Attrition rate and Disengagement due to Organization Climate Addressed through a Structured Employee Engagement Survey

Ma Foi’s structured intervention helped a bank enhance its employee engagement levels and reduce attrition


A leading bank was facing a drop in performance levels due to disengaged employees and a spike in attrition. While the management had taken a few initiatives around its HR policy, the attrition rate did not see any change. Based on a board mandate, the management wanted to understand from employee’s perspective, the real issues that needed to be addressed to stem attrition.

The client engaged Ma Foi to conduct a diagnostic study that would inform them on employees experiences, expectations and importantly prioritize them that will enable focussed initiatives to meet employees expectations. This would help in enhancing employee engagement. Ma Foi developed a framework that involved a discovery phase aimed at understanding employees expectations & experiences through a qualitative research process amongst a representative sample of employees.

Employees responses were analysed through advanced statistical techniques to determine the key drivers of employee engagement. In other words, the prioritized employees expectations.
