Employee Engagement

What is Employee Engagement?

An employee’s level of engagement represents their emotional and psychological commitment to their organization. Fully engaged employees are emotionally and rationally attached to their organizations and are eager to go above and beyond to help their companies thrive.

Building an organization that embraces engagement is not about making employees happy; it is about increasing productivity and profitability, decreasing turnover and absenteeism, and removing barriers that are affecting performance.

Employee Engagement Programs

Activate Human Capital Group is passionate about measurement with a purpose; our engagement initiatives measure what matters within your organization so that we can identify specific, data-driven actions that will drive employee engagement and positively impact the bottom line. While engagement initiatives typically start with a company-wide employee engagement survey, our research has shown that communicating and taking action on the results are the most impactful elements of any survey-related effort. We actively promote post survey activities and education that ensure accountability and serve to build highly engaged, high performing work teams.

Employee Engagement Surveys

Activate Human Capital Group's Employee Commitment IndexTM measures 22 items that are scientifically validated to drive engagement and business performance. Our 10-minute survey is available in 32 languages and results are compiled into an easy-to-read scorecard available for download on our easy-to-use engagement portal (see Not All Employee Engagement Surveys are Created Equal).

TXB / Kwik Chek : Had we not engaged Activate....

Kwik Chek Stores and their rapidly growing TXB (Texas Born) family of customer-oriented convenience/grocery stores & quick food operations have locations across Texas and Oklahoma. Set to double in store-count over the next 5 years, the leadership teams at TXB and Kwik Chek came together to discuss an important truism: “What got us here won’t get us there”. With Melissa Ortiz and Activate by their side, the organization set its sights on improving retention and productivity by addressing two mission-critical undertakings:

  • Employee Engagement efforts at the store level and corporate office
  • The integration of Predictive Index’s talent-based hiring assessments

The goal of addressing levels of turnover that were costing the company millions of dollars per year in recruiting, onboarding, and training is also intended to improve the customer relationships that the company prides itself on. Here’s what Rick Fitzgerald, Vice President of Operations had to say about working with Activate.

She has the ability to relate to many audience types which is particularly relevant for human capital engagement.

    ---- Kevin Spafford, Wealth Manager serving farming professionals and family business owners
  • Employee Engagement - we were a small mid-stream natural gas compression company and needed the expertise of the Gallup Organization but not the heavy duty price tag. And that is where Melissa and Evolve Performance Group came to the rescue with a reasonably sized set of predictive questions to help us understand where engagement was strong and where it wasn't. And, more importantly, what to do about the hot spots. She was our go-to expert on the topic that was foreign to most of our management team. We ended up as one of the winners of the Houston "Best Place to Work" competition for mid-size employers.

    ---- Jeff Gill, Senior HR Leader, Sasol (Petrochemicals)
  • Melissa does fantastic work! She helped my former company conduct their very first employee engagement survey. She was very hands-on in the process ensuring that her team fully understood what our company was looking for, and how we could best capture the data we were seeking. Once our survey closed and the data was compiled, Melissa and her team did an excellent job preparing a debrief for our group, helping us understand the results, what they meant, and what our next actions should be as a group. I would highly recommend her and her team!

    ---- Sarah Cooper Truchard, Manager of Training and Development at PV Fluid Products
  • We have used Melissa, her team and her talents over the years with tremendous success and help to our organization. She brings an energy and expertise to any situation. I credit her with significantly bringing together our team and strengthening our path as we move forward.

    ---- Richard Lester, Clinical Professor at Texas A&M University
  • While working with our MBA class to understand the StrengthFinder framework, Melissa stood out from other facilitators because she's always looking for practical solutions that address business needs AND fully leverage the individual's strengths. Its this rare combo of understanding how culture drives growth and why that's important merged with an emphasis on the individual's engagement that allows her to drive results with any group she works with.

    ---- Janette Barnard, Commodity Markets + Tech
  • Every once in a blue moon, you are blessed to encounter someone that changes your life in a powerful and positive way. The passion and expertise with which she presents powerful strengths discovery, optimization and application sessions is literally nothing short of life-changing. The deft skill, poise, and savvy combined with her otherworldly emotional intelligence also makes her a uniquely superb CEO. Anyone fortunate enough to be pulled into her orbit as either a client, student or business partner will see that changing lives is exactly what she does on a daily basis.

    ---- Erik "Skip" Moratzka, Global Account Director at Lionbridge
  • Melissa helped us with Customer Engagement a couple years ago. The data was extremely insightful and Melissa was a joy to work with. We integrated the findings into our quarterly conversations with clients and have continued to benefit from the prioritization of internal efforts the results recommended. We'll be starting this work again in the next few weeks.
