The new year is upon us and while many of us are diving head first into 2023, others may not be tackling the new year with quite so much gusto.
Ask leaders and HR professionals about their challenges in 2022! Most will respond with three common themes; difficulty recruiting staff, a struggle to retain employees, and a burnout and disengaged workforce.
If there is anything leaders and HR professionals can take into 2023, it is that your team’s voice will shape their work experience.
And while there is no quick fix, you can create more engaged employees by listening to them, valuing their feedback, and involving them in decisions that impact their experience at work.
Consider an exit interview: you want to capture why an employee has left your organisation and you are looking to gain valuable insight to improve your business. But who said you need to wait until an employee is burnt out, disengaged, and ready to move on?
Why not rely on your current employees for this information and introduce ‘stay surveys’ and conversations? More and more organisations are relying on stay conversations to gather feedback. As the name suggests, stay surveys focus on the reasons why employees want to remain in their current role or with the organisation.
Gathering feedback is just the first step to engagement and checking in on your team’s well-being. Watch this space and follow us on our socials for more tips and tricks! As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you could use more support! #wevegotyourback
