When a company grows, most of the time the management starts caring more about their people. They try to spend as much time as possible with each and every person in the company, but still, there are somethings left unsaid. This, is a bad thing for any organization.
Many times, your team members want to express some of their own ideas, and try things differently from the way it currently is in the company. May be, they think that expressing their thoughts openly would make them vulnerable to being judged. Or they're afraid that they would be seen differently from the rest of the crowd.
These things exist in almost all the companies. And when the management fails to understand these minor issues, the person's loyalty and attachment to the company goes down, ultimately, making them quit the company.
According to Gallup, an alarming 83% of the employees worldwide "are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive."
This is alarming for a CEO or a Manager of a company. But, fortunately, there's a fix for this particular issue. Read on.
If you deeply look into the Internet, major publications have been publishing stories about the characteristics of great leaders running great companies.
The fact is, the world's best leaders, were not just best at decision making, but they were the best at listening to people and reacting to them.
Understand Better is a simple platform for the CEOs and business owners to make their people feel valuable to the company, again. Let me take a moment to explain this real quick. Here are the four important things the platform does for you:
- Helps you create a transparent company, by asking them the right questions at the right time. Ask to-the-point questions, rather than something generic like "How is it going?"
- Get regular updates about what your people are working on, and what's on their plate
- Talk to your team, and ask for ideas from your people. Make them feel inclusive in the decisions you might be taking.
- Give them instant feedback. Appreciate their work in the company, and let everyone know about their achievements automatically.
Ultimately, Understand Better 'lets' people express their ideas, rather than you asking them for it. With features like Meet Me cards, Catchup and Memories, it's a no brainer for companies struggling with problems like these.
Today, we're launching Understand Better as a stable product for CXOs and Managers. If you are one of them, and if you think your company is falling under the 73% possible attrition rate, then Understand Better is one platform you will need.
