Top Areas for Employee Input
Here are some workplace decisions that best lend themselves to employee input.
Training - Given the right tools employees can self assess and identify training they need to overcome skill gaps or increase skill levels. Setting a budget limit for training and allowing employees to choose is worth considering.
Staffing - have employees participate in the hiring process for people who will be on their team, but make clear how their input will be used.
Information Sharing - Ask employees what information they need. Share with them what comes across your desk.
Benefits - With the rising cost of health care, some companies give employees a budget to spend on what they need.
Recognition - Ask employees how they want to be recognized. Get their input on what will motivate them with options such as financial bonuses, time off, or additional training.
