Engage with your staff by asking for your employees’ feedback. By being involved in the company’s internal operations, employees may have great valuable insights that can help your company succeed. Whether dealing with company challenges, or finding ways to improve employee relations, obtaining feedback from your employees can help create a more positive and productive working environment.
Find underlying issues that may fester and create unhealthy working environments. Ensuring your employees are happy at work can yield beneficial results. Through employee engagement surveys, companies gain a better understanding of what areas need to be improved and whether there are any issues that are affecting employees’ work performance.
Show your employees that their opinions and thoughts count. Requesting employees to provide their opinions on work-related issues can foster a healthy working environment and create a sense of teamwork. Let your employees know that their feedback and opinions are valuable and that they should be open to discuss any issues or ideas that can help the overall business.
Engage a third party to ensure that the survey process remains confidential. Reassure your employees by ensuring that their feedback and opinions remain anonymous. You can benefit from an external service provider that can handle this entire process on your behalf, as the third party survey provider handles the survey professionally and maintains the highest level of confidentiality for your employees.
Share the survey results in percentages of favorability; then conduct focus groups to enlist employees to find solutions to real or perceived problems in the workplace. There is no need to conduct a survey, find out the results, and place the survey results in a drawer. Your employees want to know the survey results! ECG can prepare a Powerpoint presentation of your company’s survey results; all in percentages of favorability. But it does not stop there! We follow up on those survey results with facilitating focus groups so that your employees can find solutions to the real or perceived problems. Try to get as many of your employees involved in the solution process, and encourage them to express their views and ideas. By including an employee engagement survey in your budget every year, you can gradually improve your company’s employee morale, teamwork, and overall business objectives.
