Feets Sdn Bhd Malaysia’s first employee engagement app Feet’s, aims to boost employee engagement and equip employers with behavioral data to improve decision-making.
Feets SB, a member of Ramssol Group, HR Tech company in the ASEAN region, launched its new app, Feet’s, for iOS and Android mobile devices.
The app serves as an employee engagement tool and furthers the company’s mission in helping organisations build value by tracking and forecasting future workforce needs.
According to Aon’s latest 2018 Trends in Global Employee Report, employees in Singapore and Malaysia are the least engaged in Asia.
This reflects poorly on the country’s ability to provide satisfactory ‘reward and recognition, strong ‘senior leadership’ and ‘career opportunities’, which tops the list of engagement drivers in the report.
Looking at current stats, Ramssol Group collaborated with University Malaya (UM) on the R&D to develop the mobile app.
Based on the research conducted by Aon, the findings are – on average, less than 33% of employees in an organisation are fully engaged, lower employee engagement leads to lower productivity and a higher risk of loss.
The mobile app is designed for decision makers to know what is really going on with their people on real-time basis – what they have accomplished, what they are currently struggling with and how they feel.
The mobile app keeps employee engagement fun and rewarding and it is touted to be the first of its kind in Malaysia.
As a platform for companies to boost internal engagement, Feet’s is designed with the feel-good factor in mind so that we can nurture great relationships at workplace amongst managers and peers.
Its unique approach is in its simple and friendly workflow, combined with open collaboration, social interaction, crowdsourcing and gamification.
In addition to receiving company news and announcements, the app prioritises rewards and recognition for employees’ contributions and proactive attribute.
This helps with retention especially in this new era of millennial workforce.
“It is no secret that a happy and engaged worker is a more productive and loyal employee. As employees become more mobile, with gig economy taking over, team spirit and loyalty is often lacking and employers are challenged to provide clear value and strategy to position them for growth.
Feet’s is primed to help organisations keep their teams in the loop and nurture a sense of belonging,” says Clement Tan, Chairman and CEO of Ramssol Group.
“The development of the app is informed by valuable insights acquired through our experience and research with clients.
“While we can track productivity and performance with a dynamic software, with Feet’s, HR managers can continuously monitor if an employee is engaged or disengaged and identify appropriate and timely interventions to achieve desired results,” added Tan.
In order to get a pulse on employee’s morale, Feet’s collaborated with the University of Malaysia to incorporate Artificial Intelligence that will formulate insightful feedback questions.
The responses and deep analytics will help managers to initiate more meaningful discussions with their teams, give them a new source of motivation and create a culture of growth.
Feet’s users are given incentive in a form of points in exchange for rewards such as discounts or offers from local brands ranging from F&B to travel and health industries, for Example Best Western Hotel, Timekeeper and MBG Fruits.
Features of Feet’s include:
Friendly user interface that encourages daily interaction
Makan Buddy Meal Group with location technology that delivers push notifications for “suggestions nearby”.
Feeters Forum to spark discussions and collaborations
T’ing! Suggestion Box that allow autonomy of ideas and voting by members
Weekly quizzes backed by research, positive psychology and Artificial Intelligence.
High Fivers Recognition with badges earned by completing tasks and leaderboards that promote individual achievements.
Attractive rewards that are redeemable at a wide selection of brand partners.
Executive Dashboard for real-time tracking by managers on overall employee activity, satisfaction and stress levels.
Feet’s app has gone through rigorous beta testing with diverse users to transform how employers engage with and listen to their employees. The app will run live with selected early adopters.
