With Quiet Quitting and The Great Resignation being significant concerns to many of our Members, providing employee feedback appears to a useful, but significantly underutilized approach for mitigating these problems.
Workplace surveys consistently show that employees crave better information about how they could improve their performance. But most say they don’t get it… “It might feel like an awkward habit to develop, but feedback is crucial to a thriving workplace.”
A recent international employee survey found that 72% of respondents rated “managers providing critical feedback” as important for them in career development, while another survey found only 5% believe managers provide such feedback. And 69% of employees claim they would put in more effort at work if they felt more recognized.
Another perspective, according to various Gallup Polls: employees who are given effective, positive feedback regularly are more engaged, productive, stay longer with the company and show greater profitability.
For this discussion, we’ll briefly review these data points, and some other related information and exhibits.
We’ll then discuss the Group’s answers to the following questions:
This month, we’ll also have an Extended Go-Round as we hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?”
Our San Gabriel Valley Technology Round Table meets on the 1st Friday of the month (with the exception of some holidays ) – via Zoom and sometimes with an In-Person option. (*June 30 meeting date due to 4th of July holiday)
"ABL has been a great pay-off for me and I have found great value. It has brought me help in financing the company, resolving financial issues, and customer problems. And it’s served for personal growth, too."
"I probably would have to pay 16 consultants to get the kind of great information I get from the Round Tables and the people in my group."
"ABL is the best business meeting series I have ever attended. It is a professional organization for CEOs and Presidents, where the Members bring the real day to day business cases to the meeting and share opinions and solutions. I do my best to participate every meeting I can."
"The big thing that ABL provides to us is that it’s companies of like interests, as opposed to other types of groups that have CEOs with maybe very divergent interests."
"The best thing for me about ABL are the great people in the Organization. It’s a caring group of people, they are very open in sharing their own problems, and that leads to an environment where you can share your problems back. And they’re non-judgmental. They’ll give you the best advise they can. You can take it or not."
"ABL is a wealth of information, knowledge, and camaraderie. You really get to trust the other Members, and you become more than business associates that meet once a month – you become friends."
