Create internal comms

Create Internal Communications with Ease

With VRAMP’s highly intuitive editor you can create visually appealing communications that your employees receive straight in the palm of their hand. With the VRAMP app on their mobile device, your employees have a direct route to the communications that matter to them. No matter where they are: in the office, in a field or at a service station! As long as they have a mobile device and signal, they can stay connected. 

Sounds amazing, right? Well, it is, and we’ve only just scraped the surface.  

VRAMP provides your employees with their own personalised social media-style channel. You create communications and through the segmentation options, you only send those communications to the employees it is relevant for. By only sharing information that is of interest and useful to each individual you will naturally increase engagement. Should you choose, your employees can also like and comment on your communications which will further encourage engagement.  For any urgent messages you can also send push notifications to alert them of its importance.  

The messages you create can take on many forms – whether text, images, forms or videos. Everything is hosted in VRAMP so there is no need to click on links to watch videos for example. It all happens straight from the VRAMP app.  

For those employees who prefer receiving information via email we cater for their needs too. VRAMP’s multichannel approach allows you to create a message once and then choose your distribution channels at a click of a button. 

The knowledge share that can be achieved with VRAMP goes beyond the personalised feeds you push information to. You can also save files, such as employee handbooks and health and safety documents, in a central location for all your employees to access at any time.  

But perhaps the best bit about VRAMP is that you can share the load. Sending communications doesn’t have to sit entirely with you! You can have multiple authors who each contribute content from wherever they are. They don’t need to use a desktop and the user-friendly functionality makes it very easy even if they don’t use VRAMP regularly.  

Meanwhile, everything you send is automatically monitored. VRAMP provides insightful analytical data so you can see what resonates best, what your employee engagement levels are and how you can improve your internal communication and employee engagement processes.

How we measure Employee Engagement Score

21st December, 2021.

How VRAMP Measures Your Employee Engagement Score

Measuring success is a massive part of every business. At VRAMP we believe the same analytical focus should also be put on employee engagement. After all, as this infographic shows, employee engagement plays a huge role in employee productivity, profitability and even work-based accidents. By measuring employee engagement it is possible to make improvements, which in turn contribute to business success. 

What is an employee engagement score?

Put simply, an employee engagement score is the measure of an individual’s commitment to their organisation.

 

How do you keep track of your employee engagement score

There are several different ways to measure employee engagement and many organisations opt to use multiple measures that complement one another. Our employee engagement guide talks you through each of the different methods to measure employee engagement but for the purpose of this blog, we are going to focus on the easiest route – through the use of an employee engagement platform. 

Why is this the easiest route I hear you ask! Because employee engagement software such as VRAMP does everything for you!

Through the platform’s algorithms, VRAMP attains data on various aspects and presents the findings in a dashboard. The points from which VRAMP draws this information include, opens, views, and clicks. It’s this combination of data points that make the VRAMP employee engagement score so useful. You know that you have a reliable overview of all your tactics rather than having to compare and analyse multiple measures.

Aside from the all-encompassing nature of VRAMP’s employee engagement score and the fact you don’t have to do anything to see this score, there are other perks:

  • VRAMP provides a real-time employee engagement score – you can login and see your score at any given time.
  • VRAMP provides an engagement score at multiple levels – from the overall score of the organisation to individual teams. This ability to look at more granular detail not only helps those responsible for employee engagement but also line managers and HR.
  • The VRAMP employee engagement score includes survey participation rates because employee surveys are included in VRAMP. You can send an employee survey whenever you want to and the success of that survey will be included in your overall employee engagement score. This connection between all of your employee engagement efforts makes the VRAMP employee engagement score an extremely accurate way of measuring employee engagement.
  • You can set benchmarks to work towards and VRAMP will keep tabs of your progress as you work towards this benchmark.

What is a good employee engagement score?

VRAMP measures your employee engagement from 0-10. As a general rule of thumb, we consider anything above 6 to be good and above 8 to be excellent. But, this comes with a huge caveat. 

Our classification of ‘good’ and ‘excellent’ is based on a company that has an established employee engagement strategy. If you have only just started your employee engagement journey and began at a score of 1, to reach a score of 5 would be considered brilliant. 

So while we are asked all the time what a good score is, our advice is to never compare yourself against other organisations. Instead, look at your employee engagement score as your own journey. As long as you are seeing improvement, it is good. If you are seeing a lot of improvement it is excellent!

