Do you know how your team feels about COVID-19?

by | Blog Posts | 0 comments

In uncertain times with social distancing, global lockdowns and economic shifts, do you know if your employees feel supported? While remote working is growing, to combat the spread of COVID-19, employees could be feeling more isolated than ever before. The need to check in with your employees in an unobtrusive, constructive way is vital; therefore, it is essential to be sending surveys to get feedback and implement change. 

While these times seem unprecedented, the need for an open conversation is a familiar feeling amongst employees. Offering a platform to voice concerns and combat isolation amongst teams is key to keeping your finger on the pulse of your business. Managers and executives can seamlessly check-in with their entire organization through surveys and gain insights into making better decisions.

How to Approach Survey’s During This Pandemic

Getting insight into how your team is feeling in an anonymous, non-judgemental manner is critical for leadership to understand trends amongst employees and address them head-on. During this period, there are few themes and questions that could assist you in creating better surveys that ask the right questions for your team. 

  1. Remote workers tend to display and share concerns in different ways than they would in an office setting. Employees who are new to remote working might be having a difficult time adjusting. Still, since they can’t just pop to their manager’s office to have a conversation, they’ll refrain from expressing any concerns, ultimately impacting dialogue between teams.
  2. While it is crucial to communicate accurate, up-to-date information, it is more important to communicate with your employees. Sending out communications with information that you know as well as demonstrating that you may not have all the information.
  3. Share information from experts in the field through articles and think pieces. These resources and ideas from others might not be the perfect fit as-is for your business, but possibly there is an idea a team member resonates with and could adapt to your team to enhance productivity and morale. 
  4. Open communication channels are more important than ever. Employees should feel free to share their questions with the executives, managers or HR. Surveys will empower employees to communicate concerns anonymously.
