The United Service Organizations (USO) and Ernst & Young LLP (EY) are joining forces to support professional development within the military community. During a three-year strategic relationship, the USO and EY will create career and mentorship opportunities for service members and their spouses.

"The USO and EY share a commitment to helping others become the best versions of themselves. This relationship will allow thousands of our brave troops and their spouses to plan rewarding professional lives that leverage their unique skillsets, EY representatives already sit on six USO advisory boards throughout the United States, and we are looking forward to even more cross-organization engagement in the future."

- USO CEO and President J.D. Crouch II.

A $1.5M donation and pro bono services from EY will support numerous USO initiatives between Jan. 2022 and Dec. 2024.

EY employees will have a chance to meaningfully engage with service members through mentorship, board positions, and storytelling. Each interaction will help bridge the military-civilian divide and give more than thanks to those in uniform.

Cooleaf Launches New Survey Tool to Measure eNPS (Employee Net Promoter Score)

Cooleaf | July 14, 2022

With Cooleaf's pulse survey tool, customers will now be able to easily schedule and deploy eNPS surveys to measure employee loyalty and collect actionable insights. What is eNPS? NPS, or Net Promoter Score, is a key metric to measure brand experience. NPS measures the likelihood of employees, customers, or to recommend your business to others with a one-question survey. For the employee experience, Employee Net Promoter Score, or eNPS, is measured by asking, "How likely is it that you would recommend our company to a friend or colleague?" Survey respondents are sorted into Promoters, Detractors, or Passives based on their answer, and eNPS is calculated by subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters. The shortness and simplicity of the eNPS survey makes it ideal for setting goals around employee engagement. "Employee Net Promoter Score is the quick and standard way to track employee loyalty and satisfaction within an organization, Now that the eNPS survey is built into the Cooleaf platform, we can help our customers deploy the survey on a regular basis and benchmark results over time. Organization leaders and HR teams can filter that data by team or department, and use it to drive their engagement strategy. When you combine that data with the engagement initiatives and tactics that Cooleaf provides, eNPS becomes a very powerful tool for improving company culture." -Jess White, Senior Director of Customer Success How it works HR leaders can access the eNPS survey tool within Cooleaf's Manager Dashboard.