VRAMP Analytics

Analytics in the context of internal comms and employee engagement is a game-changer. 48% of UK businesses don’t measure the effectiveness of their internal communications. That’s half of businesses who have no idea if their internal comms are achieving anything.

For those that do measure the performance of their internal communications they have complete visibility. They can see which departments in the organisation are most engaged and which aren’t, and they can see which content resonates the most. This level of insight enables them to make continual improvements to their approach so that engagement continues to increase. 

With analytics under your belts, you have the opportunity to use employee engagement as a real driving force to improve business output.

Analytics also brings more efficient ways of working within internal comms teams. With greater insight the team can hone in and focus on specific areas where improvements have been identified. Without analytics to identify such opportunities, most internal comms departments will try to cover all bases but only be able to do so with a very light touch. 

Due to the value analytics brings we have invested a lot of time perfecting the analytics functionality within VRAMP. 

How VRAMP analytics works

 For every article that is shared, VRAMP measures how well it has resonated with your employees. There are multiple measures that are all presented in an Overview dashboard. 

Using similar technology, VRAMP also displays results of surveys in an easy to digest way and this sits alongside the content statistics for a complete overview of every type of engagement. 

VRAMP is an all-encompassing employee engagement platform which enables our customers to send news, videos, images, files, forms and surveys. Our analytics features not only measure all of these, but it also measures any responses received from employees. By measuring every aspect of employee engagement VRAMP delivers hugely valuable insights that inform confident decisions. 

The information you will learn

 VRAMP goes beyond the traditional statistics we have all become familiar with through email marketing. Here is what you will be able to keep track of through VRAMP.

Read times

 While you can still see open and click rates through VRAMP you also receive a greater depth of information. Open rates only show you the effectiveness of the logistics that sit behind your communication processes.

Clicks give you a better indication of the value the recipient saw in the article because they are invested enough to click to find out more. But you may not always have something you want your employees to click through to. Read times give you a far more accurate representation of engagement and with VRAMPs algorithms working out the average read time for every article, you’ll know exactly what is resonating and what isn’t. 

Engagement score

 VRAMP provides an overall engagement score week-on-week. Detailed algorithms take different types of engagements into account and assign them a score. When combined, this becomes your engagement score. You can view your engagement score in real-time, week-on-week, or across a chosen data range. This enables you to benchmark and measure your performance very effectively. 

Level of employee interaction

 VRAMP is a two-way communication platform. Rather than just pushing communications out, our customers can also ask for feedback. In addition to surveys, employees can also comment on articles and use the emojis to show what they think of each article. Each of these interactions are measured and the level of variation week on week is displayed on your Overview screen. 

Survey completion rate

 When you send a survey you want to monitor how many employees have responded. VRAMP shows you this as a percentage enabling you to monitor progress, identify any fluctuations and react quickly to any concerns.  

Skills gaps

 Within each employee profile your team will list all relevant skills. Not only does this help colleagues to collaborate, it also helps you keep track of any skills gaps. You can see this at both company and team level with clear sight of the skills that are most prevalent and those that aren’t. The latter enables you to identify risks and address any learning and development requirements.

Top driver

Within VRAMP a Driver is a noteworthy topic. This is set by you so it could range from environmental factors through to team socials. Whatever Drivers you set, you can see which are of most interest at any given time giving you a good understanding of the topics your employees are most interested in. 

Employee Net Promoter Score

 Your Employee Net Promotor Score (eNPS) is a one question survey that measures how your employees feel about working at your organisation. It can be automatically scheduled at set intervals to give you a continuous way of measuring employee engagement.

Every time an eNPS survey is carried out you will see the percentage of employees who have responded and your overall eNPS score. These are displayed over time so that you can quickly and easily see how engaged your employees are.  

For more information on Employee Net Promoter Score check out our guide.

Your most engaged employees

 Engaged employees are very valuable. They can become very effective advocates who help to spread your positive message across the organisation. VRAMP shows you your most engaged employees so that you can engage them and expand your reach with other employees. 

What can be achieved with VRAMP analytics

 VRAMP will open the door for you to reach a new level of insight and engagement. Data is king and that is definitely the case with employee engagement. 

For starters, VRAMP enables our customers to communicate more transparently with employees. They can inform them why they are taking the approach they have and keep employees much more in the loop. This goes a long way to better engagement.

