Staff Engagement

Your staff are your most valuable asset. Avens will help you meaningfully engage your staff and leverage their insights to optimize your organization. From pulse surveys to deep dive focus groups, we are here to help you deliver timely and actionable results.

Why do employees leave organizations?

Key factors include:

Not feeling appreciated or recognized

Lack of alignment between individual performance goals and organizational goals

Unhealthy workplace culture that does not empower employees to do their best work

Failure to support effective communication “bottom-up” to senior leadership

Failure of senior leadership to use engagement data to optimize performance

Organizations need to quickly identify pain points.

Surveys are an effective way to identify how best to direct limited resources to optimize organizational performance. Avens specializes in enterprise staff engagement, team effectiveness, and diversity, equity, & inclusion surveys.

Pulse Surveys Regularly check-in on all staff across your organization.

  • Each pulse can focus on a new topic
  • Track trends over time, without burdening staff
  • And pulses can be targeted to collect timely feedback on special topics

Staff Appreciation One of our most popular products is our Kudos Card survey. This survey allows staff to send words of appreciation (Kudos) to one another. Our clients have noted that this simple act of recognition has been shown to improve morale and performance.

Just for Fun! Our clients come to us for creative ideas to help staff connect and better get to know one another. Facilitating these connections strengthens team dynamics and improves workplace culture.

Let’s face it, sometimes we just need to have a little fun at work.
