The world needs employee success

That feeling of being connected to a thriving culture, doing work that matters. Anywhere, anytime, with ease.

The way work happens has shifted, dramatically. More than ever, people want to be enabled to work on their own terms, on things that matter to them, somewhere they belong. That’s what makes them feel successful.

Success boosts productivity and joy

This is what success looks like.

Quotes

When you hear that, success has become part of your culture. A powerful sense of accomplishment and joy emerges across your company. Everyone smiles, wanting to stick around to contribute more!

What blocks success? Stop sign

It’s not fun when you get blocked from making the contributions you want to make—a phenomenon we call hitting the wall of frustration.

You hit this wall whenever you run into confusion on what needs to be done, you can’t find the information you need, or you’re not sure who to ask for help. Roadblocks like these cause people to actively disengage.

Engagement trap and wall of frustration

For years companies have focused on employee engagement (getting people to want to contribute). But that has not got us far—people are more dissatisfied than ever. We call this the engagement trap.

Actually feeling successful takes more than just engagement. You need to actually contribute, frustration free. It’s this engage-enable-celebrate cycle that drives the “flywheel of success”.

“Focusing on engagement alone is like having an engine in your car, but no wheels or gas—you must enable people to make the contributions they want to make.”

Jostle’s an employee success platform. We’ve pushed our technology beyond being ‘a modern intranet’ to intentionally drive engagement, enablement, and celebration across your business.