The level of insight also leads to more confident decisions on their own strategies but beyond that, our customers are able to make employee engagement a business KPI that is reported upon just like any traditional business KPI. They also use the data to build a business case for additional resource, tools or system.

Our employee survey platform

26th October 2021

What our employee survey platform offers

Employee surveys are an excellent way of gathering employee feedback and measuring employee engagement. They can enable you to drill down into specific topics giving you an informed outcome to direct future strategies.

With so much value attainable from employee surveys our development team has invested a lot of time ensuring our employee survey tools give you intuitive functionality that collates quality information.

How it works

From a single employee communications platform, you can send internal communications and employee surveys. This combined approach reduces the number of systems you need to use and keeps all of your communications in one place.

Surveys can be sent via the desktop application, email or mobile app enabling you to reach a greater proportion of your employees.

The types of employee surveys you can send

Our employee survey platform provides the tools you need whether you want to send a quick one off poll or a reoccurring staff satisfaction survey. Below is a list of VRAMP’s survey capabilities:

Multiple question survey

Whether an annual employee satisfaction survey or a training and development survey, VRAMP enables you to create your own bespoke surveys with ease. For more in-depth surveys use our conditional logic functionality to move through the surveys smoothly.

With different answer formats available each of your surveys will be neatly presented to your employees making it very easy for them to respond.

Pulse survey

Pulse surveys are a quick way to gauge opinion on a very specific subject. Usually consisting of just one or two questions, pulse surveys generally collate opinions on a regular basis. VRAMP enables you to set up and schedule your pulse surveys with ease. Once set up, all you will need to do is to monitor the responses.

eNPS survey

The employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) measures employee engagement from one question. Simply set up your question, choose the intervals you wish to measure your eNPS and VRAMP does everything else for you.

For more information about the employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) and how to get the most out of an eNPS survey read our eNPS guide.

Getting your employee surveys in front of the right people

Sometimes you may want feedback from everyone but at other times the survey may only relate to a small group of people. Our employee survey platform enables you to choose who receives your survey through our easy to use segmentation options. By honing who you send your surveys to you can ensure you only involve the people the survey is relevant and of interest to. All of which maximises employee engagement!

Analysing the results of employee surveys

Sending the survey is the first step, now it is time to interpret the results and ensure your employee’s feedback doesn’t go to waste. Our employee survey platform does the hard work for you. All of your results are presented in a dashboard showing you the answers to each question together with performance statistics such as how many people have answered the survey, how many have abandoned the survey mid way through and the overall engagement score. You can also compare surveys side by side and export your data for further analysis. This straightforward way of digesting the results makes it far easier to reach conclusions. Furthermore, with your employee surveys directly linked to your internal communications platform, you can communicate the results with ease too.

VRAMP now provides even more flexibility from one employee communication platform

VRAMP has always enabled you to deliver communications that resonate with every single employee. But now, our employee communication platform gives your employees even more choice.

You can still listen to your employees and understand what they want to be updated on and you can still send quality, visually appealing communications. But now you can choose whether to distribute your messages via the mobile app (and desktop version) or via email.

No matter which channel you choose to share your messages, you will still see our highly informative analytics that reveals a complete picture of which communications your employees are most engaged with. So, when you select this alternative communication channel you will still benefit from all of the existing perks of VRAMP.

As a SaaS business, we are constantly developing our product. This feature was developed following user feedback because we believe there is no one better to guide the development of our employee communication platform than our customers.

How VRAMP's email distribution channel will benefit your employees

With this additional communication channel, your employees now have greater choice. Should they wish to keep all their information in their inbox, now they can.

If you’re not sure which channel they would prefer to receive company communications via you can just ask them through a VRAMP employee survey. VRAMP has everything under one roof making it easy for you to interact with your employees and for them to share their preferences and opinions.

How VRAMP's email distribution channel will benefit you

In addition to knowing that you are offering your employees greater flexibility, this new feature will also make your life easier. If you previously sent messages via email AND an alternative communication platform now you will only have to create your message once instead of duplicating and reformatting your work. You simply create your message in VRAMP and select the channels that you want it to be sent through. And that’s it!
At VRAMP we firmly believe in improving the working lives of employees. That includes your working life as well as all the employees you communicate with!

This software development provides yet another weapon in your arsenal to improve employee engagement. If you would like to see more of what VRAMP can offer, sign up for a free demo or contact us with any questions you have.
