We have been utilizing surveys to launch pulse, onboarding, engagement, and general one off surveys. It has been very beneficial in providing data and insight for us to build initiatives on. We have been able to implement a number of new benefits, policies, and rewards that our people actually value, enjoy, and interact with. We also have and utilize Community but I definitely feel as if it has been lacking at this time and am not sure if it's a Paylocity shortcoming or we are not utilizing it fully.

We have not been using these tools. Employees all have online access to their profiles and pay stubs, which they like. This has taken pressure off of our department to print reports for employees on demand because they can access everything they need themselves. We are hoping to look into some of these additional resources for our upcoming season.
