Morphii Delivers 3rd Annual Employee Study for Pizza Franchise
Morphii was deployed in its third annual employee engagement study for one of the largest singly-owned franchises of an American multinational pizza chain. Amid the Great Resignation of 2021, and just prior to launching this study, the “Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that quits rates in the food service industry hit 6.8%, compared to an overall quits rate of 2.9%…. well above the 5% peaks seen in quits in 2006 and 2019, and 4.1% average over the past 20 years.” (Source)
Highlights from this year’s study and year-over-year comparisons indicate:
- Initiatives to curb harassment are paying off. Happiness with these initiatives held steady across employee groups despite some Skepticism. Reports of experiencing/witnessing harassment in the workplace fell by 23% since previously measured in 2019;
- Employee Indifference is on the rise across all employee groups and areas of measurement—a clear reflection of how labor shortages are impacting workforce engagement;
- How employees feel about the way they are valued by the organization mirrors their attitudes about compensation, and provides clear indicators regarding employees’ likelihood to stay on the job.
Since sharing our findings, the organization raised pay for all restaurant employees and we will be conducting a follow-on pulse initiative to measure the impact of added compensation in the weeks to come. Stay tuned for more details and updates!
International Research is IN: Determining Universal Recognition of Core Morphiis
The claim: We have always said that morphiis are agnostic to things like language and location—leaning heavily on the work of research pioneer and psychologist, Paul Ekman. Our initial product validation was largely limited to the U.S., until now, that is….
The research: 1,400+ residents of 4 global regions (North America: 300+ residents of the US and Canada; Latin America: 297 residents of Mexico and Chile; Europe: 300+ residents of Germany, France and the UK; Asia Pacific: 500+ residents of India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand) were given the ability to recognize and identify the correct morphii image for each core emotional construct, at a reasonable and definitive rate, taking into account the intensity of the facial expression at high AND low levels of arousal.
What we found: We are pleased to confirm that our six Core morphiis performed exceptionally well in global markets—indicating that they are capable of capturing these basic emotional constructs despite variations in locale and primary language.Learn more about the research conducted in our blog, “Are Morphiis Universally Understood? New Research Says, ‘YES!’”.
