One on One / Employee Feedback Guide

Employee Touchpoint - Getting the Most out of Your One on One

Effective Communication is not something that is only done at review time.  Leaders who are committed to their employee’s success create a frequency of touchpoints or one on one meetings, with the employees throughout the year.

To get the most value out of your one one one, employees are encouraged to take time to capture their thoughts, prior to the actual meeting.  This allows employees the opportunity to reflect on what they would like to discuss.  Documenting their thoughts in Threads allows leaders to have a better understanding what is important to the employees.  This insight, prior to the conversation, helps guide and clarify the communication that will take place.

The following is a guide that you can encourage leaders to use, to  assist them in conducting a successful one on one.  Admins of Threads are encouraged to customize this process (including questions) to fit the needs of their organization.  Once a process has been established, it is a best practice to save it to the “company documents” section of Threads, where it can be accessible to all employees.

One week prior to meeting:

The Manager should email employee one or more questions, with an explanation that these will be the focus of the upcoming one on one meeting.  The leader should encourage the employee to capture their answers to the questions in the feedback section of their Threads profile, prior to the meeting.
