Use These Tools to Track Employee Engagement

VocoliQ: What’s your favorite tool for analyzing employee engagement?

A: TINYpulse. “We’ve been using TINYpulse for nearly two years. It automatically sends an anonymous one-question survey to your employees every week to help you keep a ‘pulse’ on engagement. The questions range from, ‘How happy do you feel at work?’ to ‘What would you do differently if you were CEO?'” Bhavin Parikh, Magoosh Inc

CultureAmp. “I love CultureAmp. The platform provides deep analytics and a great platform to share information about what’s going on in your organization. It offers in-depth engagement scores, sentiment arcs and a predictive heat map analysis. I also love a good process for provoking the dialogue once the data is collected. That delivers the “so what” behind the number.” AJ Thomas, Infuse Entrepreneurship

15Five. “I’ve been using 15Five since beta, and it’s awesome. Every week employees answer a targeted group of questions. You can use pre-existing ones that 15Five has on file, create your own or use a combination. I can tell from the thoughtfulness and quality of the answers how engaged or disengaged any of my employees are at the time. It’s highly recommended.” Andrea Lake,

Vocoli. “By using a platform like Vocoli, you indirectly track employee engagement through the volume and quality of ideas and suggestions submitted. Vocoli powers innovation management, so when employees are actively sharing — and championing — thoughtful ideas that can create change within your company, you can measure how impactful your workforce is on your business’ long-term success.” Danny Wong, Blank Label

Net Promoter Score. “While most often used to measure customer happiness, Net Promoter Score (NPS) can also be an excellent way to take the pulse on employee engagement. Once a quarter we send out a simple NPS survey to our employees through This provides an excellent window into how our teammates are feeling and provides actionable insight on how to improve going forward.” Joel Holland, VideoBlocks

Podio. “Through Podio, you can view activity of each employee, deliverables and projects they were involved in, and much more. We use Podio for time tracking as well, and are able to quickly and easily create reports based on employees to determine productivity and participation. In addition, the social media elements within Podio allow us to track engagement, conversations, comments and more.” Marcela De Vivo, Brilliance

Employee surveys. “We conduct employee surveys twice a year and emphasize that the answers remain anonymous. This elicits honesty from our team and provides great analysis.” Simon Casuto, eLearning Mind

iDoneThis. “I love iDoneThis because it is short and provides impact. It takes the team five minutes to fill it out each day and it sends a digest so everyone can see what others are doing. Since many of our team members are spread across the country and one person is international, it helps create more of an office environment.” Raoul Davis, Ascendant Group

Hppy. “One of the most interesting things that Hppymeasures is employees’ moods. Not only does the app allow you see how your employees are affected by the work they do, but you also have the opportunity to receive anonymous feedback on anything from work environment to the way you celebrate birthdays in the office. This app really opened new avenues of communication for me and my team.” Firas Kittaneh, Amerisleep

Salesforce. “All of my employees use Salesforce for all of their daily activities. It is so easy to track what people are doing on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. It becomes apparent when an employee is distracted and not as engaged when their Salesforce activity is lower than average. Once this happens, I make a point to have a conversation with the employee to find out what’s going on and how I can help.” Jayna Cooke, EVENTup
