We took out engage as it ticked boxes that other companies couldn’t offer - mostly around the live temperature test of engagement which was incredibly important to us.
We had also ditched our appraisals, so it made sense to have an alternative way of managing performance.
A few months in and we realised that actually it was far a more powerful tool - the people team could use the data to spot potential flight risks.
We learnt that we could make simple changes to our people’s experience and lift their engagement on the spot by understanding individually what was motivating them and demotivating them.
We intend to use the data to both support our peoples ongoing development but also to hold our leaders to account.
