Higher Education—Employee Insight to Work-Life Alignment

A survey conducted by Inside Higher Ed found that 52 percent of faculty members were not engaged in their work.* With Oracle Modern Best Practice, you can create a powerful employee experience that fosters a dynamic culture. Leverage mobile, social, analytics, the Internet of Things, big data, and the cloud to develop a program that reflects your institution’s values and enhances employee loyalty and productivity. The result? Lower faculty turnover and improved student satisfaction. Design outreach initiatives that align with state-regulated campaigns or institution mission, such as study abroad programs. Use game mechanics and social contests to increase motivation and reach wellness goals. Gain insight into staff influence inside and outside your institution and use that data to bolster talent management practices, such as talent profile updating and career development planning.
