This IDC Perspective discusses continuous employee engagement platforms to ensure rapid and enduring culture pivots for digital transformation. With 65% of employees described as not engaged, according to a 2020 Gallup poll, lacking a continuous employee engagement platform is critical tool for improving employee engagement and digital transformation success. According to IDC's Shawn Fitzgerald, research director, Worldwide Digital Transformation Strategies, "80% of digital transformation projects fail to meet their intended goals and outcomes with varying levels of success or outright failure. The overwhelming majority of these failures trace directly back to people as a root cause. While there are a number of platforms available, Globant's StarMeUp is a great example of one that the company both uses itself and offers to other companies. In Globant's own situation, the platform helps foster a positive culture and ensures daily employee engagement where it is used to assign goals and assess performance, all while providing regular ongoing feedback. We know engaged staff results in greater retention, reducing turnover costs, at a time when talent is in short supply; positively improving transformation project successes; and vastly increasing digital investment business outcome efficacy with greater efficiency."
