We know you care deeply about every employee’s job satisfaction, and we want to help you ensure that by maintaining an open line of communication with employees, you can demonstrate how seriously you take their happiness and well-being.

This blog serves as a tool to assist with opening up a dialogue of honest feedback from your employees. It is crafted to help you better understand their perspective on the company and their role within it. Ultimately, you will be able to meet your employee where they are and ensure you have the information necessary to improve their overall experience with your company and their job. This is the goal of a STAY CONVERSATION…you don’t want to wait to have this dialogue when they are ready to leave.

  • How have you been feeling about work in general?
  • How have you been feeling about balancing work and home?
  • Do you feel like you’re learning and growing here?
  • If not, is there anything I can do to improve your experience?

Next Steps:

  • Address any issues and solve them together.
  • Maintain an open line of communication and address anything that comes up in the future.
