It’s always a good idea to ask employees to complete the following set of questions prior to your annual planning sessions:
– What do we start doing? – What should we stop doing? – What should we keep doing? – What are we doing too much of? – What are we not doing enough of?
These surveys should be channeled through the supervisor of the department, reviewed, catalogued and passed on to the leaders attending. The employee’s input should be measured and used to help determine the priority and initiatives for the next year. How frequently do you ask your employees for their input? We recommend you do this a minimum of once a year.
