Reality-Based Engagement is the approach that finally allows you to turn all of your employee engagement efforts and investments into real business results.
Not all employees are created equal. Some employees are driving your business results and others are just collecting a paycheck. The opinions of these very different employees shouldn’t be treated equally when it comes to deciding how to manage your business.
The opinions of personally accountable employees who are committed to results and seek continuous improvement are highly credible. They take responsibility for results even when they miss the mark. When these employees speak, you should listen intently to what they say.
In contrast, you may have some employees who act like entitled victims. They focus solely on what they don’t have and blame others when things don’t go as planned. Their opinions about how to run your business simply aren’t credible and should be discounted.
The key to turning employee engagement and satisfaction survey efforts into results is focusing your efforts on engaging your most valuable, accountable employees—not all employees.
We can show you how.
The Reality-Check Survey: Restoring Sanity to Your Employee Engagement Process
Our Reality-Check employee survey is where accountability and engagement connect. Our tool integrates a research-validated personal accountability assessment with an established employee engagement survey. As each employee completes the survey, they are assessed for personal accountability.
Reality-Check enables you to view your company engagement results sorted by the accountability scores of your employees. You will hear the voices and opinions of your most valuable employees loud and clear. And, you’ll know that your engagement action plans are impacting the right employees to drive results.
The Reality-Based Engagement Process
Once you’ve decided to implement Reality-Based Engagement in your organization, our team will guide you through a four-phase process to set up and execute the Reality-Check engagement survey.
During this phase, we work with your team to configure the Reality-Check survey for data collection. In design, we will determine what external benchmarks and custom demographics you would like to add to ensure that the final data is robust and fulfills your needs.
This is when the survey is open for employees to complete. Typically, the survey is open for 10-15 business days. You will be able to monitor the survey response and completion rates in real time as we collect data.
Once the survey is closed, the data is prepared for analysis and reporting. Once the data is ready, you will be given full access to your data to begin your own analysis. In addition, our team will perform a deep analysis of your engagement and accountability scores. Based on this analysis, we will present to you an Executive Summary of your organization’s results.
In addition to the Executive Summary of results, we also present you with a series of recommendations for future action plans based on the results. These action plans will guide your next steps on how to positively impact organizational performance. We will also provide some initial Reality-Based Engagement training and coaching to your managers and leaders. Reality-Based Engagement is about more than improving engagement scores—it’s about improving results.
