Want to know everything about the Employee Energy Pulse?

On this page you will find everything about the Employee Energy Pulse, what it measures and how you can use it to increase the energy level of your employees.

What is the Employee Energy Pulse? A definition

The Energy Pulse measures how much energy employees get from the work they do. No heavy, annual employee satisfaction survey with many questions, but a short, simple 4-question method that you can use to regularly check the energy level in the organization. The Energy Pulse is intended as the proverbial ‘finger on the pulse’.

Voice of Employee programs

CYS’ Voice of Employee programs are based on the best examples we could find from positive psychology. The 3 main elements in its programs are:

  • Intrinsic motivation
  • Company culture
  • Structural feedback

Within this context, we have developed 3 different programs that can be used as stand-alone programs or run side by side:

  1. Employee Energy Pulse
  2. eXperience Culture Scan
  3. 360° Feedback Manager

Employee Energy Pulse

With a sophisticated Voice of Employee strategy you can not only measure the Voice of Employee, but also take the step towards increasing employee involvement. The Energy Pulse is a simple method to map employee involvement. It is not asked whether employees feel ‘engaged’ or not, because that is a question that is very difficult to answer. Instead, employees are asked how much energy they get from the work they do. Energy is a recognizable and even measurable concept that people will understand. Obviously, if we feel “drained” after a long day of boring work, it’s not a good thing. On the other hand, if we love our job and we are totally ‘energetic’ at the end of the day, this is a great feeling.

Theoretical background

The Employee Energy Pulse is based on positive psychology books such as ‘Flow’ by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and ‘Drive’ by Daniel Pink. They discuss the influence of positive psychology on the work ethics of your employees and the organizational culture. They argue that intrinsic motivation and a healthy company culture are the biggest factors to get into the ‘flow’ and give a ‘drive’ to your employees, which increases employee involvement in your organization.

Employee Energy Pulse score

The Energy Pulse score is the KPI, the result of the Employee Energy Pulse, i.e. the extent to which employees get energy from their work. The Energy Pulse score is an absolute score, not a percentage, ranging from -100 to +100. A high score shows that employees get a lot of energy from their work.

What is a good Employee Energy Pulse score?

With the Employee Energy Pulse it is not just about the measurement itself, it is about whether there is an increasing trend in the score over a certain period compared to the period before. And that you find out why the employees have given a certain score. That says so much more than just a number.

How to increase the energy level of your employees?

The Energy Pulse is a method to easily measure and improve your Voice of Employee. To improve the Energy Pulse, it is important that you measure this continuously so that you know at any time which knobs need to be turned. And not annually afterwards on the basis of an extensive employee engagement survey with many questions that employees usually do not want. That is actually demotivating. Throughout the year, ask what the energy level of your employees is and map out in which department the energy is lowest or highest and find out the cause. Only then will you know exactly which improvements are needed to increase employee engagement.

Employee Energy Pulse software

CYS makes it easy to request the Energy Pulse structurally and automatically in a certain period. To all employees or groups of employees.

Employees are invited to complete the questionnaire via the medium that suits them (e-mail or mobile app, for example). For example, invite employees who are not often behind the computer, such as mechanics or store staff, to answer the questions via a mobile app.
