We’ve likely all seen or taken anonymous employee engagement surveys designed by upper management to gauge how employees feel about their workplace experiences. It’s unfortunate that, far too often, these surveys are emailed out, the employees dutifully take them, the results are tallied and then… crickets. It’s an enormous missed opportunity to take the metaphorical temperature of teams to find out their opinions about the business and its leadership, as well as discover what drives them to help the business succeed. After all, if you want to know how you’re doing, ask your employees! And then act on what they tell you.
