Looking toward the future

As companies continue to work remotely, it can be challenging to track how employees are feeling, engaging, and performing. For company leaders to make informed business and people decisions during the pandemic, they need access to robust people insights and employee feedback in order to lead their companies successfully and create a better, safer workplace for their employees.
Recently, our global people science team released a free pulse survey to help managers and leaders evaluate their workplace’s internal response to the COVID-19 pandemic. HR and people leaders can use this tool to identify the top drivers for company confidence-building, and whether employees are feeling supported during the COVID-19 pandemic.
