Why measure employee satisfaction?

Most businesses track customer satisfaction, but don’t regularly measure employee satisfaction. However, by executing a long-term strategy of retaining motivated employees that provide great service, you will increase customer satisfaction and profitability.

Unhappy employees who leave your company and voice their grievances are detrimental to your brand. Prioritizing staff wellbeing on the other hand can have wide-ranging benefits for both individuals and employers. Employee focused strategy has become the norm, not the exception in thriving companies and consumers look favorably on organizations investing in people, rather than profits.

By engaging directly with your employees, you can identify what is working well and what needs improving. For example, by frequently using pulse surveys as well as conducting more in-depth satisfaction surveys, you can stay on top of what makes your business effective, allowing you to address issues before they impact customer satisfaction.
