Businesses and investment go hand in hand, a business makes several investments to ensure its long-term success. However, the most important investment that any company makes is an investment in its workforce. A company is as good as its employees and making sure that your company has healthy employee engagement is extremely important.
Employee Engagement is a measure of how committed and aligned a company's employees are with its purpose, vision and mission. A highly engaged workforce enjoys the process of their daily jobs and career plans as they help the company achieve its objectives. Such a workforce leads to a very positive and welcoming culture, one that also serves a company's customers with utmost care and delivers value consistently
Creating engagement is crucial for any company to truly understand its employees. Giving and receiving constructive feedback is the first step to a business' unprecedented growth.
This understanding guides employer-employee relations and drives performance and participation. With an increased focus on engagement comes an increase in productivity and performance which further leads to a positive work environment.
A company's employees always have certain bouquets and brickbats to offer. However, an employee freely expressing feedback for the company might be sometimes misinterpreted, making it difficult for employees to truly share their thoughts about their workplace.
Similarly, the hierarchical structure of businesses also proves to be an obstacle for employees to communicate their woes directly to the company.
This is why employee engagement surveys are extremely important for any business to maintain a clear flow of communication. Employee engagement surveys provide a platform for all employees to voice their concerns confidentially as well as appreciate the positive aspects of their company.
We believe that offering feedback can put an employee in a tough spot as they might fear the risk of revelation if the survey is conducted internally. Therefore, the best way to conduct Employee Engagement Surveys is through an external privacy enabled platform, such as Google Forms, Survey Monkey etc. which is managed by an external consultant to avoid any internal repercussions to employees.
This anxiety regarding secrecy might lead to inaccurate and disingenuous results. Outsourcing the task of designing and conducting the survey to an HR Consultancy firm like Shrofile, will eliminate the fear of judgment, ensuring that the feedback the company receives is true and honest.
Recruitment of talent is only the primary step that a company undertakes in a long journey of workforce development. Shrofile believes that it is important for any business to ensure that their employees remain motivated, dedicated, and engaged throughout their tenure and continue to work as brand ambassadors for the company even after their term is over. One way to get a grip on that is through employee engagement surveys. Employee engagement is assessed in terms of an employee's connection with their job, their willingness and passion for working for the company, and their attitude towards their job.
An employee engagement survey is a simple and effective method to receive feedback from your workforce to be able to assess the degree of their commitment to your company and their enthusiasm for the job.
These surveys are filled in anonymously and encourage employees to express themselves honestly.
It is ensured that the employees feel that they are in a safe environment while taking the survey and don't feel uneasy communicating themselves fairly.
Once you learn the causes of low engagement, you can work towards eliminating those causes from your workspace.
It is always advisable to consult HR Management agencies like Shrofile that can create a customized employee engagement survey that is best suited to your company's needs.
With multiple options to choose from, selecting the right employee engagement survey can be confusing. However, we can help you increase your employee engagement significantly by creating and designing an employee engagement survey or a pulse survey that is bespoke and exclusive.
We start by formulating an understanding of the company's values and aspirations so that the survey questions can be successfully aligned with the company's vision. After identifying the objective of the survey and the reason behind conducting it, we undertake a careful analysis of the data collected through our employee engagement survey. We then engage in a detailed assessment of the feedback received and recommend action that can be taken to improve the current engagement levels effectively.
We also provide insightful analysis and actionable recommendations to senior-level management and closely assist the company throughout the implementation process, making the process as smooth and effective for the company as possible.
Strong employee engagement is the marker of a healthy work environment. Being recognized as an ideal workplace is an aspiration for every company.
We help turn this dream into reality by helping companies create a workspace that is inspiring and nurturing.
Drawing on our findings, we help companies guarantee a positive experience for their employees and prepare companies to participate in the widely regarded "great place to work" survey.
Crafting the perfect employee engagement survey can prove to be tricky and time-consuming. However, a pulse survey is a time and cost-effective solution to raise employee engagement constructively.
A pulse survey offers the chance for a quick review of employee feedback by the employer. An effective alternative to the long and extensive yearly employee engagement survey, a pulse survey lets you target a specific area and ask short and direct questions relevant to the selected area.
Pulse surveys take lesser time to be completed and can be used to maintain employee engagement consistently as circulating them regularly is relatively easier.
Protecting participant identity and ensuring that the employee can submit feedback without fearing the consequences is crucial when circulating an employee engagement survey or a pulse survey.
However, when a company chooses to perform the survey internally, the employees are bound to feel anxious and give biased feedback. When you outsource the task to a professional HR Consultancy like Shrofile, the participants don't feel threatened or pressured.
