1. Introduction

Team Pulse utilizes a series of thought-provoking questions to help managers and leaders to gather real-time feedback and gain a better understanding of their employees. A recurring set of questions is sent to the employees on a set frequency to uncover insights, and the root causes of issues, allowing them to guide better, and make informed decisions.

2. Why Team Pulse?

Today’s workplace is ever-changing, and organizations need to stay in tune with their employees. That is why a listening tool becomes essential for an organization to receive real-time responses from their teams, identify any obstacles preventing progress, and take immediate actions.

3. Who is the module intended for?

Engagedly's Team Pulse is intended for organizations and businesses of various sizes and industries. It is designed to help managers and leaders gain valuable insights into employee engagement and sentiment within their teams. It can be used by HR professionals, managers, team leaders, and other stakeholders who are responsible for fostering a positive work environment and take data-driven decisions to enhance employee morale and productivity.

4. How does it complement the e10 Survey?

Engagedly's e10 Survey is a science-based questionnaire that helps organizations collect anonymous responses from their employees in a secure and unbiased manner. While Engagedly’s e10 allows organizations to measure employee engagement and identify areas of improvement, Team Pulse allows administrators to measure real-time impact of ongoing engagement initiatives. Team Pulse can also serve as a tool to conduct other surveys like eNPS.

5. What can Team Pulse measure?

Admins can tailor Team Pulse as per their organization's priorities and goals. Team Pulse is a feedback method that does not focus on specific content but rather targets specific topics or issues. They provide organizations with quick insights into their employees that help in decision-making and improve employee engagement.

Note: It is advisable to have consistency over a set period to track the responses over time and see how it changes from one month or quarter to the next.
