Examples of popular HR projects include:


Employee Feedback

No one knows the methods, systems, and procedures of your organization better than your employees. Employees are the company, and we can't possibly meet the needs of our employees without getting their feedback. Employee feedback often goes under the names

  • Job Satisfaction Surveys
  • Employee Opinion Surveys
  • Organizational Climate Surveys
  • Work Climate Surveys
  • Pulse Surveys

When we seek feedback, and especially if we act on it, we send a very strong message to employees that they are important to the company. With feedback we can improve quality, productivity, and customer service. We can find out what's going right with the company and what might be going wrong. We can find opportunities to save money and ways to increase our bottom line. We might also learn some of our managers should not be managers and uncover those employees who'd make great supervisors.

 

Successful companies gather feedback and use it to their advantage. In one company, employees told the owner that his hand-picked successor was not a good fit for the company and he was removed. In another company, an employee offered a suggestion that saved the company over a million dollars per year. And, in still another company, an employee originated a new product idea that became a billion-dollar-a-year industry.

 

360 Degree Feedback Review

360 degree feedback is an evaluation process in which you answer questions about yourself, your manager evaluates you by answering similar questions, as do your direct reports, peers, and customers, as applicable. You receive a gap analysis detailing how you perceive yourself versus how others perceive you.

 

360 feedback often goes under the names:

  • 360 Degree Feedback Reviews
  • 360 Degree Surveys
  • 360 Performance Reviews
  • Multi-source Feedback
  • Multi-rater Assessments
  • Upward Feedback
  • Peer Evaluations

Performance Evaluations and Appraisals

Performance evaluations and appraisals provide a formal opportunity for communication between managers and employees, with the goal of improving employee performance and professional growth. Performance appraisals also provide a documented, supportable basis for making personnel decisions regarding wage increases, promotions, and the benefits of additional development and training.


Exit Interviews

Exit interviews can be an effective way to ascertain the reasons employees leave your company. After departure, employees may feel more comfortable answering questions truthfully about recruitment practices, management, wages, benefits, work environment, opportunities for advancement and other aspects of their work experience.

 

Organizational Improvement

Organizational Improvement Projects are programs that enable employees to function productively and happily within a position that suits both personality and skill-level. Many organizational improvement projects have demonstrated payback of greater than 10:1. Employee Feedback, 360 Feedback Reviews, Performance Evaluations and Exit Interviews often play an important role in these programs in regards to information gathering, employee involvement, and ongoing measurement.
