As well documented, employee engagement holds significant importance due to its direct influence on productivity. Engaged employees within your team exhibit heightened focus, motivation, and dedication to their tasks. They assume greater responsibility for their roles and are more inclined to invest additional effort in order to meet or surpass performance targets. This elevated level of productivity directly contributes to the overall success and efficiency of the organisation. So, what engagement tools are at hand to help senior leaders and businesses? 


Here are our seven employee engagement tools that can be valuable additions to your management toolkit:

  1. Employee Feedback Platforms: Tools like SurveyMonkey, Typeform, or specialised employee feedback platforms allow you to gather insights, opinions, and feedback from your team. Helping you to understand their needs, concerns, and areas for improvement.

  3. Recognition and Rewards Platforms: Tools like Bonusly, Kudos, or Kazoo enable peer-to-peer recognition and allow you to reward employees for their contributions and achievements. Recognition and rewards helps any business boost morale and motivation.

  4. Collaboration and Communication Platforms: Tools like Slack, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom facilitate seamless communication and collaboration. They ate widely used for businesses to help bridge the gap for remote or dispersed teams.

  5. Learningand Development Platforms: Tools like LinkedIn Learning, Coursera for Business, or Udemy for Business provide access to a wide range of online courses and resources for skill development and career growth.

  6. Pulse Surveys and Feedback Apps: Platforms like Officevibe, TINYpulse, or Glint allow you to conduct quick, regular surveys to gauge employee sentiment, track engagement levels, and identify areas that may need attention.
