Session Summary

The biggest mistake companies make when conducting an employee satisfaction survey is not doing anything to address the results. Nothing stifles engagement like asking employees for their feedback and then not taking appropriate follow-up. If you ask, your employees they will tell you exactly what they want you to do to best serve, appreciate and retain their loyalty. Typically, at least an annual process, soliciting employee input is an intentional form of communicating to strengthen your relationship and develop future strategies for improving your workplace culture and growing your business. The first step is to determine the strategy for obtaining the most effective feedback to improve your employees' satisfaction and promote engagement.

Session Takeaways

What if your employees told you exactly what they want you to do to appreciate, communicate, motivate, and maximize their talent? They actually would if you asked them. By using a Culture Index Survey Process, learn how a company can:

• Recognize and overcome the fear of giving and receiving feedback

• Assess the health and well-being of the culture and its employees

• Utilize an engaging process to build trust and strategies for success
