Why Viva Glint is a game-changer

In today’s competitive business landscape, staying attuned to employee sentiments, fostering a positive culture, and boosting engagement are critical factors for success.

  • In 2022, organisations with high employee engagement showed high resilience, outperforming the broader market. The stats speak for themselves, companies that invest in employee engagement experience:2.5 times higher profit
  • 3 times lower attrition
  • 3 times lower burnout

And that’s just a snippet of the impact of an engaged workforce!

How Viva Glint boosts employee engagement 

After working with 1,200 organisations and performing multiple studies, Glint have found empirical evidence that when organisations invest in employee engagement resources this results in employees that help their organisations outperform the competition in profitability, brand perception, and even financial resilience.

When employees witness action taken on their feedback they become further engaged, self-reporting increased brand loyalty and perception of their organisation and its leaders.

Key benefits include:

  • Transparent action plans: When employees share their thoughts through Viva Glint surveys, they are met with tangible outcomes. Giving employees a voice and actually acting on it sends a strong message that the company values their employee’s opinions and is committed to making positive changes.
  • Managerial support and training: No more drowning in data! Viva Glint equips managers with tools to gain insights into their team sentiment and provide them with tangible action plans.
  • Recognition and appreciation: Employee recognition is a key driver of motivation and engagement. Viva Glint enables organisations to acknowledge and appreciate employee contributions, boosting morale and reinforcing positive behaviours.
  • Aligning with organisational goals: When employees see their individual efforts aligning with the broader organisational goals, their sense of purpose and engagement naturally increases. Viva Glint helps organisations connect the dots between individual contributions and the company’s mission, leading to a more engaged workforce.
  • Empower the employee journey: Viva Glint’s not a one-hit wonder. From day one to the final farewell, Viva Glint is there for the whole ride. Viva Glint offers customisable reporting capabilities that allow you to measure and report the success of your employee’s journey. Leadership can use this to develop strategies to boost retention and engagement.
  • Employee well-being initiatives: Feedback and insights captured in Viva Glint can shed light on employee well-being and work-related stress factors. Armed with this information, organisations can implement wellness programs and policies that address employee needs, promoting a healthier and more engaged workforce.
  • Celebrating diversity and inclusion: Viva Glint’s data-driven insights can help identify diversity-related challenges and opportunities, enabling organisations to create more inclusive environments where all employees can thrive.
  • Continuous improvement: Improving employee engagement is not a one-time effort; it requires consistent attention. Viva Glint’s analytics help organisations track engagement over time, enabling them to monitor the impact of initiatives and adjust strategies as needed to maintain high levels of engagement. Viva Glint’s predictive insights will give you foresight for spotting trends and challenges before they knock on your door.
