On feeling heard

As many of us work from home, some companies worry about employee performance. Employers are asking “How can I keep my team engaged?”

According to a Salesforce Research report, one of the most powerful things a manager can do is to make sure her employees feel like their voice is being heard. Employees who feel their voice is being heard are 4.6X more likely to feel empowered to perform their best work.

So now more than ever, managers should solicit feedback from employees. Ask them how you are doing as a manager, what you could do better, what worries them, and what they need to do their job. And know that you don’t always need to have an answer for everything. Sometimes, psychological air is all that is needed. And if you want helpful feedback from them, make sure you are transparent about the current situation and your future plans.

Speaking of feedback, this blog is approaching its 700-post milestone. How am I doing? What could I do better? What would help you better navigate ethics & compliance issues at work? Please let me know in the comment section below. Thank you!
