Employee Engagement accounts for at least 70% of the variance in productivity (this equally holds true with remote work engagement), and productivity is strongly linked to business performance & outcomes. But from our work with remote workplaces (see how we improved remote work engagement & business profitability in the Covid-19 era), most managers of remote workers have a particular challenge — keeping productivity levels consistent with high degree of confidence & certainty – this constraint exists by design as due to limited ability to influence remote employees they may rarely see and may barely know.
Managing remote employees effectively requires an approach re-calibrated to fit the employees. Any fallback here, the downside is direct impact on business outcomes, which often is too severe. Which is why remote work engagement becomes all the more critical, indicative (with a definite degree of certainty) of the expected business performance & productivity at expected intervals.
The Brew’s Remote Work Engagement Toolkit consists of 2 critical employee measures:
Remote Work Effectiveness Survey: With The Brew’s Remote Work Effectiveness Survey, organizations can quickly learn how their remote workforce is doing, what they need, and how they can support them for better outcomes. With inputs from this tool, your HR team can assess a number of work-from-home success factors including:
- Autonomy (Consider this, employees scoring high on this, have 50% greater productivity than low scorers)
- Efficiency (Consider this, employees scoring high on this are 69% more likely to stay for three years)
- Quality of interaction with managers (Employees scoring high on both, Managers & Colleagues are 58% more likely to stay for more than three years)
- Quality of interaction with colleagues
- Quality of organizational communication (Employees scoring high on this are 64% more likely to have higher satisfaction, & leading to reduced chances of burnout)
Psychological Safety & Mental Health Index: For Leaders & Managers, it’s very important to understand the sentiment of employees around three distinct factors of psychological safety & mental health: clear leadership & expectations, physiological & social support, and workload management, especially in a remote work environment. As evident from its name, this index is a combination of psychological safety & mental health, the former is an enabler, while the latter is a hygiene element. it is imperative to measure the confidence, conviction, & trust to ascertain the team’s preparedness in fulfilling the objectives and hence, it’s important for organizations to keep check on these, ensuring embeddedness & work-ability of the workforce.
The Brew’s Remote Work engagement toolkit helps organizations evaluate several factors to gauge the demonstrated capability to remote work engagement, namely the culture, the technology, impact on workflows and the outcome.
