Closing the feedback loop 🔂
Happy Monday folks! This is Mariam Mushtaq from HR Brain Pickings, bringing you this week’s first edition of EngageWith weekly. 👋
Quick reminder to beat the Monday blues: (If you are based in India) long weekend is coming up! Hope that’s motivation to get stuff done today. 🌞
Today’s focus is on the importance of fostering a culture of feedback. To be more specific, we're not just talking about feedback; we're talking about closing the feedback loop.
Do you currently have a feedback system in place? ✍🏻
An employee shares detailed feedback on being unhappy with the leave policy. How would you respond?
Why Closing the Loop Matters 🔂
It's not just about listening anymore; it's also about acting, responding, and communicating back. It builds trust, fosters continuous improvement, and creates a culture of mutual respect and collaboration. 🤝
The management not only acknowledges this feedback 📣 but also initiates a review process 🔄.
They involve the team in discussions 🗨️, weigh the pros and cons ⚖️.
Finally, they communicate the outcome back to the team 📢, explaining the rationale behind the decision taken 💡.
This transparent process turns a simple suggestion into a powerful tool for engagement and morale-boosting 💪.
When an employee sees their feedback leading to a constructive dialogue and possibly, tangible changes, it can enhance their sense of contribution and fulfillment at work 🌟.
I recognize that for large organizations, it might seem like a Herculean task 🏋️♂️ to track, analyze, and respond to each piece of feedback individually. But let this not be a deterrent 🚫.
The key is not in addressing each feedback separately but in effectively categorizing and grouping similar feedback 🗂️.
This approach allows for a consolidated response that not only acknowledges the common themes in the feedback but also demonstrates a proactive approach 🚀
Go Incognito 🥸
Fear of judgment often hinders honest opinions and valuable insights. But anonymous feedback systems can help create a safe channel for employees to voice their concerns. 🗣️
Close the feedback loop with EngageWith. 🔁
By putting these ideas into action, you'll change your workplace to a place where everyone feels heard, involved, and, let's be honest, happier. 🤗
Picture this: Stanley, who usually never smiles, now grinning not because of a snack, but because he knows his opinions can make a real difference at work. 🙌
