Have you ever felt that you do not understand your employees well enough and the divide between you and your employees is too wide for your liking? It can be easy to get consumed by your own tasks and neglect the needs and concerns of the employees in your company.
If you can relate to what is mentioned above, it is time for you to take measures to understand your employees better! A great way to do so is to use various tactics to collect constructive employee feedback.
Here are 4 Easy and Effective ways for you to collect employee feedback.
1. Conduct Surveys
Ever wondered what your employees don’t like the most about the workplace? Or how they are like as people, and whether they genuinely enjoy bonding together?
You can easily get your answers through employee surveys. Here are some suggestions on what surveys you can get started with:
- Employee opinion and satisfaction surveys
- What do you not like most in the workplace?
- Employee culture survey
- Employee engagement surveys
- What activities do you enjoy doing most?
- What stage of work are you at now?
- Do you feel that you have work life balance?
2. Peer-to-peer evaluation
Peer-to-peer feedback form – there are plenty of apps out there to get peer evaluation feedback. However, these apps can cost quite a fair amount of money. If you do not have the budget for this, you can also create a peer-to-peer feedback form using Google Forms and Google Sheets.

3. 1-on-1 meetings
Sometimes, you may not get the feedback that you desire through written submissions. The tried-and-trusted method of having 1-on-1 meetings with your employees allows you to have a more casual discussion and also grasp any nuances that they may not be willing to share via a survey form.
4. Conduct a post-project review
After every project (or even after any sales case (be it successful or unsuccessful) or customer support case) get your employees to share their feedback of their experience, and what they think could have been done better. You may gather some very interesting insights from this.
