There are many ways to measure the effectiveness of a recognition program: employee performance reports, employee turnover rate, employee satisfaction surveys.
If you have no surveys in place, you might want to start with a quick 3 question survey using Google Surveys. Create and send out your survey before implementing Guusto to get an understanding of how your employees feel about the current state of employee engagement.
- Do you feel appreciated by your superiors for your contributions? 1 - 10
- Do you think the company needs to do more to recognize employees? 1 - 10
- How likely would you be to recommend a friend to work at our company? 1 - 10
After running a Guusto program for 6+ months, send out the same survey to your employees to see your company's improvement in employee engagement. You may also want to include a question to see how they like the Guusto system.
