More motivated employees thanks to self-directed learning and improvement

With the award-winning employee survey Pulse, you can easily measure motivation and engagement. And thanks to our bottom-up method, promote it actively and concretely throughout the company.

Only engaged employees can move your company forward

Engaged employees are dedicated to the organisation. This manifests itself...

  • in their own work
  • in the cooperation within the team and the company
  • in external actions

The higher the motivation and engagement of employees, the greater their productivity and contribution to the company’s growth and success.

90% of employees in Western Europe are "not engaged" or "actively disengaged"

Gallup's regular surveys paint a bleak picture. Only a fraction of employees are engaged. They take responsibility and are motivated to move the company forward. Unengaged and actively disengaged employees invest time but neither energy nor passion. In the worst case, they even undermine the work of their colleagues.

Pulse is the optimal tool to increase employee motivation and engagement

Simplicity

Make it easy for everyone in the company to do a good job.

Support employees

Enable teams to shape their collaboration and work environment.

Measure scientifically

Continuously measure and promote key motivation and engagement drivers.

With Pulse, you can improve motivation and engagement in real-time

Employees at all levels of the hierarchy can swiftly provide feedback on what motivates them and what gets in the way of their engagement – and immediately identify and remove hurdles they face in their daily work in collaboration with their team.

Thanks to insights from cognitive psychology and intelligent UX design, Pulse makes it easy to give constructive feedback. So easy that it has been proven to promote the feedback culture in the company.

Scientifically sound and fully flexible employee surveys

We explicitly developed Pulse to measure employee motivation and engagement. The tool includes a scientifically developed questionnaire that we created together with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

Our questionnaire maps out the central factors known from the literature that promote or hinder employee engagement and motivation. In addition, it contains questions on other topics such as leadership, transformation or customer centricity. Of course, you can also create your own questions and thus respond flexibly to your situation.

Thanks to our bottom-up approach, everyone contributes

At Pulse, the focus is on the employees. Instead of imposing top-down measures, you can enable teams across the organisation to shape their collaboration and working environment through open feedback.

This is much more likely to succeed because teams know best what they need to do a good job. At the same time, you take the pressure off management and HR - and yourself.

Swisscom keeps its finger on the pulse of employees with measurements of local and global engagement drivers

For many years, Swisscom has been using a comprehensive traditional employee survey to measure engagement. However, this only took place every two years and couldn’t keep up with the rapid changes within the company. Worse still, the surveys rarely led to noticeable improvements. Yet this was precisely the goal. Dissatisfaction with the previous survey and the lack of a suitable tool on the market led to the development of Pulse. Since 2016, Swisscom has been using Pulse to measure employee engagement as well as other topics.

Pulse creates a space for feedback and dialogue that stimulates the discussion of strengths and the potential for improvement. It gives everyone the opportunity and the responsibility to address and lead topics. This way, employees and teams throughout the company are supported in working together to overcome obstacles. The manager takes on the role of a trainer by discussing the rules for teamwork, designing a learning process and promoting employee’s self-management.

Simultaneously, HR and management always keep their finger on the employees’ pulse, follow the development of the topics dealt with over time, and implement comprehensive measures where necessary. Pulse is an integral part of Swisscom’s work and has produced numerous local and global improvements. And: thanks to Pulse, the feedback culture in the company has been measurably increased.


What makes Pulse revolutionary compared to all the other methods is its transparency. And the very user-friendly evaluation of the results. This allows everyone in the company to take responsibility and work with the results. And that pays off: teams that have consistently worked with Pulse have been able to measurably increase their performance.
