The client is a leading US-based manufacturer of power solutions. They have a large pool of employees spread across more than 50 geographies.

The client wanted to streamline talent management and enhance the employee experience to attract and retain qualified talent. However, they lacked a structured employee engagement program to cater to the vast employee base. They chose Infosys to implement a global survey using Qualtrics and glean actionable insights for effective employee engagement.

Key Challenges

  • A large segment of employees was offline, i.e., they did not have real-time access to emails
  • The lack of any recent employee engagement surveys meant the absence of baseline KPIs for measurement
  • Since the manufacturer operated in over 50 countries, the planned survey had to adhere to different local guidelines and employment laws along with requisite approvals, such as from the European Works Councils worker’s council in European countries
  • Lack of clear methodology to improve/enhance employee engagement and reduce attrition

The Solution

The client decided to revamp their entire employee experience starting with an annual employee engagement survey that would later extend to other important touchpoints during an employee’s journey.

  • Advisory and re-design: Infosys provided advisory services to the client to design the annual engagement survey. The key indices chosen were leadership, wellness, inclusion, and overall experience
  • Segregation of duties: By segregating duties, Infosys created roles and permissions in Qualtrics to maintain confidentiality of sensitive data. The design was such that two people had to combine their access permissions in order to attribute response data to the actual employee. This helped assure the about the privacy and confidentiality of the survey’s responses
  • Prototype approach: To overcome the challenge of no available baseline, Infosys suggested prototyping the survey through a pilot launch in a chosen business unit. This ensured that the survey’s KPIs satisfied the insights required by the talent management team
