Having never experienced a pandemic like this in modern times, many leaders are unsure how their employees' work and home lives are affected. Benchmark data from the survey shows:
- 39% of employees are looking for more communication from their leadership about the impact of COVID-19 on their company
- 54% of employees admit they are worried about their organization
- Two-thirds of the employees surveyed feel it is more difficult for them to perform effectively in their roles now
- 50% of them don't believe they will achieve their performance expectations this fiscal year
Leaders can use their company-specific results to proactively understand their team members' mindsets and respond accordingly – both to achieve better performance and to show your employees that you care.
"When companies execute this survey, it doesn't just provide crucial info, but it shows your team members that their thoughts and opinions matter right now," says Bill Eckstrom, EcSell Institute CEO. "In a world where a lot is out of control, what you can control is making sure your team knows you're thinking of them, and this survey helps you do that."
Even though 91% of employees feel confident in their leaders' ability to successfully lead them through this pandemic, many leaders still consider this the biggest challenge of their careers. The COVID-19 Insight Survey™ is a valuable tool to properly navigate the post-pandemic landscape.
