"This is so boring."
"Why am I being asked these questions again?"
"They don't even do anything with the results, so what's the point?"
Employee engagement surveys. Very important. Very tedious.
Here's how you can get your team onboard:
🔁 Make it a habit.
Get your team to complete the survey in the first 5 minutes of your weekly team meetings.
🤝Make it obvious that you are doing something with the results.
Spend the last 10 minutes of your weekly team meetings going through the survey results (in aggregate). Work together to identify the issue you want to solve before the next team meeting.
📈Make progress clear.
In the last 10 minutes of your weekly team meeting spend time talking about how you solved the issue raised in the previous team meeting.
🌴Make sure you lead by example.
If your survey results are showing that your team are consistently tired, be the first to book time off. But don't stop there. Be very vocal about it and encourage your team members to do the same.
