min read

In the rapidly evolving landscape of the workplace, employee preferences, priorities and perspectives are undergoing drastic evolution. As organizations navigate this dynamic terrain, the question arises: Is your enterprise equipped to align with the future of the workplace?

To cultivate meaningful connections and elevate employee experiences, organizations must adopt a humanized approach leveraging machine-learning and insight tools to a workplace engagement strategy—one grounded in empathy and authenticity. This transformative journey enables businesses to foster deeper connections and navigate the complexities of the modern workplace with precision and agility.

Discover why authenticity in the workplace is critical, how machine-learning tools power engagement and explore strategies to redesign the employee experience.

The importance of authenticity in the modern workplace

A staggering 40% of people say the reason for exiting a job is due to the engagement and culture.1 To attract and retain top talent, organizations must transform their workplaces into hubs of personal and professional development with the use of machine-learning tools that harness the insights needed to create authentic environments.  

By prioritizing a workplace culture that fosters authentic relationships and connections based on data and insights derived from machine-learning tools, organizations empower their employees to thrive and contribute to the collective success of the company.

Improve communication and engagement across an enterprise by adopting a modern workplace culture, leveraging an employee engagement platform that facilitates connection and community by:

  • Promoting corporate social responsibility (CSR) and embodying company values to inspire employees and ensuring alignment with the company's beliefs are experienced in every employee interaction.
  • Celebrating diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) to help employees feel safe, respected and connected.2  
  • Forming groups with anyone in your organization with the intent of deepening camaraderie and inclusion over shared interests and goals.
  • Creating data-rich employee profiles providing a clear picture of the personal and professional passions and preferences of every person in your organization.
  • Arming managers with detailed insights, which leads to more impactful conversations and provides targeted guidance on professional development. 

This level of connection leads to what employees expect from today’s workplaces: the latitude to be authentic—a human desire to be seen as a whole person. Employees who can be authentic at work feel 71% more confident, 60% more engaged and 46% happier.3

With the strategic integration of advanced employee engagement tools leveraging the capabilities of machine learning, workplaces can surpass traditional norms and exceed the expectations of their workforce. By harnessing the insights gleaned from these cutting-edge technologies, organizations can optimize their employee experiences, fostering an environment that not only attracts top talent but also cultivates long-term retention. This forward-thinking approach not only bolsters organizational resilience but also positions the company as a leader in talent management and workplace innovation.

Powering employee engagement with machine-learning tools

Enterprises should continually evaluate their employee engagement strategy and explore new ways to inspire and connect their workplace community. As innovative tools and technologies emerge and evolve, companies can better advance connection and inclusivity throughout their organization with insights from machine-learning tools.

A technology-driven workplace engagement platform creates an opportunity to elevate the meaning of the workday and facilitate better connection and inclusivity throughout your organization. Machine learning that forecasts engagement and productivity based on prior patterns can alert your team to shifts in participation and trends.  

An impactful employee experience platform should blend innovative technologies with people-first design—a strategic, enterprise-level tool to foster a workplace culture of connection, collaboration and recognition.

For example, downward turns in employee engagement can lead to detachment, burnout and resignation—costing organizations 15%–20% of total payroll in average voluntary turnover costs.4 But early detection with insights from machine-learning tools through an employee engagement platform allows you to make fast, strategic changes that improve your employee experience. A robust and intelligent platform recognizes these indicators in the early stages.

  • Predictive outcomes: An employee engagement platform powered by machine learning uses statistical models to analyze and draw inferences from patterns in data. By detecting shifts in work behaviors early, managers can find underlying issues and address them right away.  
  • Algorithmic benchmarking: Robust data provides managers with accurate and fair measurements to match reward type with effort and accomplishment. Insight tools and dashboarding consolidate performance and active participation indicators into digestible graphics that gauge current and past levels of engagement and productivity.  

Insights empower your enterprises to conquer high turnover by enacting adaptable engagement strategies for connecting even the most detached employees. Open communication paired with effective solutions drives retention and ignites productivity.

Redesign the employee experience to advance engagement

Across industries, many organizations are faced with workplace engagement challenges. Today, 32% of full- and part-time employees are engaged, while 18% are actively disengaged.5 To address this engagement gap, companies are challenged to increase the quantity and quality of everyday interactions—which are critical in hybrid work environments.

Elevate your employee experience by cultivating a culture of camaraderie, collaboration and profound community within your workplace. Infuse every aspect of your organization with a sense of purpose, fostering connections that transcend physical and virtual boundaries. By prioritizing a people-first approach and harnessing the power of machine-learning tools, you can translate your vision into tangible outcomes that drive engagement and foster a culture of excellence and innovation.

Implementing a company-wide employee engagement platform that features employee groups, connectivity tools, data-rich profiles and integrated dashboarding will elevate your engagement strategies:

  • Meet people where they are with an employee engagement platform that inspires connection and community throughout your company.

  • Gain insightsbased on active participation through polls and gamified experiences that indicate employee productivity and engagement.
  • Explore actionable data and tactical first steps for implementing focused and proactive engagement initiatives.
  • Proactively address challenges with compassion to prevent adversities from escalating and negatively impacting the wellbeing of your employees and retention rates.

Embrace the transformative potential of machine-learning connectivity tools as integral components of your employee-engagement strategy, offering holistic solutions that prioritize authenticity, foster genuine connections and cultivate vibrant communities within your organization.
