St Valentine’s Day is celebrated every year on 14th February and is an opportunity to ensure your loved ones know how much you love and appreciate them. Whilst romantic love is most commonly celebrated on Valentine’s Day, there are some other important people, and relationships to celebrate and share the love with on 14th February – your employees and colleagues!
For any relationship to be successful both parties need to feel that their opinions are important and their contributions are valued. This is especially true for working relationships, as employees that feel valued are likely to be more motivated and therefore more productive.
There are a couple of methods to ensure your employees feel valued:
1.Conduct an Employee Engagement survey to gather their opinions
Conducting an employee engagement survey allows you to collect data from your employees on a range of aspects of the workplace, from the job role itself to the culture of the organisation. By asking employees directly, you can collect valid feedback and ensure that the work environment you offer is suited to their needs. Gaining employee feedback is vital to ensure that you are providing the right things to ensure that they continue to feel valued and therefore more motivated.We can provide a HR Compass solution which is designed to assess staff satisfaction, covering a wide range of topics so that you can ensure the right information is collected for your organisation. Asking the right questions ensures that useful, actionable feedback can be collected.
2. Provide positive feedback and encouragement
Recognition for a job well done confirms to employees and colleagues that their contribution is valuable and you appreciate the effort they have expended. Recognition for good work is motivating as employees and colleagues want to maintain this good standard. Also, providing constructive criticism and guidance can help an employee or colleague to develop and improve and shows you care about their development.Conducting a 360-degree evaluation survey allows you to provide feedback to employees and colleagues, giving them the opportunity to collect data on their strongest skills and successful areas, and constructive guidance to areas where their skills could be improved. This data can be empowering to employees and colleagues as this helps them to structure their personal development.Receiving positive feedback and recognition helps to reinforce good practice and is rewarding for the employee. We can provide a 360-degree evaluation process tailored to your needs.
3. Share best practice and success stories
Recognition for good work is motivating for the individual employee, so go a step further by sharing this information and promoting good work throughout the organisation. Sharing best practice like this has many benefits, including improvements in efficiency and productivity as employees and colleagues have a tangible example of best practice and can begin to replicate it, creating a culture for learning and development within the organisation.Webropol VIEW is an ideal tool to share best practice and success stories, as you can create dashboards containing all types of elements such as report data, files and videos to share with the organisation and externally. Dashboards could be used as an interactive newsletter sharing performance news and KPIs, or to create a resource library for training, or to share key news with customers.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Webropol!
