Culture makes companies stand out; that’s why we’re passionate about it here at Sprout. After all, company culture reflects its employees’ commitment to their jobs.
But some organizations can’t tell whether their culture is a good fit for them and if their efforts are translating into employee engagement. So, what can you do to figure out if your company events and team-building activities are actually helpful?
We’ve found that employee surveys are an excellent, proactive way to get honest feedback from your employees and figure out what’s working and what’s not.
These tools are all about giving employees a voice. In turn, you can determine areas of improvement to help you make more informed decisions. Sprout Pulse is one tool that uses expert-created surveys to help you keep employees engaged.
Sprout Pulse: Committed to Better Employee Engagement
The rise of hybrid work has allowed us to maximize Sprout as a platform by developing helpful tools for HR professionals. These tools make up the Sprout Ecosystem, our cloud-based, end-to-end HR platform.
The issues we brought up about measuring employee engagement paved the way for Pulse, the first tool we created outside our main HR platform and an integral part of the Ecosystem.
Through anonymous employee surveys, Pulse gives team members a voice and an opportunity for your HR team to understand employees on a deeper level.
This data can shed light on issues such as a lack of communication or career growth opportunities. Armed with this information, you’re on track to crafting better strategies to keep employees happy.
What’s New with Pulse?
Since we launched Pulse, we’ve been improving its capabilities and features to align with the growing needs of our customers.
Here’s a quick look at some changes we’ve made to our survey tool.
- We now offer more flexible billing options for our pricing plans.
- We’ve also made custom surveys available to customers on our premium tier.
Along with templated surveys, you can create custom surveys using Pulse. They’re a great way to measure more specific areas of engagement.
Our team can help assess your business goals and create a customized survey or feedback loop plan around these action items. This way, your metrics reflect the scope you’ve defined.
Updated Question Libraries
Pulse allows you to choose survey questions about critical aspects of employee engagement. But we wanted to go beyond broad evaluations and offer more actionable insights to help you roll out effective engagement initiatives. Hence, we’ve updated our question libraries based on our HR Digital Maturity Model.
We’ll identify key performance indicators, or KPIs, linked to your company goals and check whether they align with our survey questions and topics. If they’re relevant to your KPIs and business goals, it’ll translate to more accurate engagement scores.
More importantly, we’ve ensured that survey questions cover all stages of the employee life cycle. By taking these steps, we can present you with more quantifiable insights.

After collecting survey responses, Pulse feeds the data into a personalized dashboard, so you get a clear snapshot of employee engagement across your company. To make analyzing insights much easier, we’ve added the following features:
- Engagement and respondents by rate - This new filter lets you see trends over time.
- Mood tracker - Besides common employee engagement metrics, Pulse can measure moods. We’ve made this available on mobile to reduce clutter on dashboards and improve its analytics.
