How WorkStride Can Help

Clearly, some aspects of employee engagement cannot be addressed by any software platform. But software is a great tool to help you along the journey to becoming a better place to work. Here’s how!

Recognize employees for great work.

A 2015 Harvard Business Review poll with Harris Interactive found that 63% of employees felt that not recognizing employee achievements prevented their leaders from being effective. WorkStride provides a user-friendly way for employees to send and receive recognition. You pick the values and actions you’d like to promote in your organization and we’ll help you build award types that reinforce them.

Encourage managers to connect with employees.

Although it is normally labeled as a concern for HR, Gallup has found that it’s actually managers who account for 70% of the variance in employee engagement! WorkStride enables managers to see how their teams are performing and recognize great work. Administrators can easily see manager activity to monitor program usage, and automated reminders can be set to encourage participation.
