While most of us agree that employee flourishing and wellbeing are important, organizations often struggle with putting these things into practice. Whether you’re struggling to get your team to complete an employee evaluation form or engagement survey, or you have the feedback but don’t know what to do with it, we want to help you define what it means in your context, measure it accurately, and create a culture where your team can feel fulfilled in and out of the workplace.
Keys to Flourishing
How can we expect our teams to stay motivated if they aren’t seeing results? Physical health, mental health, and connection to community are three major aspects of flourishing. In addition to standard performance evaluation questions, consider asking your team how they felt connected to the broader work over the course of the week or month. Do they understand how their work is moving the whole organization forward towards its impact goals? Ask your team if they have the resources they need to flourish physically as well as mentally, with the current demands they face on the job day to day. How can you create a culture that empowers them to flourish in all aspects of life, without compromising their performance?
For this to be effective, you must work to help your staff understand that performance reviews are an opportunity for them to refine their daily activities so that they can have a greater impact in their role and in the world.These meetings may serve as a realignment to avoid misunderstandings and a means of pausing, taking a step back, and recalibrating professional development plans. Individuals who get the value and intent of performance evaluations will be on board, approach them positively, and consider them opportunities for professional development. Ultimately, these meetings will become a platform that enables your team to create a professional development plan they are passionate about. When your team flourishes at work, that can overflow into other areas of their life.
