Perceptyx Created A Free Employee Listening Survey To Offer Much Needed Insight
Listening to employees and implementing their feedback is, in general, a better business practice. But during these troubling times it's an even greater resource for HR teams. We've talked about the importance of people analytics before, but companies like Perceptyx take people analytics and help companies turn them into action items.
Almost immediately as the COVID-19 crisis began, Perceptyx created a free 16 question employee listening survey to help users better understand the individual feelings and experience of their employees to help them cultivate a better crisis response. According to the Perceptyx website, "[The survey] will include the ability to measure employee perceptions of the response over time and compare to external benchmarks as they become available, and will allow access to real-time insights related to shifts in employee sentiment across their organization. The measures include indicators of confidence in leadership, perceived care of individuals, consistency in how policies are applied, effectiveness of communication efforts, and more." Organizations can then take this information to create a well-rounded and transparent road map.

The PandoLogic Talent Acquisition Fund
In our own efforts to help companies affected by COVID-19, we've established a Talent Acquisition Fund to help cover the cost of a recruitment advertising campaign.
Our own data shows that CPCs and CPAs are skyrocketing for jobs that are in high demand. Healthcare organizations, for example, are paying even more money to have their Registered Nurse or Respiratory Therapist positions advertised on major job boards. We know people need jobs and people need help so this fund was a no-brainer. With a fund of up to $150,000, any organization that is urgently hiring can apply here.
