This week we will be exploring the why, how and resources around feedback.
It's important to remember that feedback is not just about being constructive, it's also about being positive.
Take a minute to consider the last feedback you received. What was it like? Was it a positive experience? Was the feedback process a two way street (i.e. to you, and back to the person you were speaking with?)?
Unfortunately feedback is not always well modeled, nor is it regular. In many organizational cultures leaders shy away from providing feedback except in formal meetings. It is important to provide feedback in a regular basis, including in the virtual space.
Here are some interesting factoids about feedback:
- A Towers Watson study found that "43% of engaged employees receive feedback at least once a week compared to only 18% of employees with low engagement." (quoted at https://talentcove.com/blog/13-startling-facts-to-know-about-employee-engagement-and-feedback/)
- OfficeVibe.com notes "14.9% lower turnover rates in companies that implement regular employee feedback." (https://www.officevibe.com/blog/infographic-employee-feedback)
- 65% of employees say they want more feedback according to business2community.com's infographic about feedback - view it at http://www.business2community.com/human-resources/11-remarkable-statistics-importance-employee-feedback-infographic-01030460#iSoBSGsjVgL7PPPB.97
Tomorrow we are going to explore Why Feedback is important and later tips on providing feedback.
Have a great week,
