Now you can use Khorus to share and apply strengths and employee engagement data from Gallup.
A while back, we let you know that employees could add their top five strengths from Gallup's Clifton StrengthsFinder to their Khorus profiles.
Well, now we've expanded that integration into a new Department Strengths view, and added in-app support for Gallup's Q12 employee engagement survey.
If you're one of the thousands of organizations that use these Gallup tools, Khorus is an excellent way to make sure that engagement and strengths data stays top of mind—and actually gets applied as people pursue their goals.
Let's take a quick look at how these features work (and why it matters).
Department Strengths in Khorus
As before, any employee who's taken the StrengthsFinder assessment can easily add their top five strengths to their Khorus profile, choosing from a list of Gallup's 34 strengths, from Achiever to Woo.
Strengths are visible to everyone in the organization, alongside contact information, role details, and goals for the quarter. Click on any strength to read a short description or watch a brief video from Gallup on that strength.
Now, with Department Strengths, you can easily look at strengths across entire teams. Go to the Department Page for any team to see the combined talent profiles of individuals on that team, organized and color-coded by the four strength domains: Executing, Influencing, Relationship Building, and Strategic Thinking.
You can click "Explore Results" to view a table of all the strengths on each team:
Strengths data in Khorus is invaluable to managers, allowing them to analyze team dynamics and understand where the team can be expected to excel and where it might need additional support. For example, if very few members have strengths in the Executing domain, you can expect that follow-through may be a challenge—and manage or build the team to account for this reality.
Plus, managers can use data about the employees' strengths to drive the collaborative goal-setting process, give strengths-based feedback and coaching, and, ensure the right people are in the right roles.
The results of a strengths focus in the organization are immense. Gallup, for example, finds that employees who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged, and that when managers help their teams recognize and act on strengths, the team has 12.5% greater productivity.
Q12 Employee Engagement Surveys in Khorus
In our second Gallup-related feature this month, users can now upload Q12 survey results right into Khorus to easily share and track company engagement levels over time. Once your results are uploaded, they appear on the Company Page and are accessible to all:
Each set of results shows:
- score—your organization’s overall score for each of the twelve questions, broken out in the major categories of Basic Needs, Management Support, Teamwork, and Growth.
- change—whether that score has increased, decreased, or remained the same from the previous set of results.
- percentile—your organization’s percentile for each question, revealing where you stand in comparison to other organizations.
You can also easily page through results from earlier time periods, giving you insight into how engagement levels are evolving over time.
By knowing exactly where engagement stands and which of the twelve questions you need to focus on most closely, you get a chance to hone your competitive edge: according to Gallup itself, only about one third of US workers are engaged.
