We live in a world of constant feedback. There is a
smartphone in our pocket and we get comments all the
time - whether we like it or not. If you think about it,
social media platforms are all built on 100% feedback,
right? So we are used to getting comments on what we
have cooked, where we were with our friends or what
we think of the world. But there’s another aspect of
feedback. We mostly learn skills at college, so we have
to put theory into realization, gain practical knowledge
at work. Feedback helps us know whether we are on the
right track, going in the right direction and developing
in a way which is good not only for us personally, but
for our company as well. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not
talking about a tap on our head, candies and carrots.
Give us meaningful and helpful comments on our job.
Forget employer assessment once a year. Go for constant
comments on our performance. Think of feedback as
signposts on the road showing us which way to go. Help
us to excel and develop. Communicate the big picture and
reward the small wins. And we will love you for that.
