Are you Throwing Away Your Employee’s Best Feedback?

Annual Engagement Surveys Gather Plenty of Feedback. How Does that Feedback Become Actionable Insight?

Employees Actionable Feedback
Capturing employee insights is an essential element of moving your organization into the future. Decades ago, this check in process might have included walking around to various employees’ desks to check in. But as companies grew and gradually became more globally connected, the check in process evolved to surveys that were so intensive and costly to prepare that they were only possible to complete once a year.  
The annual engagement survey is a worthy concept, but also one that’s become antiquated with the state of modern organizations and communities. Technology has created connectivity in our workplace, and it has also limited day to day interactions. This leads to an increased need for alignment among humans in the workplace.
These extensive surveys were a response to that need for alignment, but the sheer human effort it takes to get a single survey off the ground is staggering, and expensive. Not to mention the effort on behalf of the employee to reply, and on administrators to respond and transform the data into actionable insights.
For too long, organizations were compelled to hang on to an outdated idea because there was no viable alternative. That’s no longer the case.

Frequently crowdsourcing for feedback is an easier and more effective solution. It offers transparent, actionable insights that more accurately measure and drive engagement than the annual engagement survey.
It also gives you the option to go way further into your organization and access other key areas where feedback is helpful. With guidance, organizations that continuously crowdsource feedback can experience a transformation within their cultures that becomes their ultimate competitive advantage.
