What is Action Planning and ACT?

We know that employees want to feel heard, but just listening isn't enough — they expect you to take action. Unfortunately, this can
prove costly and time-consuming when you don't know what to do or where to start. That's where ACT comes in.

Backed by our People Science Methodology, our action planning software analyses data and quickly prioritises the areas to address to make the
biggest impact. By transforming employee feedback into actionable insights, you're able to build a foundation based on trust
— and a culture you can be proud of.

Why is Action Planning Important?

Disengaged employees are not only unhappy, they're less productive. This can have a devastating impact on your culture, customer
experience and bottom line. In fact, Gallup Research shows that disengaged employees exhibit 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity,
and 15% lower profitability and they can cost a company between 18-34% of their annual salary.

ACT gives employers a clear blueprint for implementing change, and employees the confidence to contribute continuous feedback — two vital characteristics of a safe, positive and productive company and culture.

How does ACT work?

the three most likely to have a positive and negative impact on engagement. People Managers can log into their own
dashboard to view these focus areas and leverage our ‘Best practice’ library to create their custom Action Plans.
