Achievers said the platform was designed to enable more connected work experiences
Employee voice and recognition provider Achievers has announced the launch an Employee Experience Platform as a centralised location for employee experience programmes.
Citing data from its Workforce Institute 2021 Engagement and Retention Report that found just 21% of employees described themselves as very engaged, and that nearly half feel less connected to their companies and colleagues compared to before the pandemic, Achievers said the platform was designed to enable smarter and more connected work experiences.
“The recognition and rewards space has evolved, and so have we,” said Jeff Cates, CEO and president at Achievers. “We have the broadest employee experience platform in the industry from high frequency social recognition to continuous performance management and voice of the employee.
“Focusing on new and emerging problems, it’s about combining digital systems and workflows with behavioural science for a seamless experience. This is what our new platform is all about — it’s about making it easy to lean into the impact of recognition on inclusion and belonging.”
Among the platform’s features are:
Achievers said employees with a strong sense of belonging were twice as likely to be engaged – and that over a third of employees reporting a low sense of belonging said they had never received formal recognition.
“This data-driven model of belonging provides powerful scaffolding to guide organisations through the complexities and priorities of building the employee experience in ways that activate an employee-powered culture,” said Dr. Natalie Baumgartner, Chief Workforce Scientist at Achievers. “Success in driving each of the five belonging factors predicts increased employee engagement, job satisfaction, and mental health — while also decreasing fatigue and emotional exhaustion.”
