Recently I was listening to a CEO give a talk and he mentioned how listening to employee feedback was one the most important things he does every other week. Naturally, this got me thinking about the many different ways leaders solicit feedback and ideas.
Here are seven ideas for employee feedback:
- Facilitate bottom-up daily check-ins across the company
- Use a UserVoice idea exchange and let employees submit ideas and vote up their favorites
- Hold a weekly town hall where any employee can ask questions or provide feedback
- Run an anonymous quarterly employee survey using Survey Monkey asking for feedback and capturing an employee net promoter score (NPS) (note: some people think anonymous surveys are bad because it is a crutch for cultures that aren’t healthy enough to share things out in the open while others find it to be very valuable)
Employee feedback is a critical part of healthy organizations. Try these four ideas and find out what does, and doesn’t, work for your organization.
What else? What are some more ideas for employee feedback?
