Building Engagement at Every Stage of the Employee Lifecycle

The employee lifecycle

Leading organizations recognize that the employee experience is a pivotal aspect of your organization’s success. Engaged employees are not just valuable assets; they act as the backbone of a thriving company. Engaged employees are more productive, exhibit higher morale, and make a more significant contribution to overall company performance. In turn, this leads to lower absenteeism and turnover, creating a motivated workforce to promote the company’s goals.

Here at CCI Consulting, we’ve been at the forefront of understanding and advancing employee engagement. Our E3 Engagement Survey™ is a trusted tool for organizations looking to measure and boost engagement levels within their workforce. While other employee engagement surveys offer invaluable insights, the most powerful strategies go beyond assessments. They prioritize engagement throughout each stage of the employee lifecycle.

Unlocking the Employee Lifecycle

To harness the full potential of engagement surveys, one must fully understand the employee lifecycle – the natural progression an employee experiences during their tenure with an organization. It encompasses six distinct stages, each playing a vital role in shaping the employee’s journey:

  1. Attraction: The initial stage, where your organization’s offerings and culture gain the attention of prospective talent.
  2. Recruitment: The process of selecting and interviewing new team members.
  3. Onboarding: Onboarding is the critical phase when new hires transition into their roles and begin to form connections within the organization.
  4. Development: A continuous process of learning, growth, and skills development that empowers employees to achieve their full potential.
  5. Retention: The stage where engaged employees contribute actively to the organization’s objectives and choose to remain within the company, bolstering its continuity.
  6. Separation: Nothing can last forever! The departure phase is inevitable, whether through retirement or other reasons.

These stages form a cycle, with the level of engagement in one phase profoundly impacting the next. For instance, an employee who leaves on positive terms is more likely to refer future candidates, who, in turn, are more likely to remain with the organization and be satisfied in their roles.

In light of this interconnectivity, maintaining consistent engagement throughout the employee lifecycle is critical. A comprehensive approach encompassing both surveys and techniques to improve engagement ensures your organization retains top talent and boosts overall productivity.
