Better workplace - all around suggestions
posted by doorsfan to Work & Money (8 answers total) 6 users marked this as a favorite
The company that I work for takes employee feedback very seriously and encourages improvement suggestions. This month there is a submission competition and I'd like to finish out the month with a couple of more suggestions.
I'm the web content manager so I can't submit anything website related so most of my suggestions have been really general, HR, workplace environment improvement kind of stuff - most recently I suggested we remove the elevator floor number (not the button) and replace it with our company logo (a nice little enhancement for the clients that visit us).
With that in mind, do you have any generic workplace/company improvements that you can suggest? Bonus points if it doesn't cost the company anything and or saves money.
*writing this I came up with another
Monthly employee lunch meet and greets.
We (almost literally) work in silos, and I think it would be a great employee perk to have the opportunity to have regular scheduled lunches to meet coworkers. The company doesn't even have to pay for lunch, just provide the space (we don't have a lunchroom but a bunch of small break rooms) and the opportunity to meet coworkers.
