If you look employee engagement up on the internet you will probably find a definition saying something along the lines of "Employee engagement is a workplace approach designed to ensure that employees are committed to their organisation's goals and values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, and are able at the same time to enhance their own sense of well-being"
What employee engagement means to us
Employee engagement is all about getting your staff enthusiastically engaged in their work.
When we designed our ePayslips solution we realised that it had the capacity to be so much more than just an electronic version of the paper payslip. The ePayslip portal provides a ready-made platform for you to communicate with your employees. However, employee engagement starts much earlier during the transition from paper payslips to ePayslips, with communication being a key factor to a smooth implementation.
For effective employee engagement, the first time employees hear about the change to ePayslips shouldn't be when they receive instructions to sign up to their account.
People are often reluctant to change, especially with something as sensitive as payroll, and in our experience, communications to employees about this change helps with uptake and reduces queries.
For our ePayslip clients we have put together a communications toolkit which enables them to deliver the message much sooner, making employees feel like an integral part of the process.
Here are a few examples of what we can offer:
- Custom branded ePayslips, so employees feel this is a service delivered by their employer
- Posters, for display in staff rooms & noticeboards
- Leaflets, explaining how to sign up and use the solution
- Explainer videos, delivering the benefits of the solution to employees
- Custom website with FAQ and employee benefit information
