25% of Americans view their jobs as the number one stressor in their life
So it’s no surprise that a mere 30% of employees feel engaged at work. But, go ahead and breath easy because there’s a solution: employee feedback. This valuable tool has the power to flip workplaces upside down (in a good way) and create an engaging environment.
Most employees are hesitant about letting their thoughts loose. Comfort them by using anonymous surveys that keep their identity hidden. That way, they won’t fear negative retribution for their feedback.
Helps Improve Culture
The biggest impact of surveys for any organization is that feedback has the power to improve the work environment. Are employees not feeling valued? Maybe they’re unsatisfied with the way their managers communicate with them. All of these concerns may never be unearthed if employees aren’t offered the chance to provide their feedback.
Because issues are never-ending, ask for feedback and ask again. Never close the communication channel, because doing so will only hurt your workplace culture.
Work is stressful. So give your employees a safe and easy way to give you feedback about any concerns that arise in the workplace. This helps you gain insight into underlying issues and allows you to create a better environment for your employees.
