Ottawa ON (Vocus/PRWEB) February 28, 2011
Employee engagement is a measure of how employees feel and speak about their employer, how they interact with others, and how committed they are to go "above and beyond" to realize business objectives. The distance between executives and employees is generally large - there are no effective techniques or tools in place to engage employees and tap into the hundreds and thousands of highly valuable ideas for improvement and problem resolution. Bridge that distance, and you have corporate and employee alignment and powerful return on the most important asset – your people. The value of being listened to and recognized is paramount to a successful workforce and, by definition, a successful company.
PiT-Stop combined with FuseDiligence™ provides a perfect environment to manage the PiT-Stop methodology and provide full life cycle improvement. The platform allows organizations to carry forward the initial PiT-Stop experience, which is a comprehensive starting inventory and organization of employee ideas based on team interviews. Then through FuseDiligence, we provide an intuitive web based collaborative solution to measure, mentor and manage the evolution and implementation of ideas on an on-going basis.
PiT-Stop on FuseDiligence also brings together input from individuals absent from the initial face-to-face interviews, or from remote locations or branches, and ongoing contributions. It helps ensure that organizations achieve substantial improvement in operating, tactical and strategic benefits revealed by the initial PiT-Stop exercise. The PiT-Stop process combined with FuseDiligence provides a whopping ROI both near term and long term.
FuseDiligence can provide a way for PiT-Stop experts to monitor progress and coach or mentor the newly trained internal idea management resources. Better follow through with a PiT-Stop initiative helps to ensure enhanced decision making, improved operational effectiveness, and an improved bottom line.
"What a perfect union. Everyone’s objectives are the same - who doesn’t want to harness the power of employee knowledge, skills and observation. And what employee wants to work for an employer that does not value their input. Everyone wants a voice and wants to work for a highly successful company. Without the initial momentum created by PiT-Stop and then without the ease of FuseDiligence to add an intuitive management framework, this was simply too daunting a process," says Greg Waite, CEO of FuseTalk.
Bernie Sander, President of Innovation Transfer, adds, “We generate so much good will, momentum and phenomenal value during a PiT-Stop week that it’s wonderful to see employee and management input make its way into a leading discussion- based collaborative platform.”
FuseDiligence for PiT-Stop is available now through FuseTalk and Innovation Transfer.
