Thanksgiving is around the corner and it’s time to give thanks. This time of year is the perfect opportunity to show your employees how important they are and make them feel valued, which is something we crave as humans. 

CEO of The Energy Project, Tony Schwartz wrote an article for Harvard Business Review titled “The Only Thing that Really Matters”. He wrote that “the struggle to feel valued is one of the most insidious and least acknowledged issues in organizations.

Employee NPS drives customer NPS and customer NPS drives company growth. So what is NPS? It stands for Net Promotor Score and it measures experience and loyalty. Basically, if you want to make money you have to keep your employees happy and loyal. Clear communication will outweigh any perks an office provides to its employees. If employees feel that management and leadership don’t effectively communicate with them and if they feel unfulfilled in their work, basketball tickets and raffles won’t stop them from seeking fulfillment somewhere else. This is why maintaining a feedback loop is crucial to running a good business. Here are some ideas to assure both leadership and employees are “in the loop”.

Alignment by Cascading Goals

Cascading goals is the process of setting and linking goals at different levels within a company. The intention is to ensure and maintain the alignment of a company’s objectives and employees’ goals and activities.


At the top, the CEO sets a company-wide goal, then assigns roles or tasks to lower leadership in order to accomplish these goals.

Employees should always keep in mind what picture their piece of the puzzle is helping put together.
