Plan the first reporting immediately after you have finished analyzing the feedback. Briefly discuss the ideas you have obtained with your employees. The feedback is full of great input for engaging in conversations and taking action together. Which ideas for improvement have been signaled? How can you apply them? It’s important to openly discuss issues that may be impossible or difficult to improve. Based on your list of priorities, you can then decide whether something is worth spending energy on or if it may be more valuable to focus on other issues that you can directly influence.
Actions for improvement
Focused, recognizable actions for improvement can increase the enthusiasm of your employees. What are your strengths and how can you improve even more in this area? Focused interventions are more cost effective and easier to implement than large-scale, organization-wide improvement programs. And they can have a huge impact!
Once you have selected actions for improvement, it’s important to follow the progress:
- Think about who is responsible for monitoring each point of action.
- Make sure that the points of action are included in your annual budget. This ensures that the feedback does not just remain a mere objective alone but that these ideas are integrated into your way of working.
- Provide regular updates regarding the progress of your actions towards improvement. This motivates and helps everyone to remain sharp and alert.
Did the steps lead to positive results? The subsequent feedback process is the ideal time to determine that. You will then come to realize just how valuable your investments and efforts have been. If you need to implement another feedback process in the future, you will be able to make a decision about it together. Employee engagement surveys are often limited to once every one or two years. The employees’ opinions are of course valuable throughout the entire year, especially when faced with constant changes. Customization is important here; the frequency of your feedback must suit your organization or team.
By using feedback as a sustainable instrument, you increase the probability of consistently improving yourselves and anticipating things that can be improved. This keeps your organization versatile, flexible and adaptable to change.
