New Feature: Customize Automated Deployment Schedule on Pulse - The Employee Engagement App


In the world of employee engagement, managers and HR personnel are looking for better ways to understand their employees in order to make critical business decisions that affect the organization. Instead of the annual employee survey that takes 30 or more minutes to complete, organizations are using the Workforce Pulse mobile application to stay connected, keep communications lines open, and allow employees to offer quick feedback while on the go.
A pulse is a micro-survey sent at frequent regular intervals, usually once a week. A pulse helps you keep a real-time tab on employee satisfaction and cultural alignment; you don’t want to wait until year’s end to find out a key department is drifting away from the culture. It is a fast and frequent mobile survey system that offers quick insights into the health of a company, hence, the name ‘Pulse’.
The new scheduled deployment feature on Pulse will allow survey administrators to schedule and automate deployment times to specific groups of employees. This will make scheduling and gathering feedback more efficient, and be able to deliver feedback opportunities when most convenient to the employees. The results will be higher completion rates and better feedback to be used for business decisions.
To schedule a Pulse, you must update the following information in the Workforce Pulse ‘Send’ tab:
  • Frequency: How often do you want the Pulse emailed to you automatically.
  • Time: At what time do you want the Pulse to be deployed.
  • Time Zone: Select the time zone for Pulse deployment.
Click on Save Pulse.

Once this is scheduled, you may access the ‘Sent’ history to view all upcoming and past sent pulses to review open and completion rates.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.
