When it comes to employee feedback, from employee engagement surveys, onboarding or exit surveys, or from external sources, the scores are only the beginning. Open-ended responses -- which can number in the hundreds of thousands or more over time -- offer a treasure trove of information. When unlocked, they can contain the key to identifying systemic or isolated issues that may eventually lead to unwanted attrition, stunted organizational performance and even blows to the organization’s reputation.

In this program, Sara Weiner, Ph.D., will discuss advice and best practices for pulling the critical stories and insights out of comments and how to harness these stories to take the actions that make a difference in the employee experience and business performance. Shane Combest, a product management leader with a decade of experience in B2B technology, will highlight the innovations that help organizations leverage open-ended feedback to truly understand their company’s story … and rewrite the ending.

You will hear about:

  • The stories that comments can tell beyond engagement or performance scores.
  • How to avoid common pitfalls in interpreting comments (and training your leaders to do the same).
  • How to interpret comments to contribute to action planning that makes a difference.
