CPO at Eckerd Connects Leverages Explorance Blue for Organization-wide Engagement Surveys to Shape People Strategy

Montreal, Quebec – April 26, 2023 – Explorance, the leading provider of People Insight Solutions, is excited to announce its partnership with Eckerd Connects to help shape their people strategy. The Chief People Officer (CPO) at Eckerd has selected Explorance Blue, the People Insight Platform, to meet four main goals in their employee engagement survey strategy

First, the organization needs to understand the driving indicator for retention – a key metric in its people strategy. Understanding the cause of retention will help leaders at Eckerd Connects improve their turnover rates and decrease costs associated with hiring and onboarding new employees. A comprehensive platform, Explorance Blue enables a fully automated survey process, ensuring Eckerd receives deep insights in a timely manner to drive impact.

In addition to retention, Eckerd also aims to discover the key drivers of employee engagement. With Explorance Blue, the organization can easily send out surveys at all levels – managers, employees, or organization-wide – and produce custom reports to meet each unique requirement. By being proactive with their employer engagement strategy at all levels, the leadership team will help enhance morale, feelings of pride, belonging, and respect before it is too late. Through a best-in-class integration, Blue will also enhance Eckerd’s HR systems and streamline its feedback process, making them more efficient.

As an Explorance partnering organization, Eckerd Connects will benefit from Blue’s ease of use, as well as 24/7 global customer support. A team of expert consultants will be their partner throughout the process, making sure that Eckerd’s employee engagement program is trusted and that the right stakeholders are engaged every step of the way. The consulting team also created the Explorance Item Library – a balance of standard survey questions based on best practices and what’s relevant to the executive team to make the surveying process easier. Eckerd can also customize questions in the item library to meet their strategy and branding standards.
