WHY EMPLOYEE OPINION SURVEYS ARE STILL ESSENTIAL WORKPLACE TOOLS

Surveys are great tools for mining the riches of information within employees; they will always be essential. Turning to employees to hear what they have to say is the first step of wise leadership and smart planning. However, there lies within the people of any organization much more than just raw information about where they are coming from that surveys retrieve. There is a treasure trove of passion, creativity, and courage to succeed that can be harnessed only through personal rapport and camaraderie; a deeper Human connection built on mutual trust and caring.
In this quality of work environment there is a team spirit that makes continuous improvement conversations an ordinary part of the work day and strategic tools like surveys soar in their effectiveness.There is an under lying attitude to this quality of team environment; one of caring about each other as Human Beings; dare I even say a Love for each other’s well-being as team mates. This is why ‘The Art of Love is Good Business’.
