An automated, scalable platform for employee opinion and action, proven to improve organisational performance

London, September 28, 2016 – Harris Interactive UK Ltd, a leading consultative market research agency, announces the launch of Employee Power™, – an automated and scalable solution for organisations to survey employees and highlight key areas for improvement to boost organisational performance.

Employee Power™ has been developed to simplify and automate employee survey creation, data collection, reporting, benchmarking, and action planning. The platform will deliver actionable insights to clients at the speed their organisations demand, ultimately enabling them to make more appropriate and rapid decisions.

Commenting on the product, John Backhouse, Head of Employee Insight at Harris Interactive said:

“Harris Interactive has an enviable track record in helping organisations realise the full potential of their employees, and as a result, drive significant performance improvements. It is no coincidence that many of the organisations we work with have seen their employee engagement score double, leading to significant increases in performance metrics such as customer satisfaction, productivity, sales and operating profit. The launch of Employee Power™ means clients still receive these fantastic outcomes, but with a greater speed and simplicity, and at a lower cost, than previously available.”

Key features and benefits of Employee Power™ include:

  • Speed and ease of set-up and deployment
    With ready-to-go survey metrics that have been rigorously tried and tested, organisations can start their Employee Power™ survey as quickly as possible, whilst still ensuring quality, confidentiality, and accessibility for all
  • Confidence in using a proven model and approach
    Employee Power™ uses Harris Interactive’s proprietary performance modelling with purpose, people, engagement and productivity at its heart
  • Impactful reporting for a time-challenged audience
    The Employee Power™ hub has been developed with client input to balance the needs of different stakeholders, including access to dashboard and detailed results
  • Benchmarking
    Among other benchmarks, Harris Interactive can also provide insight onto how the general population feel about their work life, removing a major weakness in traditional benchmarks by giving a comparison on how people are feeling across all organisations, not just those paying an agency for an employee survey

The Employee Power™ solution is further complemented by a range of additional Harris Interactive expertise including pre and post qualitative research, advanced analytics including modelling, presentation/workshop consulting, pulse surveys and pop-up communities.

Harris Interactive’s Head of Research Susan Vidler commented:

““We are delighted to launch Employee Power™. It has been developed to meet the demand for best-in-class methodology alongside easy to use outputs and faster turnaround times empowering clients to make impactful decisions faster.”
