One of the most powerful feedback mechanisms you should be relying on is to tap into your new employee’s take on your company. In real time.
Over the years of being in business, many aspects of your company – from your processes to your public facing marketing communications – become common place, ingrained and often overlooked when retooling and reacting to the marketplace. We all grow stale. And, at times, complacent.
New employees can provide a fresh prospective if you are willing to ask the hard questions – “is the job what you expected?” “are we what we said we were?”
Most of your new employees are probably Millennials and they are a great resource for feedback, as Millennials research and shop differently than older generations. Social awareness and lifestyle choices direct their buying habits. So who better to get a general review of who you really are than from your new employees?
Employee feedback is always vital and timely. Tap into your newest employees to see if what you pitched them is actually true. And what you’re pitching to the world works for them.
