Employee engagement is more than a survey.
Although surveys are the start of collecting the data you need to propel your company forward, it takes a conscious effort on part of your executive-level employees to actually leverage this information. You’ll need to consider what employee metrics and data mean, and how you can transform them into strategies to build better employee engagement and a better company. Furthermore, how do you use employee engagement data to find the “right fit” for future hires?
At Denver Startup Week, Colorado leaders across different industries have shared great use cases to accomplish the same goal: right fit hires and a more engaged workforce. VP Legacies contributed insight about devoting resources to forging authentic personal connections across levels and departments.

Denver Startup Week is all about sharing new ideas and creating personal connections with the people involved in Denver tech companies and Denver startups. Both Jobber Group and VP Legacies were heavily involved in the week between attending events and hosting various events.
Jobber Group specifically put together a panel made up of innovative executives working in their own Denver startups to engage and create personal connection with their employees to close the week on a high note. On September 29, 2017 Jobber Group invited VP Legacies (us) to the Denver Startup Week Employee Engagement Panel called “I’m Measuring Employee Engagement…Now What?” to capture the responses from these talented executives.

What Is a Company’s Greatest Asset?
Our biggest takeaway from the Denver Startup Week Employee Engagement Panel: “I’m Measuring Employee Engagement…Now What?” is that no matter what kind of organization you own, manage or work for, people are the most important asset. Therefore, they should be treated as such with personal connection being at the forefront.
Data tells only half of the story, and it’s up to you to decide what happens next. Therefore, use the data to connect with your peers and create employee engagement. Use insight to further develop your employee branding strategy to attract and retain talent. At VP Legacies, we’ll help you use data to identify challenges, then deploy a strategy to address these issues while building on your successes.
