Increasing Employees Input to Decision Making
With advances in mobile platforms and an exciting array of pulse tools, feedback apps, and anonymous social networking, employees can easily and quickly provide input into decision making. Research, by the Institute for Employment Studies and Towers Perrin, shows that enabling employees to provide input into decision making is one of the top drivers of employee engagement.
Employees can now view and amend personal data, make requests for leave, and access company information. Research from the Aberdeen Group has shown that more control over personal data leads to increased autonomy and higher employee engagement.
Drives Employee Empowerment
Self-service technology increasingly allows employees to take responsibility for their personal and professional development. Latest advances in the technology provides employees with more control. They gain responsibility for their own performance and development. Consequently, their career planning is increasingly being managed by the employee, freeing up their Managers time.
Why Driving Employee Engagement is important?
It’s important because engagement is seen as an important lever that HR can use to drive productivity in the business. Research by Gallup reveals that world class organisations have a near 10-1 ratio of engaged to disengaged employees while average organisations have around 2 to 1. So introducing self-service technology will drive employee engagement and productivity, when implemented properly.
