Meet your people where they are: Feedback in the flow of work
The rhythm of work as we know it has changed – and it keeps changing.
Many of us spent two years hopping from one video call to the next and thinking of jeans as "home office fancy," only to be asked to return to the office – at least some of the time. While walking by a colleague's desk to connect or share feedback directly is now possible, most companies operate under a hybrid model. Part of your workforce may be working at home on any given day. You may even have some fully remote employees who live nowhere near one of your offices.
While the way we work has become much harder to predict, we do know that timely feedback is vital to the employee experience – which is why we at Culture Amp believe it's important to meet your people where they are, no matter where they work.
Connect, inspire, and motivate your people
Our people scientists have found that companies that regularly share feedback not only boost levels of connection, but they also see higher levels of employee engagement and performance. In companies where managers give employees actionable, regular feedback, employees are 67% more likely to agree that they feel motivated to go above and beyond than employees who don't receive this feedback. Additionally, employees who get better manager feedback are 1.9x more engaged.
Your new integrations for feedback in the flow of work
Technology can be a powerful tool for fostering connection and engagement among a dispersed workforce. At Culture Amp, we believe in bringing the power of feedback to you — so it’s a seamless experience no matter what tool you use. That’s why we’ve developed integrations with Microsoft Teams and Slack, making feedback just a click away.
Let’s look at what you can do with our Microsoft Teams and Slack integrations.
The best feedback is timely, specific, and actionable. That’s why we’ve made it easy to give feedback where work is happening. Simply type the name of the person and provide your feedback.
Whenever somebody gives you feedback, you'll be able to get a notification and read the feedback without leaving Microsoft Teams or Slack. The feedback is saved on your Culture Amp profile and can be made available for managers to review — allowing for more impactful coaching conversations. Moreover, this helps mitigate recency bias during the performance review process.
Ask for feedback
Asking for feedback is easy – just type the name of the person you’d like to get feedback from and include a message to provide context on what you would like feedback on.
Receive timely notifications about your people & culture
Stay up to date on any new insights, whether that’s surveys that require your attention or new reports you have access to.
Cultivating a culture of feedback in our every-changing world of work
Companies that successfully develop a culture of feedback make it part of their natural rhythm of work. They do that by increasing the opportunities for employees to share feedback and making it frictionless. A study by Deloitte validated this and found that high-performing organizations are 2.2x more likely to integrate performance management technology with other workflow systems than low-performing organizations.
Rachel Bondi, Chief Partner Officer at Microsoft Australia, agrees that creating more opportunities for feedback and connection is vital. She shares:
"The collaboration with Culture Amp makes it easy for organizations and their employees to give and receive feedback from Microsoft Teams. With remote working the new normal, we’ve seen Microsoft Teams usage increase to over 75 million daily active users globally. Timely, relevant, and actionable feedback can transform organizations and we’re excited to work with Culture Amp who are leading the way in making this a reality for companies around the world."
Arturo Arrarte, Head of Enterprise, Asia Pacific at Slack, says a strong culture has always been a good predictor of success. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he shared:
"As we have shifted to remote work at an unprecedented speed, it is those organizations that are intent on fostering their culture and supporting their people who are faring better and pivoting faster. Culture Amp is at the forefront of a critical shift in measuring employee engagement continuously, and importantly online, rather than relying on legacy feedback models like the annual face-to-face meeting in the office. Integrating the Culture Amp app with Slack is just another way we’re making work simpler, more pleasant, and more productive,” said Mr. Arrarte.
