, assign groups of people to explore potential solutions. EchoEngage’s EchoPoll has a built-in VLE (or Virtual Learning Environment) with breakout rooms that let you convene group meetings online, saving time and money compared to in-person meetings. You can share results and even feedback without compromising participant privacy to better facilitate group discussions. You want communication to be as open as possible to ensure that no good idea goes undiscovered.

Follow Through

This is where many employee engagement action plans fall apart. Once your plan is in place, somebody must be put in charge of seeing it through to the end. You don’t have to change anything if you’re on target, but if periodic pulse surveys indicate that your initiative isn’t having the desired impact you have to go back to the drawing board. An ineffective employee engagement action plan is frequently worse than doing nothing since team members will feel that you don’t value them or your opinions at all.
