Southampton, Hampshire (PRWEB) September 20, 2009
eDigitalResearch has today announced the launch of eDigitalHR, a range of research, insight and internal communications tools that will help resource-constrained HR teams to better engage their employees to enhance satisfaction, loyalty and business productivity.
Given the state of the economy, with revenues down and costs up, employee engagement is important in helping businesses to become more resilient and build stronger business practices. In recognition of this, Government initiatives are focusing on encouraging organisations to actively engage and inspire their employees to speed up the process of economic recovery.
eDigitalHR has been developed to help HR teams improve employee engagement. It provides them with the tools to gain rapid and invaluable insight from employees using mechanisms such as satisfaction surveys, online communities and 360 appraisals, creating a listening culture where employers have regular dialogue with their staff.
Using the Internet or company Intranet, satisfaction surveys can be branded and completed either in one session or at the employee's leisure, depending on business requirement. Rapid qualitative and quantitative analysis can then be conducted into trends, strengths, weaknesses and recommendations.
An online community can be built so that HR teams can rapidly share information about the business, while employees can share their views or plan social events in order to foster a better team spirit. eDigitalHR can also take the pain out of the appraisal process by supporting all types of communication, from one-to-one interviews with the employee to 360-degree reviews, where input is required from multiple parties. Comments and performance ratings can then be exported and distilled to provide a rapid personal development plan.
Michelle Fuller, Director of eDigitalResearch comments: "Your employees are your most valuable assets and by engaging with them better, you can increase satisfaction and loyalty. A fully engaged workforce will result in increased motivation and commitment, helping the business to become more resilient when times are tough. eDigitalHR provides a cost-effective and timely way to better connect people within the business so that they feel 'a part of the business'."
