Know Your Company
Every week I wanted to learn something new about how my employees felt about our business, our work, and our culture. Every week I wanted everyone to know what everyone else was working on. It’s not enough for me to be informed - everyone’s in this together. Every week I wanted everyone to share something non-work related with each other. A book they read recently, a new recipe they’ve tried, something, anything that would help form surprise bonds between people. I wanted all this information catalogued and plotted over time. This way I could spot trends and shifts in morale, hone in on longer-term insights, spot outliers that need special attention, etc.
