Why acting on feedback matters

The feedback
action gap

It’s important my
company listens to me

I have an opportunity to provide feedback

My employer acts on feedback very well

All organisations are different, and all the people within them have different needs. There is no-one-size-fits-all solution for fostering belonging in the workplace. What’s important is to listen to what your individual people need – and most importantly, action that feedback to meet those needs.

Improving experience management
in your organisation


Employee well-being

In 2020 employee well-being rose to become a core metric of our engagement model and is a major area organisations can focus on as they continue to face disruption in 2021.


Taking action on feedback

Asking for feedback is just the start — not taking action on it is worse for engagement than not asking for it in the first place. Closing that gap should be a priority in 2021.


Manager effectiveness

Managers play a huge role in helping with engagement, well-being, belonging, resilience – in fact almost every key driver we’ve looked at. In 2021, make sure your managers have the support they need to improve the experience for their teams.
