How to Use Yammer to Measure Employee Morale and Sentiment

Employee morale is extremely important for productivity, retention, and recruiting. Most disengaged employees tend to be the ones with the lowest morale, and it's costing businesses billions of dollars. A report from Gallup stated that 70 percent of employees are disengaged, and it costs the U.S. $450 - $550 billion per year. But here's the kicker: companies with engaged employees (which tend to be happier) could earn up to 22 percent more than their competitors.

Measuring sentiment presents an extremely complex task. For administrators, it's impossible to extract every message and score sentiment and emotion. It could take weeks or even months to aggregate the scores and gain insights into your organization.

Luckily, there are text and sentiment software solutions that make this task much more manageable. With technology solutions, the thousands of messages generated on Yammer every day can be easily analyzed. After effectively driving adoption and engagement, Yammer can serve as a proxy for you to gauge employee morale and sentiment.

With analytical tools like GoodData Yammer Analytics, Human Resources and Corporate Communications can monitor sentiment daily. This allows you to identify and address issues before they affect the overall organization or to measure the effectiveness of employee morale programs.
