Smart CEOs know that if they can’t measure, they cannot do what they want to do. While there are a ton of metrics CEOs measure regularly in a company, this particular metric is getting to the CEOs minds these days.
While the job of a CEO is to make the company profitable, many tend to ignore to measure the employee engagement metrics. These metrics are crucial, since retaining talent, and keeping them happy is a huge part of a CEO’s job.
Here are the list of metrics that top CEOs are obsessed about, when it comes to employee engagement:
- Number of 1-1’s people had this quarter
- Overall sentiment of the company - When it comes to their thoughts on the company’s progress and their growth
- Happiest day of the week
- Happiest week of the month
- Happiest month of the year
- Number of people responding to feedback questionnaires
- Number of people who answered anonymously and what was the sentiment of those responses
- How many people participated in the recent Town Hall meeting
- How many people actively asked questions about the company during meetings
- Average employee retention score
- Individual employee stickiness score
- Overall company happiness quotient
Though CEOs are spending time measuring these metrics, some CEOs are migrating to tools like UnderstandBetter, which calculates all of these metrics automatically, in real-time.
