Beyond Transactions: HCM with Engagement at the Core

You may already understand the benefits of a highly engaged workforce - increased productivity, lower absenteeism, and better talent retention. You may even be surveying your employees to measure their engagement. Or, like many companies, you may be turning to niche solutions, such as rewards and recognition or employee wellness, to improve employee engagement.

But you probably never thought about your core HCM system as a platform to engage your workforce. The platform your employees need to access on a regular basis for payroll, benefits, or company communications may be the most powerful tool to achieve employee engagement.

So how do we move beyond the buzzword of engagement and start to truly impact employee engagement in a systematic, sustainable way? In this interactive Lightpaper, we'll dive deeper into employee engagement and uncover strategies for how companies can leverage HR technology as a driver to achieve this imperative.

“70% of American workers are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” and are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive.”

*State of the American workplace – Gallup 2013 & Job seeker Nation Survey – Jobvite 2014

It’s no secret that employee engagement is a serious challenge – and costly. But while most companies recognize the benefits of a highly engaged workforce, only a select few have sustainable strategies in place that effectively tackle engagement head on. Leading organizations such as Twilio and California Pizza Kitchen are systematically fostering engagement before an employee’s first day on the job. Having implemented a more robust onboarding program, they are seeing improvements in key talent metrics and are consistently winning the war for talent. 
Of course, employee engagement poses unique challenges for every organization – and talent strategies aren’t one-size-fits-all. In order to better understand the role onboarding plays, Brandon Hall Group and cfactor Works have invited a few of today’s foremost human resources and talent acquisition leaders to discuss key findings from our latest report, Drivers of Engagement in High-Performance Onboarding. 

Topics Covered Will Include: 

  • 5 Essential Elements of High-Performance Onboarding 
  • Key Practices for Gauging Impact 
  • The Importance of Talent Technology
