How and where we work has drastically changed over the last year. Whether a company is making the decision to keep their WFH structure or head back to the office, something to keep top of mind is workplace wellbeing. Regular check-ins with employees can have a positive impact and create a healthy culture across a company.
Positive Outcomes from Check-ins
- Regular check-ins provide an opportunity to evaluate an employee’s level of engagement. Talking about their performance and goals can foster motivation and improve productivity. This is also an opportunity to identify and work through any issues.
- Clear Direction. During these one-on-one meetings, an employer can verify if an employee is receiving direction well. The meeting provides a dedicated time for an employee to ask questions about processes or upcoming projects in a one-on-one environment.
- Improved Employee Welfare. Check-ins give employees the chance to discuss personal topics or sources of stress they may be experiencing. It is also a chance for an employer to build motivation, show understanding, and let the employee know they are valued.
- Devoted Face to Face Time. It is important to enable eye contact and other non-verbal cues to help build trust and rapport between supervisor and employee. Video conferencing makes chatting face to face easy for those companies still working outside of the office.
Employees value check-ins and they are an easy opportunity for supervisors to make positive impacts on individual employees and the company as a whole.
