What is it?
At the end of the survey your employees will receive a “My Engagement (ME) Report.” It is a personalized report that allows your employees to gain immediate feedback on their engagement with your organization. It also provides some suggestions on ways each employee can improve their own engagement. The report is confidential, and only employees have access to their report. Employees will have the option to download or email themselves a copy of the report. Most and least favorable categories are shown so that they know their strengths and opportunities. Quick Impacts provide them with simple suggestions on how to improve their own engagement based on your lowest favorable categories. See a preview of the report here
What is the benefit of using the ME Report?
While employee feedback continues to be collected during the survey, the ME Report bridges the gap before organizations send a Post-Survey Thank You Message once the survey closes or before results are communicated. The ME Report thanks your employees for participating in the survey, reiterates why engagement is important, explains high-level next steps with survey data, and provides tips for improving their own engagement, all immediately after they participate.
The ME Report also promotes the philosophy that every employee plays a role in creating an engaged workforce, not just leaders and managers. Every employee can identify barriers to his/her personal engagement and take action to address those barriers.
Would you recommend the ME Report to any organization?
Yes! Regardless of industry or how many years an organization has been measuring employee engagement, organizations have found this report helpful. You can choose to opt out of the report, though.
Organizations that have chosen to not use the ME Report have done so because they may have positioned Employee Engagement as a leadership or manager initiative in the past and want a year to evolve their internal philosophy.
Note: The ME Report is only available for Web-based surveys.
Should we communicate to employees about the ME Report?
After employees submit their employee engagement survey, the next Web page they see describes the ME Report. There is also language that emphasizes that the report is confidential and that employees should save the ME Report as a PDF or email it to themselves for future reference (if employees exit the Web browser without saving or emailing the report, it will not be retrievable since it is a confidential report only visible to the employee).
We find that it doesn’t hurt for organizations to mention the ME Report in pre-survey communications to employees, especially if the philosophy behind the ME Report is a shift to your internal philosophy on employee engagement. This prevents employees from being confused or exiting the Web browser before saving or emailing their personal report.
How exactly does the ME Report work?
When designing your employee engagement survey, Quantum Workplace will automatically turn on the ME Report unless you request to not use it. Quantum Workplace takes care of the rest of the setup for you.
Once your survey launches, employees will see their personalized report once they submit their Web survey. The top of the report that thanks employees for participating in the survey will be the same on employee’s report. The bottom of the report that explains why engagement is important and describes what happens next in relation to employee engagement will also be the same on every employee’s report. However, the middle of the report will be unique to the employee, based on how he or she responded to the Likert agreement scale survey items:
- The categories of survey items that the employee rated highest (most favorably) and lowest (least favorably) will show.
- It’s uncommon for an employee to rate every single survey item the same (preventing a true strength or opportunity from surfacing). In this case, two survey item categories are displayed for highest and lowest.
- “Ideas to make an impact” display based on the categories the employee rated survey items least favorably.
- Each survey item has an impact statement associated that Quantum Workplace has developed. Therefore, if two employees rate the same two survey item categories lowest, they will see the same “ideas to make an impact” on their ME Report.
Can we customize the ME Report?
The ME Report is designed to be a helpful communication and action-oriented tool, but it’s also designed to be general enough to work in any organization.
The “what happens with the survey results” section at the bottom of the report can be customized, but these represent the next steps that Quantum Workplace recommends to ensure momentum continues and local action takes place. If you need to adjust these bullets, please notify your Client Success Manager (CSM) during the pre-survey design process.
