This month’s feature release of Xoxoday’s people engagement platform brings about new structure in reports, better navigation, admin-capabilities, and more. Let’s have a look at what changed.

1. Track Your Rewards Program to the Last Decimal with Points Overview

Before the new infographic report structure, you had to download a spreadsheet wherein the point details were mentioned. Now keep track of every point through the points overview section in the rewards and recognition report system. The tally of points can be viewed in R&R Reports in which the sourcing of points and application of points is clearly signified.

Get a comprehensive view of all stages of your Rewards & Recognition Program, from the creation of reward points, allocation to budgets, rewarding of employees, and finally points redemption.

Now, you can keep a record of new points added in the system, points unused and carried forward, as well as the rewarded and gifted. A detailed spend history of the addition and exhaustion of the points can be accessed by viewing details of a particular application of points.

Below the points overview, the Funds Overview section shows the application and sources of funds in your currency. This gives a holistic view to the admins as to how much funds-- both in currency and in points-- have been utilized.

You can now track the budget utilization report on the basis of the department. This comes in handy for HR to ensure that the points are being distributed equitably throughout the departments.

2. Improve Participation in Engagement Programs

Earlier, it wasn’t a possibility for admins and program managers to identify inactive users who are yet to log in to the platform.  The program managers can now identify employees who aren’t active on the Empuls platform and remind them to sign in to the platform by sending out invites. The user-status can be checked in the Account Administration > User Management. The user list has a status filter that classifies the users who have enabled, disabled, or have been invited.

The users that are yet to sign up have the Invited status, and the admin can resend the invites for them to sign up. This helps in identifying dormant users who are yet to take the initiating steps to get on the platform.

3. Micro-target Survey Participants with Ease

Surveys in the employee lifecycle don’t bring out the right results when the target audience isn’t right.  With the new Employee Lifecycle Survey filters, gather responses from the right set of people on the basis of departments, locations, business units, designation, and grades. Filter out users with the help of employees’ metadata and create custom surveys/use existing surveys to roll them out.

With the new filter, you can conduct a survey without the cumbersome process of manually entering email IDs of designated people. The users that are already part of a survey can be seen down in the list of previously invited users. 

With the “Set Reminder” button, you can send out a message to users who are yet to respond to the given survey with an optional note.

4. Duplicate Existing Surveys with the Click of a Button

Do you wish to A/B test your surveys to compare different variants or target different audiences with the same set of questions, with minor changes? Want to use that old survey template but collect data afresh? Whatever be your use case, it is all now possible through a one-click method for cloning surveys.

This feature helps in split-testing respondents with identical surveys; the difference being the survey’s crux of the respondent pool in question.

5. Encourage Candid Feedback to uncover any risks

Anonymous surveys are everywhere, but how to discover insights from anonymous opinions while maintaining the respondents’ identities. Employee life-cycle surveys bring substantial pieces of information about the organization inside and out. With the Response Summary section, peep into what employees have to say for each and every question and analyze their responses by department, designation, grade, roles, and location. Not only does this bring out insights as per the given filter, but it maintains the privacy of every employee.

The collected responses can be filtered in case of anonymous surveys too and the employees’ anonymity stays intact while doing so. This helps in gathering sensitive opinions that stay safe while the organization can draw out meaningful conclusions.

To guard the secrecy of data in case of anonymous surveys, the data won’t be showcased in the Response Summary section until there are at least three responses for the given question. This airtight mechanism ensures that the employees’ opinion stays safe and stays true.