By involving a third party in the process, you ensure that the result you receive is completely genuine and that the criticism and appreciation are coming from an honest experience.
Always keep in mind that the survey must be professional and the questions must be formulated keeping in mind, both the employer and the employee. Designing the perfect employee engagement survey is a skill that takes time and experience to master.
So let us use our experience and expertise to help your company increase its employee engagement!

As an entrepreneur, I was so obsessed with product and marketing that I had scant time to think of the most important resource in any organisation - its people. My engagement with Neha Lal, and her team at Shrofile, in 2021 has resulted in a complete transformation in the way I think - In our people and HR processes, and in the culture of our company. Neha gives a project 150%. She goes that extra mile, even after the engagement is over, to ensure that the change she intended to bring about is enduring. Her biggest differentiator is that she tailor makes her solutions to address the different needs and gaps in each company’s journey. Her approach is highly personalised, very creative, passionate and extremely thorough. She has engineered a profound transformation in our company - the results of which are already apparent just 6 months after her engagement ended. I met Neha as a consultant, but now she is a friend, mentor and true supporter of our brand. Thank you Neha and Team Shrofile!
"We have been using Shrofile for overseas hiring. Shrofile has enabled us to screen candidates located across 10 countries and share their video interviews with evaluators / interviewers based in UK and India. We are dealing with multiple time zones and geographies. Shrofile asynchronous video interviewing platform has made it super easy for us. Candidates can respond when they want from any location; we can review them at our own convenience. The platform works seamlessly. It's self serve and the interface is simple and intuitive.
" STL used Shrofile's video profiling tool for our campus connect program and it helped us drastically reduce time, cost and efforts to screen students via traditional ways. We set up a few questions for candidates to respond & the candidates were able to respond to them through short videos. During the entire process there were no logistical challenges, no travel involved, no synchronisation of calendars. Each candidate got a fair chance and we got a very good gauge of their personality and communication. Since the pre-determined questions were same to all, the interviewer panel could track relative performance and compare making it more consistent and have same playing field across. Shrofile can change the way we hire today!"
"We used Shrofile at Shopclues for our internship hiring. We had a flood of applications and it was difficult for us to scan through so many profiles. We approached Shrofile for enabling the hiring process through their video interviewing platform. We got very good feedback from the candidates about their experience with Shrofile. We were able to swiftly shortlist and close the open positions. We could customise the questions and evaluate each candidate. The platform is completely self serve and easy to use. Shrofile also helped us position the process of interviews as innovative one and created the much needed buzz.
"Being in the recruitment industry for more than 20+ years, I have seen many innovations. I believe Video is the future. Shrofile is a platform I endorse for asynchronous video interviews, personality gauge of candidates and candidate engagement. Using Shrofile, the world of hospitality can go beyond a resume to understand the personality of individuals and gauge fitment. "
I love the platform! It really helped me show-off my personality to companies. The topics on the app enabled me to talk about my experiences in a structured way. The video recording process is simple as it allows camera shy people, like me, to talk about themselves. Can't think of any other platform which would enable me to showcase my soft skills in such a cool manner.
Honestly, I did not expect an Indian startup to build something of this sort. It's a brilliant app and allows me to showcase those aspects of my personality which I've never been able to. The video making process is also fun, keep up the good work guys.
Shrofile has given me a way to express who I really am. Video monologues project the personality of every individual and enables the viewer to experience the magic of one's personality. Creating videos and introspecting is something I look forward to everyday!
Employee Engagement Surveys are designed to measure and assess how motivated and engaged your employees are to perform their best at work each day.
Simply asking questions and providing employees with the chance to make their voices heard can lead to more positive behaviors and improve engagement.
Employee surveys are an effective tool to understand the mood and concerns of employees, especially during these challenging times. Surveys help organizations uncover the issues that impact productivity and engagement, and when done correctly, provide critical data that can be leveraged to improve company culture.
An employee culture survey measures the point of view of employees and is designed to assess whether it aligns with that of the organization or its departments. Employee engagement surveys measure employees' commitment, motivation, sense of purpose and passion for their work and organization.
Once your organization has developed a listening strategy that prioritizes taking action on feedback, administer surveys 4 to 5 times a year to achieve optimal results. Supplement an annual employee engagement survey with pulse and lifecycle surveys to gauge the success of your HR initiatives.
Pro: Employee surveys show that a company values worker input and gives them a positive outlet to air frustrations and grievances. It can make workers feel like they are being heard.
Con: Employee surveys, not properly handled, can actually increase employee mistrust.
