In today’s Corporate America, it can be tricky for companies to connect to their employees on a meaningful level. This lack of connection with employees can lead to employees not feeling a sense of personable investment from their employers. Often times, this lack of interest that employees feel from companies can lead to decreased employee loyalty and increased employee turnover. As leaders in the Human Resource Management field, it is your responsibility to not only move in the best interest of the company but also, its employees. knoME is a software designed to help businesses retain early career professionals.

It can be difficult for companies to stay innovative and on track with market fluctuation and disruption in their industries. When an employee chooses to separate from the business the cost to the company comes in various forms; onboarding cost, hiring cost, training cost, off-boarding cost, and loss of productivity. According to the Work Institute’s National Employee Retention Report, “Each lost employee conservatively cost a company on average 33% of the employee’s base pay.”(Manhan, Nelms, & Bearden, 2019).

knoME helps companies build meaningful relationships with their employees by implementing an insightful employee engagement solution that (1) continuously promotes career growth & visibility and (2) employs science-based tools that teams can use to understand how to communicate more effectively. Alongside a powerful proprietary software platform, knoME empowers clients through continuous, enterprise-level support and enthusiastic, and hands on collaboration.

At knoME, we take pride in operating with integrity to give honest, transparent, factual analysis and operational advisement to our partners with the understanding of the industry on a global level. A reality that companies are commonly facing is that early career professionals are leaving companies within three years of being hired at that company. Every time that an employee leaves a company, the company loses time, productivity, knowledge, and money. We want to help the company and its employees operate at optimal levels to achieve and maintain success. According to our customer interviews, three out of four millennials do not expect to be with the same company in two years citing career growth and impact as the factors causing them to look elsewhere.

We use our technology to analyze the satisfaction that an employee feels about their place of employment and what ways they can feel valued. The employee will create a knoME Performance Persona that will assist in generating a knoME Professional Profile which will lead to a knoME career path that will best suit the employee.

The knoME approach to learning about the talent that you serve at your company is threefold. We explore the Professional Persona, Career Path, and Performance Profile of each of your employees. This approach helps you get a well-rounded understanding of the employees and management to promote optimal communication and understanding.

It is vitally important for employees and managers to be well-rounded in a company. With a well-rounded employee, companies not only increase their employee satisfaction but also have a deeper wealth of knowledge within each employee that can serve as an asset to the company. A well-rounded employee is able to be professionally equipped to handle different situations encountered on the job.

Professional Persona

The professional persona is stage one in the knoME process. While establishing the professional persona of an employee, we learn their personality style in a fashion similar to Myers Briggs. The categories of personas that an individual can be classified in include: Kommanding, Openness, Enduring, and Mindful. There is an added measurement of Neuro-sensitivity levels to evaluate how an individual processes stressful situations. Learning the ways an employee navigates through difficult situations is a valuable asset to a company as it allows for them to understand how to cultivate a good working environment.

The open communication allows everyone to understand the ways in which each of their team members give and receive information. This grants the employee and management the opportunity to communicate more effectively.

Career Path

Stage two of the knoME process is the assessment of where an employee currently is in your career path versus where they want to be in their career at your company. Through the establishment of a career path, employees and management are able to get a realistic estimation of the time management, and professional experience needed to reach the professional aspirations of the employee.

The career aspirations of the employee are shared with current management in order for management to understand how to effectively support their employees. They can assist their employees with movement in the company that is beneficial to both the development of the employee and company.

Performance Profile

The Performance profile serves as the key tool for both the employee and management to understand how their work impacts the business. There is a tracking of the professional progression towards the tasks associated with their position to increase efficiency and productivity of the company.

The performance profile gives accountability to management and employees alike. It gives management the opportunity to have an accurate view of the activities of their employees. This added visibility can assist managers in providing the needed support to continue to uplift their staff.

knoME’s main focus is to help the employee and company navigate as partners in the professional world. At knoME, we want to make sure that every employee feels heard and valued. We work hard to ensure that everyone gives their full effort in making their experiences meaningful. A valued employee is a loyal employee. A company that takes pride in its employees will always be successful.
